Preparing for Your Prenatal Massage Visit

Preparing for your self-care visit at Massage Strong is simple! You don’t need to bring anything special with you, and you only need to show up 5 minutes before your appointment time to fill out a few documents. At the time of your appointment, your prenatal massage therapist will lead you to your room and you’ll discuss if there are any areas of discomfort, injuries, or specific muscle tension. It’s important for your massage specialist to understand your areas of pain so that they can take extra care and spend more time focusing on the areas of the most tension.

Your massage specialist will then leave while you undress to your comfort level. While it’s most common to undress to your underwear, you can leave your clothes on should you feel more comfortable. During the massage, you will be covered in a sheet and given private space to dress and undress. 

Our team of prenatal massage specialists in Lexington & Nicholasville understands that many first-timers can feel anxious or nervous about the massage experience. That’s why we work extra hard to create an environment that is not only relaxing but also comfortable for each client that walks in. Our specialists are professional, hospitable, and always available to answer any questions you may have.   

Benefits of Prenatal Massage

Massage therapy benefits include alleviating tension and anxiety from mind and body as a holistic exercise. Pregnancy can cause additional stress outside of what we normally experience in our day-to-day lives. Prenatal massages can help reduce that stress with one-hour sessions at least once a week.

Massage therapy can help release dopamine and improve serotonin levels, both of which help to decrease symptoms of depression that are experienced during pregnancy. Prenatal massage uses nerve and muscle stimulation to elevate these hormones.

Prenatal massage can help regulate hormone levels that can be imbalanced during pregnancy, which encourages mood stability and heart health. This regulation and rebalancing of hormones also help to improve outcomes of labor and ensure a safe and healthy delivery.

Increase in blood flow from the pressure on the muscles from prenatal massage can help reduce the chance of blood clots during pregnancy.

Joint pain, muscle aches, and swelling are the most common side effects of pregnancy. The relief of those side effects is the most beneficial experience of prenatal massage. Massage therapy stimulates muscle tissue to diminish the fluids that create swelling and pain around the joints. Muscle stimulation also helps to relieve headaches often associate with pregnancy and improve sleep.

Prenatal Massage Pricing

Our pricing is guided by our mission, to provide high quality, affordable massage therapy to Lexington & Nicholasville. One of our clients’ experiences expresses our mission perfectly: 

“I do not look at deep tissue massage as a luxury item. It is by far the only route I have taken that has given me such significant relief in my low back pain. I get two 90-minute massages per month, and to me that’s just what I consider my “pain-free” monthly bill. I will gladly pay my pain-free bill each month in order to function fully and feel completely human again.”

Prenatal massage is generally considered safe for all stages of pregnancy, but it’s especially beneficial during the second and third trimesters. However, it is essential to consult with a healthcare provider before starting any massage therapy during pregnancy, particularly if there are any complications or high-risk conditions. Licensed prenatal massage therapists are trained to use techniques that are safe for pregnant women and to avoid pressure points that could induce labor.

The frequency of prenatal massages can vary depending on individual needs and any specific recommendations from a healthcare provider. Generally, a pregnant woman might benefit from a massage every two to four weeks during the second trimester. In the third trimester, as the body experiences more strain and discomfort, more frequent sessions (such as weekly) might be beneficial. Always consult with a healthcare provider to determine the best schedule for your situation.

During a prenatal massage session, the therapist will ensure that you are comfortable and properly supported. Typically, you will lie on your side with pillows or specially designed cushions to support your body. The therapist will use gentle, soothing strokes and avoid deep pressure techniques that could be uncomfortable or unsafe. Communication with the therapist is key; let them know about any discomfort or areas that need special attention. The overall goal is to provide a relaxing and therapeutic experience tailored to your specific needs during pregnancy.

Prenatal massage therapy can help prepare the body for labor by promoting relaxation, reducing stress, and alleviating muscle tension. Some studies suggest that regular massage during pregnancy may reduce labor pain and the duration of labor.

Yes, certain conditions such as high-risk pregnancy, preeclampsia, high blood pressure, severe swelling, and a history of preterm labor may require you to avoid or modify your massage. Always consult your healthcare provider before scheduling a prenatal massage therapy.
