Pregnancy & Prenatal Massages in Atlanta
Treat Your Feet Buckhead offers prenatal massages in our Atlanta spa. Pregnancy is one of the hardest and gratifying experiences the body can endure. While pregnant, the way the body changes can cause pain, discomfort, and stress. Massages can work wonders on relieving the stress and discomfort that comes with pregnancy. Prenatal massage therapy can often relieve the aches, pains, swelling and stresses associated with pregnancy, and provide you with a rejuvenated body and mind. Pregnancy massage therapy is specifically designed for expectant mothers and their changing body, and often provides the pampering that all who are expecting well deserve.
What is Prenatal Massage?
The prenatal massage is meant for mothers who are finished with the first trimester, and are experiencing stress and discomfort from changes occurring within the body. This massage will help you relax by focusing on the most painful areas of the body.
Although it is recommended to get plenty of rest and relaxation during your pregnancy, its uncommon for most who are expecting to take the time to experience total relaxation. It is important to treat your mind and body to dedicated time away from the ordinary, and sometimes extraordinary, stresses that life and pregnancy can bring. At Treat Your Feet Buckhead in Atlanta, our therapists are experienced in prenatal massage techniques that will help relieve what ails you, foster relaxation, and re-energize you for all that lies ahead.
Our Atlanta prenatal massage therapists will take extra precaution to make sure you are well taken care of and comfortable while receiving your pregnancy massage. We will make sure to find the position most comfortable for you, and can use soft and supportive cushions to alleviate additional strain on the lower back if you experience any discomfort. Depending on how far along you are in your pregnancy, your therapist may use an array of massage techniques to address your specific requests and needs.
If you are pregnant, please consult your doctor first before getting any massage.
Benefits of Pregnancy and Prenatal Massage
Prenatal massage therapy helps to relieve many of the most common physical discomforts of pregnancy. Benefits include:
- Body Aches – Relaxation massage therapy helps to alleviate overall body tension, soothe tired muscles, and increase blood flow to fatigued and bothersome areas
- Back Pain – Often relieved by an array of massage techniques that stimulate the release of serotonin, your body’s natural anti-pain chemical
- Dizziness – Massage therapy has been proven to increase blood circulation which has often been linked to dizziness in the last trimester
- Fatigue – Massage helps to boost circulation and reduce stress to increase energy and combat pregnancy related fatigue
- Headaches – With massage techniques focused on the head, neck and shoulders, many expecting mothers find relief from tension headaches and pregnancy migraines
- Leg Cramps – Massage techniques which are focused on the calves, thighs and lower back will help to prevent and relieve leg cramps
- Stress Reduction – Taking the time to be pampered can decrease stress and increases overall well-being
- Swelling of the Feet – Pregnancy foot massage helps to reduce swelling that occurs from carrying added weight
