Medicine Hat Prenatal Massage Technique Expert – Charlotte Welder, RMT

P

renatal massage shares many of the goals of regular massage but is tailored specifically to the needs of pregnant women and their changing bodies. The massage technique relaxes tense muscles and sore spots, promotes circulation and mobility, and improves your overall feeling of wellbeing. Prenatal massage may also help with pregnancy related issues such as low back pain, sciatic problems, chronic headaches, mild swelling and carpal tunnel syndrome. Furthermore, the massage may assist in decreasing stress by promoting relaxation which helps with other discomforts you may be feeling. A trained prenatal massage therapist knows where a pregnant woman’s discomforts are likely to be, as well as which areas and techniques to avoid which could be potentially harmful or uncomfortable. Remember to always communicate with your therapist and tell them where you need more or less attention depending on your specific needs that day. Finally, the prenatal massage will leave you dehydrated so it is important to drink plenty of water after your treatment. To book your prenatal massage please call us at 403 580 3334.
