Therapeutic massage has been used for centuries to improve overall health, reduce stress and relieve muscle tension.

Studies indicate that massage therapy performed during pregnancy can reduce anxiety, decrease symptoms of depression, relieve muscle aches and joint pains and improve labor outcomes and newborn health. Massage therapy addresses different needs through varying techniques.

Here are some added benefits: hormone regulation, reduction of swelling, improvement of nerve pain, reduced back pain, reduced joint pain, improved circulation, reduced muscle tension and headaches, reduced stress and anxiety, improved oxygenation of soft tissues and muscles and better sleep.

“I personally know the benefits of parental massage,” said Licensed Massage Therapist Karla Rice (Lic NVMT6591). “During my second pregnancy I received massage throughout. It was the best pregnancy ever. I didn’t have any back pain. I slept through the night and was able to take nap, which I don’t do because I usually get headache if I do, but through pregnancy I was able to thanks to massage.

“I didn’t suffer swelling or pain. I loved getting massages during pregnancy because it helped reduce any discomfort that I felt during my last months when you’re the most uncomfortable.”

Karla offers pre-natal massage throughout pregnancy after 12 weeks, provided it is not high risk or a doctors note will be required.
