Prenatal Massage  Massage Therapy in Beaverton / Portland Raleigh Hills Oregon Kirstin Davis Massage Therapist Many methods of massage are both effective and safe prenatally and during labor and postpartum periods of women's pregnancies. The therapeutic bodywork focuses on the special needs of the mother-to-be as her body goes through dramatic changes of the childbirth experience. Prenatally, specific techniques can reduce pregnancy discomforts and concerns and enhance the physiological and emotional well-being of both mother and fetus.

Touch is vital to the mother's physical and emotional well-being as she adapts to her new body image. Regardless of individual circumstances, a pregnant woman's body is challenged, changed and stressed in many ways.

Prenatal/Pregnancy massage helps provide relaxation, relieve stress on weight-bearing joints (ankles, low back and pelvis), alleviate neck and back pain caused by muscle imbalance and weakness, assist in maintaining proper posture, assist in removal of unwanted fluids and toxins to help in avoiding toxemia, and to prepare the birthing muscles used during childbirth.

In the postpartum period, specialized techniques rebalanced structure, physiology and emotions of the new mother. Also to help address stress from sleeplessness and carrying and caring for a newborn.

If you have any conditions talk to your midwife or obstetrician about whether prenatal massage would be a good option for you. It is not recommended to get a massage in the first trimester.
