Aliyah Prenatal Massage Therapy is the use of Aliyah Massage Therapy techniques to support the physiologic, structural, and emotional well-being of both mother and fetus throughout pregnancy. Aliyah Massage Therapists are armed to treat any condition or issue that may arise during gestation, focusing on ultimate comfort to mother and child.
Prenatal Massage Therapy treatments are a great way to support the body as it adjusts to the changes that occur during pregnancy.
During pregnancy, a woman’s body will undergo a myriad of changes as it prepares for the birthing process. The joint spaces between the bones separate as the ligaments and connective tissue in the body begin to relax. This can lead to skeletal instability, overly tight muscles and potential pain during movement.
One common occurrence is a build-up of pressure on the sides of the hips along the sciatic nerve which will affect movement and sensitivity down the leg.
As the baby develops in the womb and shifts around its’ amniotic nest, pressure and tension amount along the circulatory and neurological passages causing pain, stiffness and potential digestive dilemmas.
An Aliyah Prenatal Massage is paramount to a comfortable, healthy gestation period as well as a smooth birthing process. Studies have shown that pregnancy massage helps improve mood, decrease swelling, ease pain, decrease depression & anxiety, as well as increase relaxation.
All of the Aliyah Massage Therapists are thoroughly trained in pregnancy massage and will modify treatment techniques and positioning depending on the presenting trimester and comfort levels. Our Aliyah therapists focus on meeting the therapeutic needs of the client as she goes through the physical and emotional changes related to pregnancy. Some of our Aliyah Massage Therapists have trained in high-risk pregnancy situations in Ontario hospitals where the massage therapist was part of the labour team.
Aliyah Massage Therapy is also greatly beneficial in the post-partum period for both mother and baby. We can teach the mother how to treat her newborn baby for digestive issues, infantile colic, and other infancy disorders.
