While expecting mommies are looking forward to the many joys of motherhood, their ever-changing bodies are experiencing many changes along the way as well. Unfortunately, your growing baby bump affects your center of gravity and can bring a lot of added stress, both mentally and physically. If you’re a mommy-to-be and in need of some “me” time, The Spa offers a wonderful service for helping relieve this discomfort.. The prenatal massage!
Did you know a prenatal massage at The Spa can greatly improve overall prenatal health for many woman? Studies indicate that prenatal massages can reduce anxiety, relieve muscle aches and joint pains, improve labor outcomes and newborn health. Some women even experience a reduction of swelling, deeper and longer sleep patterns, hormone regulation and improvement of nerve pain.
While expecting mothers are not able to lie on their bellies, the standard positioning for a prenatal massage is side lying. All of our providers are professionally trained for prenatal massages to be preformed this way.
However, here at The Spa, we are one of the only places in Orlando to offer a new, innovative and completely safe way to receive a prenatal massage! Designed for comfort and your baby’s safety, your prenatal massage can be performed on a special bolster with hollowed out areas and custom pillows to accommodate your expanding belly. This allows our guests to lie facing down safely without applying pressure on their stomach.
Of course, before the prenatal massage begins, we encourage our guests to try out our bolster first and then they can decide which position will be the most comfortable for them. Our professional therapists are trained to tailor specifically to the needs of pregnant women and their changing bodies. It’s a wonderfully soothing massage experience designed for your complete relaxation during this special time in your life. What better way for expecting mothers to wind down while improving their pregnancy at the same time?
While booking your appointment for your next prenatal massage, keep in mind that The Spa also offers other services that may be extremely helpful for expecting mommies. The further along you are in your pregnancy, the more you will discover that some areas on your body are becoming just simply hard to reach! Try our delightful Signature Pedicure or even a waxing service to help keep you feeling refreshed and beautiful!
