Prenatal Massage

Prenatal massage is important for women, mainly due to how much discomfort and stress accompanies pregnancy. Especially in the later stages of pregnancy, women often struggle to sleep well due to the physical, mental, and emotional changes they are experiencing. They also often feel cramped, bloated, and ill. A trained massage therapist can help a pregnant woman feel markedly better, helping them to sleep better and recover quicker (physically, mentally, and emotionally).

Due to pregnant women’s changing bodies, they often have to find the just-right position when lying down, especially after a certain point in the pregnancy when they can no longer lie flat on their backs or on their stomachs. Matrix Massage’s staff put the utmost emphasis on providing support for pregnant women to guarantee their comfort and safety during massages. We use various implements to help in this task, such as orthopedic body support cushions.

It should be noted that Matrix Massage & Spa emphatically opposes recommendations for the use of pregnancy massage tables, which are massage tables that have a hole cut out of the middle for the woman’s belly to fit. We do train all of our staff to help pregnant women comfortably be positioned on the orthopedic equipment with sideline cushions. It is specifically structured for comfort and safety. Our equipment avoids putting pressure on the client’s breasts, uterus, or lower back, which are often sensitive and not protected by massage tables.

We are experts on pain relief and comfort for pregnant women. We work hard to help our clients work through the stress and strain of pregnancy. Our pregnancy massage therapists are fully trained and will take every step to make sure you are comfortable and taken care of.

Benefits of Pregnancy Massage

Pregnancy massages – ranging from prenatal massages to postpartum massages – confer a number of benefits to both you and your baby. These benefits include:

  1. Increased circulation throughout the body; this not only helps with swelling, but it also helps oxygen better reach your baby
  2. Restful sleep and better breathing
  3. Physical relief, particularly to the back and pelvic area
  4. The process of delivering the baby can be accomplished more quickly and with less pain
  5. Improved ability to deal with emotional issues following delivery, including anxiety and depression
  6. Improved physical health

Pregnancy Massage reduces stress, decreases swelling in the arms and legs, and relieves aches and pains in muscles and joints. It’s a popular therapy during pregnancy for back pain, when choices for pain relief, such as medication, are often limited. Not only can massage be physically beneficial, but the human touch can be comforting and provide emotional support during pregnancy.

We would like you to come try our pregnancy massage services to see if they can help you with the problems you face – we would be happy to help you!

Postpartum Massage

After you have given birth, you can also seek our postpartum massage services, which are designed to help you with physical and emotional recovery following the potentially stressful experience of birth. It can be a great way to reward yourself and make you feel better in general. You’ve certainly earned it!

Massage Therapy FAQ’s

The law always requires that you be appropriately covered with sheets or towels to keep you comfortable and warm. If you start feeling uncomfortable or exposed, speak up. Your therapist will respect your wishes and work with you to make the massage session a comfortable one.
No, only undress as much as you are comfortable with. Some people prefer undressing completely, while others prefer to keep undergarments on. You'll have privacy in your massage room to undress before the session and redress afterwards.
It depends on your massage therapy goals. Some people get a monthly massage to manage stress or to prevent health problems. Others opt for weekly sessions if they need relief from injuries and chronic tension.
Licensing and certification mean that the massage therapist can legally practice massage in your city or state. To get this license, they must have performed several hours of training at an accredited school, past the extensive licensure exam, and have paid any relevant licensing fees.
Every insurance plan works a little differently, so your best bet is to contact your insurer directly. Some plans do cover alternative therapies including chiropractic and massage. You will likely need a doctor's prescription first. If you don't have health insurance, or if it doesn't cover massage therapy, you can find massage therapy coupons and discounts on our site.
How much depends on how pleased you are with the service and how much the massage costs (the full price, not any discounted fees). One easy trick is to think about how you would tip a waiter after a similarly priced restaurant meal. This is often 15-20% or more if you received exceptional service.
Let your massage therapist know before the session if there are areas on your body that you don't want to be touched. They will have the training and experience to give you a therapeutic massage while working around ticklish or sensitive places like your feet or abdomen.
Yes, absolutely. You should always speak up if something is uncomfortable. Secondly, keep the lines of communication open during deep tissue massage or sports injury massages. Your therapist needs the feedback to work on you properly and without aggravating an injury. On the other hand, if you are looking for relaxation, it's often best not to talk unless necessary. This lets your mind as well as your body release tension. With the right mindful breathing technique, you may even achieve a stress relieving meditative state during the massage.
Most likely, unless your doctor says otherwise. Prenatal massage can reduce and relieve common pregnancy issues like lower and upper back pain, sciatic nerve irritation, swelling, tension headaches, heartburn and constipation, and more. Let your massage therapist know that you're pregnant so they can use the right techniques during the session.
