Pregnancy is a joyous experience for most expectant mothers, but for some, the drastic changes to their body may cause pain and discomfort. Northern Hills Chiropractic offers Prenatal Massage Therapy, here at our North Calgary Wellness Clinic to help relax tense muscles, ease sore spots, improve circulation and increase mobility to help you feel better during your pregnancy.
Carrying a baby for nine months has a great impact on your musculoskeletal system because of the weight of your growing baby changes your center of gravity. There is extra stress on your upper and lower back, neck, your abdominal muscles, and shoulders. Pregnancy hormones also relax your ligaments causing your pelvic joints to become less stable and by pulling your pelvis forward. This often creates chronic and acute lower back and hip pain. Studies also suggest that prenatal massage therapy may reduce anxiety and decrease symptoms of depression in addition to relieving muscle aches and joint pain. Northern Hills Chiropractic recommends Prenatal Massage Therapy to help expectant mothers:
The Massage Therapists at Northern Hills are trained to address and treat expectant mothers. Your initial appointment is used to gather information about your current health and how it relates to your pregnancy. We will tailor your Prenatal Massage Therapy to allow for optimum comfort and safety during your appointment. Your Licensed Massage Therapist will identify the areas where you have sore spots and will use gentle, non-invasive techniques to provide you with relief.
We want your pregnancy to be an enjoyable experience. If you are suffering from any of the above symptoms, we invite you to contact our office to learn more about how Prenatal Massage Therapy can help you.
