Congratulations! You’ve got a bun in the oven. When you discover you’re pregnant, a swirl of emotions can be experienced in a short amount of time. There’s excitement, anxiety, joy, and maybe even a little nausea. No matter how you feel when you find out you’re pregnant, it can be easy to feel less than thrilled with the side-effects. A pregnant body goes through many changes in a very short amount of time, and here at Lotus 5 Senses Spa, we want to minimize the discomfort that you might be experiencing with our prenatal massage.
The benefits of massage are great for anyone, but especially for pregnant women who might not feel comfortable in their own bodies any longer. Pregnancy puts a lot of strain on parts of the body where there may not have been soreness before. Areas like the back, shoulders, legs and feet can be particularly tender for pregnant women, especially those nearer to their due date. Pregnancy can also throw a woman’s posture out of whack, causing lower back pain. Our prenatal massage is specially designed to target these areas, so you can feel more comfortable and relaxed, no matter what stage of pregnancy you’re in.
Prenatal massages are performed a little differently than traditional massages, since there obviously won’t be any lying directly on the back or on the belly. We might ask the client to lay on their side or use cushions to help them sit comfortably in more of an inclined position, depending on what feels most comfortable for the client.
Prenatal massage can ease tension and anxiety, reduce soreness of the muscles and joints, and help give any mom-to-be a boost of energy. Schedule one today in Winston-Salem, North Carolina!
