Our prenatal massage focuses on the special needs of the ever-changing body during pregnancy. Our therapists consider both the current needs of an expecting mother as well as the changes and issues that can be expected throughout a pregnancy. This is a gentle massage, using techniques similar to our Nurturing Therapeutic Massage . Our therapists are careful of how to position you safely and prevent strain to the uterine ligaments. They are also able to watch for symptoms of blood clots and varicose veins.
In addition to the physical impact of prenatal massage, our treatment gives you emotional support and nurturing, provided by nonsexual human touch and energy.
Speak with your primary health care provider prior to receiving a massage if you have what is considered a high-risk pregnancy, if you had a previous pre-term labor, if you recently gave birth, or if you recently experienced: bleeding, pre-term contractions, preeclampsia, pregnancy-induced hypertension (PIH), severe swelling, high blood pressure, or sudden, severe headaches.
Gently compliments prenatal care & relieves mental & physical fatigue
"I booked a massage solely based on the Yelp reviews, and they did not mislead me. Pete did a wonderful job of kicking my body into relaxation-mode while on vacation. I left there on cloud 9 and felt energized yet sooo relaxed. One of the top 5 massages I've EVER had. I will definitely be back if we're in Santa Fe again."
