Prenatal Treatment

ShangHai Chinese Medicine Method

Pregnancy or Prenatal Treatment can be very gentle while still being effective. Firm pressure massage is also okay in pregnancy. Deep tissue, trigger point work, hot stones and cupping are not allowed in pregnancy but firm pressure can be applied to most areas during a prenatal massage allowing for the serious relief that mamas need. There’s many benefits for the mother, such as increasing energy, easing aches and pains, reducing fluid retention and releasing stress.
During pregnancy a woman’s body releases a hormone called Relaxin. This hormone’s job is to soften the bones, tendons and ligaments to make room for a growing baby and ultimately a successful labor & delivery. Massage during pregnancy helps to move that Relaxin all over the body leaving your muscles feeling loose and you feeling very relaxed and happy
