Mothers-to-be are embarking on a remarkable journey of transformation as they nurture and create new life within their bodies. At Bliss Therapy, we understand the unique needs of expectant mothers and are dedicated to providing nurturing care during this special time. Our prenatal massage services offer numerous benefits, not only for the well-being of both mom and baby but also as a way to indulge in self-care.
During a prenatal massage, we focus on supporting circulation and increasing blood flow throughout the body. This helps to alleviate muscle aches, joint pains, and common discomforts associated with pregnancy. Our skilled therapists utilize gentle and effective techniques to reduce stress, promote relaxation, and support better sleep patterns. By addressing these concerns, prenatal massage can contribute to improved labor outcomes and overall well-being for both mom and baby.
To ensure your utmost comfort during the massage, we offer side-lying positions with strategically placed pillows that provide optimal support for your body's changing needs. Additionally, we have the Earthlite Prone Pregnancy Cushion, which allows for safe and comfortable face-down positioning. With these options, you can rest assured that you will be fully supported throughout the session, creating a blissful and relaxing experience. Additionally, for expectant mothers who are not showing yet and feel at ease lying on their stomach, you have the option to request a facedown position, similar to a traditional massage, during your prenatal massage session.
At Bliss Therapy, your safety and well-being are our top priorities. We adhere to the highest standards of care and utilize the safest methods to provide consistent, top-quality services. Our therapists are trained in prenatal massage techniques and have a deep understanding of the specific considerations and precautions necessary to ensure a safe and beneficial experience for expectant mothers.
