What to Expect
Swedish massage is the recommended prenatal massage method during pregnancy as it aims to relax muscle tension and improve lymphatic and blood circulation to the muscle groups of the body as well as addresses many common discomforts associated with the skeletal and circulatory changes brought on by hormone shifts during pregnancy.
At our clinic we use a pregnancy pillow which allows you to lay on your stomach with comfort. If you wish not to lay on your stomach, you will be placed in a side lying position. Pillows are used when side lying to ensure you and your baby are comfortable. The placement of the pillows are as follows; a pillow under your stomach to support your belly and baby, a pillow between your knees so your hips and knees are supported and a pillow placed under your head to support your head and shoulder area.
