Have you started noticing a few more aches, pains and sore muscles since your body started carrying a new bundle of joy? Don’t fret! At Cosmetic Laser Professionals we have several prenatal certified massage therapists that can relax tense muscles, ease sore spots, improve circulation and mobility, and help you feel your best during pregnancy. Prenatal massages i Miami by a prfoessional are a must to ensure the health of you and your baby.
Our pregnancy massage therapists are certified and trained in pregnancy massage. They offer many different types of massages in Miami because pregnant women have so many different needs. Our clinic offers Deep-tissue, Swedish, Shiatsu, and many other specialized massages.
Prenatal massages can be given at any point in your pregnancy. However, it’s best to check with your healthcare provider and ask for their guidance in the matter. Once your provider gives his/her approval, be sure to set up your appointments for prenatal massages in Miami.
At your first appointment, your prenatal massage therapist in Miami will help you figure out which type of massage position will help you relax and be most comfortable during the massage treatment. Basically, there are three possible positions that women enjoy during massage therapy. These positions include the following:
- A prone/supine position may be used during the first trimester. In this position, you are lying on your stomach or back.
- The side lying position is used for prenatal massages in the second or third trimester. Extra pillows may be used to provide more support for your body.
- An elevated supine positioning may be used during the second trimester and possibly third trimester. You are lying on your back but propped up with additional pillows for support.
Besides finding your perfect massage position, your massage therapist will need to ask questions about any medical conditions or history that might have an impact on your pregnancy. Your therapist will also want to know about any discomforts (such as back or neck pain, sciatica, numb hands) or anything else that seems to be bothering you. The more details you can give your massage therapist about your current health, the more benefits you and your unborn fetus will receive from massage therapy.
One of the most important benefits of massage to the fetus is bonding with massage. Once your therapist shows you how to massage your tummy, you can actually start to touch and play with your baby (around week 13th or 14th of pregnancy) through abdominal massage. Your baby will enjoy feeling your touch while trying to kick your hand.
Another great benefit of massage for the unborn fetus is that it increases blood circulation. The increase in blood circulation provides more oxygen and nutrients to the fetus. Also, it stimulates the lymph system, which in return, increases immunity and removal of toxins.
For the mother-to-be, prenatal massage has numerous benefits. These benefits include the following:
- Stabilizes hormonal levels
- Alleviates stress on weight- bearing joints
- Soothes and relaxes nervous system
- Reduces pain and strains
- Improves respiratory and GI functions
