The difference between a prenatal massage and a Swedish massage
Prenatal massage is a specific type of massage tailored to help relieve the strains and pains caused by pregnancy. Usually, the massage focuses on the areas of the body that are most affected by pregnancy. This includes the lower back, the mid-back, shoulders, neck, calves, feet, and even the stomach. The registered massage therapist will have your comfort in mind every step of the way in their approach. With use of pillows to support you so you can lie down safely and comfortably on your side throughout your massage. You can expect the massage pressure to be softer and gentler, using long and slow strokes and kneading movements in tense areas.
With our customised approach our registered massage therapists will provide mom and baby ultimate relaxation, having you feel aligned and pain free.
