Prenatal and
Postpartum Massage

Pregnancy and postpartum are sacred periods in an expectant person’s life that should be honored. It is a journey filled with anticipation, excitement and possibly some discomfort. Therapeutic massage is a great way to support your sacred journey.

Benefits of Prenatal Massage


● Relieves stress, anxiety and/or depression

● Releases tight muscles thereby increasing flexibility

● Reduces muscular pain and discomfort by releasing endorphins

● Reduces insomnia and fatigue by promoting relaxation

● Reduces swelling of the hands, feet and ankles

● Enhances immune system function and body awareness

● Enhances the function of the placenta & promotes prolactin production

● Decreases blood pressure and relieves headaches

● Increases blood circulation and lymph flow

* If you are in your 1st trimester, a note from your provider is required to receive your prenatal massage.
