We started offering pregnancy massages in Sarasota because pregnancy is a beautiful time in a women's life. But, with that beauty can come discomfort as well. During pregnancy, your body goes through changes that can impact your quality of life, such as the build-up of fluid and swelling, low back pain, and nerve compression.
Often, our clients come to us wondering if receiving a massage during pregnancy is okay to do. Research has shown that receiving a massage during your pregnancy can help by reducing stress levels for a mother, relieving joint & muscle pain, improving labor and delivery outcomes, and impacting the overall health and wellness of your newborn.
However, we advise you to consult with your primary care doctor first to ensure that prenatal massage is right for you. If you have additional questions about pregnancy massage, speak to one of our certified massage therapists in your Sarasota area today!
At Mind Body Works, we go out of our way to make sure our pregnant clients feel supported and comfortable during pregnancy massage in Sarasota treatments.
Our massage therapists in Sarasota make sure to work with you to find the position that suits you, whether that be in side-lying on the massage table supported with pillows, on your back, or propped up with a wedge.
As this can be a trying time, we take the stress and discomfort out of the equation by tailoring your prenatal massage to your individualized needs.
**After you or your loved one gives birth, you are welcome to bring the baby to your massage appointment. After your massage, Rosetta will demonstrate beneficial infant massage techniques on your baby that you can do at home to promote relaxation, circulation, and digestion.
If you are undergoing a high-risk pregnancy, preeclampsia, have high blood pressure, previously miscarried, or have diabetes, a pregnancy massage may not be the right approach for you.
Please consult with your doctor or OBGYN to discuss your options further before booking a pregnancy massage with Mind Body Works Massage in Sarasota Florida.
If you are unable to receive a massage during your pregnancy, our therapist Rosetta can also provide you with other relaxation services. A luxurious facial treatment instead, for instance, targets the face, neck and head regions, calming and soothing the mind and body.
Of course, we are also available to answer any questions you have along the way!
