Every pregnancy is a time full of new sensations, both physical and emotional. From expanding waistlines to sore muscles, nighttime leg cramps to headaches, pregnancy is complete with difficult feelings alongside excitement, anticipation, and the thrill of a new baby and growing family. It can be a particularly overwhelming period of life!
One thing is for certain, however, and that’s how prenatal massage can help promote good feelings while nurturing the mind and body connection to induce a deep sense of relaxation and decrease anxiety or stress levels.
At Elements Massage Central Scottsdale, our prenatal massage offers a therapeutic mode of massage that seeks to address the symptoms of pregnancy. Since blood and plasma volume increases in pregnant women, massage does wonders to alleviate general pains, relieve edema, reduce backaches and promote the circulation of blood and lymph to ease tension from nerves or hormonal changes while promoting the ability to get better sleep!
Before you head into our studio, be sure to talk to your doctor and let them know that you are thinking about adding regular massage therapy sessions to your wellness routine. It is important to verify that your pregnancy is low-risk and normal before adding in prenatal massage. Once you do this, we’d love to have you come in and talk to one of our expert massage therapists that can help you find the relief you are looking for.
From Swedish Massage to other forms, we perform a wide variety of massage techniques that can target your specific issues. Additionally, we also partner with MomDoc Midwives, a local group of certified nurses, midwives, and doctors who provide pregnancy, birth control, well woman checkups, and more for women in every stage of life.
We can’t wait to unlock the power of massage for every woman experiencing such a special time in life!
