Prenatal Massage Therapy Services
When a woman is pregnant, it can be impossible to relax. Between planning for your new arrival, the natural worry which creeps in about the future and your ever-changing body, pregnancy can be a whirlwind and many moms-to-be experience anxiety, stress and depression.
While it’s completely natural to have feelings of stress during pregnancy, you can help by taking care of yourself and ensuring you and your baby have the best possible environment to thrive. It’s important to prioritize self care during pregnancy, and a great way to relax and recharge is through a prenatal massage.
I am a certified massage therapist and I have helped many people in the East Bay reach their health goals and relax through professional massage therapy. While I work with all types of people, prenatal massages have a special place for me because it’s so rewarding to help pregnant women find some time to relax and find support through their pregnancy.
Here are some answers to some of the most common questions I get about my prenatal massage services.

Is prenatal massage safe?
The most frequent question I am asked about prenatal massage is if it’s safe for mother and baby, which is completely understandable. It always makes sense for a mother to want to ensure safety for her child, and I take pride in meeting their needs. There are many ways to ensure a comfortable and effective massage while taking precaution to keep everyone safe. I have worked with numerous women and have the right knowledge and expertise to ensure safety throughout the entire process, and I am more than happy to go into detail on the prenatal massage process with my clients.
What are the physical benefits of prenatal massage?
During pregnancy, a woman’s body goes through many changes, some of which can be uncomfortable. Whether it’s muscle pain from the added stress on the body, difficulty getting comfortable or even headaches or nausea, a professional massage can help alleviate some of these symptoms and help a woman feel her best. A benefit of massage is the removal of many chronic pain factors which allow a woman to sleep better and get the rest she needs to help her baby grow and thrive herself.
Does a prenatal massage have other benefits?
A prenatal massage arguably has a bigger positive impact on mental health than physical health. While there are real physical benefits, the chance for a pregnant woman to relax and unwind is rare, and a prenatal massage uses proven techniques to promote relaxation and rejuvenation. Prenatal massage can help with feelings of depression, anxiety and stress, and many women choose to have them regularly during their pregnancy.
If you are pregnant or you have a loved one who is pregnant, a prenatal massage is a great way to help them relax and live as comfortably as possible. For more information on prenatal massage services in the East Bay Area, give me a call today.
