Massage during pregnancy, labour, and postpartum has a long and honourable tradition. Massage is one of the safest and most effective ways to reduce tension, stress, and anxiety. Additional benefits of prenatal massage include decreasing chronic muscle tension, increasing venous and lymphatic circulation, reducing swelling, normalizing blood pressure, headaches and fostering deep breathing. Massage supports the dynamic physical and emotional changes of pregnancy.
Advanced prenatal massage training provides Jeff with a deeper understanding of all aspects of pregnancy. Helping to relieve discomfort and provide emotional support while also providing information and guidance to both mother and father.
Along with Massage Therapy, Acupuncture and Therapeutic Taping can provide comfort and symptom relief during pregnancy.
Please contact Jeff directly to discuss pre/post natal massage support or infant massage.
Cupping is used to decrease stagnation(increase circulation). Personally I use it most often over a tight IT band as it can offer relief with less pain. Cupping can be added as part of other treatments at your request free of charge.
