Maternity and Pregnancy Massage

Pregnancy is a time of great physical change resulting from increased weight, shifting posture, and adjusting hormone levels.
Hormones, while preparing the body for the birth ahead, also cause musculo-skeletal changes creating heightened physical discomfort ranging from muscular tension and headaches to pressure on the knees.

Maternity massage is a hands on treatment aimed at alleviating some of the pregnancy related symptoms, while promoting relaxation.

All Physical Therapists that administer Maternity Massage have achieved a Certificate in Maternity Massage, using techniques that are safe and effective for pregnant women.

Prenatal massage offers a wide range of benefits, which include the following:


All expectant mothers should check with their doctors prior to getting a massage.
If you have gestational diabetes, high blood pressure, or preeclampsia pre-natal massage may not be recommended.
Maternity Massage cannot be given in the first 12 weeks of pregnancy.
