Pre/Peri/Post Natal Massage
Natal just refers to Pregnancy. This type of massage can essentially be thought of as a combination of Relaxation Massage and Therapeutic Massage that accommodates the special needs of a woman who is pregnant (All nine months of it!), in labor, or in the year or two after having given birth. Although I have specific training for this treatment, as traditional massage, I can also treat using Myoskeletal Alignment Therapy (Extended)™ - MAT(E)™ - techniques, even on the table.
Before, during, and after childbirth, a woman's body undergoes many physical and hormonal changes. Headaches, joint aches, edema, foot/back and other pain, and muscle tightness, are among the many conditions treated. Diastasis Recti (split abdomen) can be prevented or reduced, or helped to heal after the fact. It is possible to accustom baby to touch, and to allow delivery to be easier. Where most massage modalities are given in the flat prone and supine positions (lying on the back and abdomen), Pregnancy Massage is often given in side-lying and partially propped positions, using bolsters, regular and special pillows, and more.
