Relaxing and therapeutic, prenatal massage offers benefits that extend from mother to child. A natural therapy treatment specifically designed to alleviate pregnancy-related symptoms and restore the harmonic balance of the expectant mother.
At Alquimia, our therapists are certified in Prenatal massage and offer the option of receiving the massage in side-lying position or on a prenatal massage table, which contains a supportive sling that gives the opportunity of being face down.
Whichever way it is you choose, it is our priority to make all the modifications necessary so that at all times during your session, you feel comfortable, safe and secure.
A Prenatal massage differs from a regular massage by focusing on the postural and anatomical changes a women goes through during pregnancy.
Pregnancy creates a wide range of physical and emotional changes, ranging from hormonal fluctuations to muscular tension and swelling. Studies have shown that massage therapy helps improve mood regulation and cardiovascular health when introduced into a women's prenatal care.
As with any therapeutic treatment during pregnancy, it is always recommended to consult with your physician or midwife prior to scheduling a prenatal massage. If high risk, a clearance note to receive massage is requested.
NOTE: If you wish to have your session on a pregnancy massage table instead of side-lying, please make sure to choose that option when scheduling online.
