What types of massage therapy do you offer?
We offer prenatal, postpartum, as well as therapeutic, and relaxation massage.
Do your massage therapist have any special training?
Yes, our massage therapists are certified in prenatal, postpartum, sports injury, orthopedic, and medical massage. That means that they have the experience necessary to offer you the highest level of care and are well aware of the precautions and contraindications associated with each of these modalities.
Is it safe to receive a massage during my pregnancy?
Yes, it is completely safe to receive a massage at any point in your pregnancy, especially from one of our certified and experienced massage therapists. In fact, the American Pregnancy Association states that “Modern investigation and research is proving that prenatal massage therapy can be a very instrumental ingredient in women’s prenatal care and should be given careful consideration.”
Can I get my massage lying on my stomach?
Your safety and the safety of your baby is our primary concern. In the early weeks of your pregnancy a front lying position is fine. However as your pregnancy progresses, a side lying position supported by bolsters, pillows and cushions is used. According to the American Pregnancy Association, tables that provide a hole in which the uterus can fit may not be reliable and can still apply pressure to the abdomen, or allow the abdomen to dangle, causing uncomfortable stretching of the uterine ligaments.
How long should I wait to receive a massage after delivery?
There is no hard and fast time frame; you can receive a massage as soon as you feel ready. Post partum massage can be very beneficial to your body after the trauma of delivery. Massage helps aid in healing by circulating oxygen rich blood through the body. It also reduces the incidence of postpartum depression. It is completely safe to receive a massage at any point after your delivery, especially from one of our certified and experienced massage therapists.
