Prenatal Massage

Massage therapy during pregnancy is a wonderful complementary choice for prenatal care. For a lot of women, pregnancy is a time in their lives filled with highs and lows. With the joy and excitement of motherhood approaching, there can also be physical and mental strain on the body. Massage is a healthy way to reduce stress and promote wellness during. Massage can relieve many of the normal discomforts experienced during pregnancy. This can include backaches, stiff neck, leg cramps, headaches and swelling.

Benefits of prenatal massage

  • Increases blood circulation, which provides more oxygen and nutrients to both mother and fetus
  • Soothes and relaxes the nervous system by releasing endorphins into the mother’s body.
  • Reduces stress on weight-bearing joints and encourages blood and lymph circulation
  • Offers a natural, safe, and drug-free alternative choice for pain relief
  • Helps to relax nervous tension, which aids in better sleep-and can help relieve depression or anxiety caused by hormonal changes.

What to expect

During a prenatal massage we adapt for the anatomical changes as you go through your pregnancy.  As your shape and posture changes, a trained massage therapist will make accommodations with special cushioning systems or holes that allow you to lie face down safely, while providing room for your growing belly and breasts. Or you might lie on your side with the support of pillows and cushions. Long, slow strokes and kneading movements in tense areas will be used, with special attention paid to the lower back, hips, and legs. If your aching in a particular area let your massage therapist know, they should be able to focus on a particular area if it’s bothering you similarly to a normal massage and be able to give you the full body experience.

WOW. That’s all I can say. I was absolutely blown away with their services here! First time receiving a prenatal massage, and I was taken care of... from the moment I walked in to the second I walked out. They do fantastic work here, and honestly, one of the best massages I’ve EVER received. Nia knew exactly how to treat my pregnancy pains and made the experience so relaxing and comfortable. They also billed directly to my insurance which took the headache out of submitting a claim. If I am ever back in Calgary, Mama massage will be the first and the last stop of my trip. Thank you for making this experience so wonderful and memorable!read more

This place is the best! The ambiance is more spa-like than clinical and very comfortable and clean. I have had great experiences with many of the... massage therapists, but I want to give a HUGE shoutout to Sonia Deleo. Sonia is by far the best RMT I have ever seen and uses incredible strength and technique. I recommend everyone sees Sonia to have a life-changing appointment!read more
