Pre and Post natal Massage

Massage Therapy is a natural choice that offers so many benefits to new moms and moms-to-be. Imagine relieving your body of any aches, pains and alignment issues during pregnancy and beyond. Increase your comfort levels and truly enjoy the transformation your body is going through.
Prenatal Massage Benefits:
  • alleviates muscle tension, cramps and spasms in the legs, hips, lower back, rib cage and neck areas
  • improved blood and lymph circulation, which can reduce swelling especially in the lower body
  • helps prevent possibilities of compensations (ie. poor posture due to expanding belly)
  • relaxation and stress reduction, which benefits both mom and growing baby

At Equilibrium Massage Therapy, all of our RMT’s have training in Prenatal Massage.  We get Mom extra comfy in a side lying posture supported by pillows.  We don’t use a pregnancy pillow system that allow Moms-to-be to lay on their stomaches because much of the literature by the leading  Pregnancy Massage Therapy experts caution against it as it may cause too much stress on the ligaments that support the extra weight of the baby in pregnancy.

Postnatal Massage Benefits:
  • alleviates muscular tension and fatigue
  • improves circulation due to changes in postures as a new mom
  • helps to balance hormones and reduce postpartum emotional challenges
  • aids in correcting posture
