Prenatal Massage

relax with a prenatal massage treatment

Prenatal massage therapy can help you relax and manage the aches and pain that occur during pregnancy. Our Registered Massage Therapists (RMTs) are trained in prenatal massage and cater to your needs, whether you are dealing with specific aches or if you just need a soothing relaxation massage. 

Prenatal Massage Therapy at Movement Performance & Health

Throughout your prenatal massage treatment, your comfort and health are our number one priority.

We use a special pregnancy massage table which enables you to lay down on your stomach with a net to support your belly, so you feel safe and secure.

If you don’t feel comfortable lying face down, we also offer “side lying” massage where we use pillows to support your legs, head and stomach.

Benefits of prenatal massage

Regular monthly prenatal massages throughout your pregnancy and increasing the frequency to bi-monthly massages as you reach your due date can help:

  • Manage aches and pains such as joint pain, neck and back pain and sciatica
  • Reduces cortisol stress hormones
  • Help relieve insomnia
  • Treat leg cramping and swelling
  • Boost mood and overall relaxation

If you are suffering from severe back pain, increased muscle tension, insomnia or low mood, you may also want to use acupuncture treatments during your pregnancy.  

Is prenatal massage safe?

During the first trimester of pregnancy, we are cautious to offer massage for liability reasons as there is a higher chance of miscarriages. We recommend booking your prenatal massage from your second trimester up to your due date. Our RMTs are trained to address and treat all your pregnancy needs and concerns.
