Pregnancy is an amazing time in a woman’s life, but it can also be a difficult one. Many women experience aches and pains as their bodies change and grow to accommodate their growing baby.

At CC Massage Therapy, we offer a variety of massage treatments that are specifically designed for pregnant women. Our team of RMTs are highly trained and experienced in working with pregnant women, and they will work to ensure that you are comfortable and safe throughout your massage.
What is a Prenatal Massage?
A prenatal massage is a massage that is specifically designed for pregnant women. This form of massage focuses on alleviating the aches and pains that are common during pregnancy, such as back pain, headaches, neck pain, and leg cramps.
During a traditional massage, you would spend time face-up, and face-down, however, during pregnancy, this can be dangerous for both you and your baby. A trained prenatal massage therapist will use specialized techniques and pillows to help you remain safe and comfortable during your massage.
Prenatal massage can be an excellent way to reduce stress and promote relaxation during pregnancy. It can also help to reduce swelling, improve circulation, and ease muscle tension.

Benefits of Prenatal Massage:
Studies on the benefits of prenatal massage have shown that it can:
- Lower anxiety
- Decrease leg and back pain
- Improve sleep
- Decrease levels of norepinephrine (a stress hormone)
In an additional study on depressed women who received pregnancy massages, researchers found:
- Increased levels of serotonin and dopamine (‘feel-good’ hormones)
- Improvement in mood
- Decreased cortisol levels (a stress hormone)
Benefits may extend to the baby as well, with some preliminary evidence that babies of mothers who received massages during pregnancy cried less and were more content. However, more research needs to be done.
After you have given birth, your body is going through a lot of changes. It is important to give yourself time to recover and heal before jumping back into your normal routine. Massage can be an excellent way to help your body recover after pregnancy and childbirth.
In many cases, post-partum depression can set in after the baby is born. Massage has been shown to be an effective treatment for post-partum depression, by lowering cortisol levels and boosting feel-good hormones such as serotonin and dopamine.
