Pregnancy is a beautiful time in a woman’s life, but with it comes added strain on a woman’s body.Backaches, neck and shoulder pain, and leg aches are common symptoms that increase throughout pregnancy. In addition, the added weight can leave momma-to-be feeling less than comfortable in herbody.
Studies indicate that receiving massages during pregnancy can reduce anxiety, decrease symptoms of depression, relieve muscle aches and joint pains, as well as improve labor outcomes and newborn health. In addition, Prenatal yoga programs reduce stress, resulting in improved maternal comfort, easier labor, and healthier babies and children, according to a systematic review of existing studies on yoga and pregnancy.
At The Gentle Place, we offer PreNatal Massage, PreNatal Yoga and even couples Workshops to bring more comfort, ease and joy to the journey of pregnancy. Our therapists and teachers are specifically trained in working with the special needs of women during this time, so they are safe, comfortable and at home in their bodies!
