When you have a baby, your body goes through a number of major changes – from an expanding belly to a shifting center of gravity, growing another human is hard work for your body. All these changes tend to present themselves in your back, neck, shoulders, and pelvis and leave your body aching and uncomfortable. Prenatal massage is very similar to a regular massage, focusing on relaxing tight muscles and relieving pain.

Our Denver massage therapist, Sarah Monreal, is fully trained in prenatal massage. This means that she is familiar with the parts of your body that will be sore and aching and knows how to provide pain relief without causing you any extra pain or discomfort.

What To Expect During A Prenatal Massage

It is completely natural to have some reservations about getting a massage while pregnant. We always recommend that you talk to your doctor if you are feeling nervous or have concerns. For many women, prenatal massages are perfectly safe and provide many benefits.

When you get a prenatal massage at Wayfare Wellness, we will have you lay on your side. We will provide plenty of pillows to accommodate you in your most comfortable position.

Another thing that many pregnant women forget is that YOU have the power in your massage therapy session! We want you to feel comfortable communicating with your massage therapist to let them know what is working and what is not. This is the best way for us to offer you a massage that feels good, relaxes you, and treats any symptoms of pain or discomfort you may be experiencing through this big change.

What Can A Prenatal Massage Treat?

Every woman's body is different, as are the things they experience while pregnant. One thing stays the same though: your body is undergoing some major changes to grow new life! So, your massage therapy session provides you with time to yourself to relax and reflect.

Prenatal massage can also treat:

  • Sciatic nerve pain

  • Back pain

  • Foot swelling

  • Carpal tunnel syndrome

All of these are side effects that women can experience while pregnant. A downtown Denver massage at Wayfare Wellness can help keep these side effects at bay so you can focus on what's most important: your baby.
