Prenatal Massage

Massage is not a luxury. It’s á way to a healthier, happier, life

What is prenatal massage?

Wellness of expectant mothers is very important! As a new mom-to-be, you would like to be physically, mentally & emotionally ready before the baby arrives. With your body facing so many physical changes with pregnancy, expectant mothers also go through muscle issues due to the extra weight of baby they are carrying. So, prenatal care for expectant mothers is important & massage is one of the most important activities of this care. A prenatal massage provides an amazing experience giving mom-to-be much needed relaxation. This massage focuses the dramatic changes witnessed by a pregnant woman’s body & their special needs.

At Traditional Massage Singapore we understand that only an experienced massage therapist can provide a relaxing & comforting prenatal massage. Our team is trained to provide massages that relieve you of the normal discomforts faced during pregnancy.

When you come to us for prenatal massage, we first ask you about the everyday symptoms you are facing. Right from swelling, back pain & joint pain to muscle tension & headaches, there are several problems you may face at once. Don’t worry! Talk to us without any hesitation. Our therapists can understand what you are experiencing. They combine your symptoms with your health information to decide the right treatment for you. We address a range of issues right from physical to emotional ones. We also ask about any allergies or food sensitivities you are facing during the pregnancy. This ensures we use the right oils & cream for the massage.

At Traditional Massage Singapore, we know that you face a lot of physical changes during pregnancy. Our aim is to provide you some relief with our massage therapy. Our massages help in alleviating pain experienced in muscle joints, improve blood circulation & reduce fluid buildup in feet & legs. Our therapists are trained to provide a nurturing & soothing touch to relieve stress & pressure faced. We know that carrying a child can be emotionally stressful too. We work to help you relieve the emotional stress & tension with our relaxing prenatal massages.

Our therapists know the cautions to be taken while massaging pregnant women. They do not treat the abdomen in the first trimester. Even for the next trimesters, the therapist adjusts her techniques to keep the baby safe. Depending on where you are in your pregnancy, your therapist may utilize such massage techniques as reflexology, Swedish massage or certain techniques that address your specific requests & needs. Our therapists also avoid putting a lot of pressure on the sacrum area & ankles. We will only assign you a therapist who is knowledgeable & experienced with massage during pregnancy.

If you have any questions regarding the qualifications or experience of our therapists, feel free to ask us. We know it is important for you to ascertain that you are in safe hands during this important phase of your life. Schedule a session with Traditional Massage Singapore today.

Benefits of Prenatal Massage

Having a baby is no small feat. Your body is no longer your own, there are 10,023 things to be afraid of, every day is a new adventure, & everyone has a different truth they must impart upon you for the journey. You’re racing heart first into the unknown… AND your baby’s nervous system is forming in response to yours. If massage isn’t yet part of your self-care routine, here are 10 reasons to change that…

  • Relaxation & Stress Reduction – Life changes are inherently stressful! Couple that with hormonal spikes, physical discomfort, sleep loss, and (you name it…) and you quickly lose track of what good feels like. Massage counters all of that by releasing muscle tension – relieving pain, calming the nervous system – decreasing anxiety, & flushing the lymphatic system – increasing immunity.
  • Reduce Pain & Strains – As pregnancy progresses & the uterus grows, the pelvis tends to rotate forward, increasing the lower back curve & stretching the abdominal muscles. Postural adjustments & weight gain both strain the muscles, ligaments & joints, creating fatigue, tightness & pain. Massage therapy techniques are helpful in providing relief on weight-bearing joints – alleviating tightness & pain in areas such as the lower back, hips, pelvis & ankles. Sciatica in the buttocks or legs as well as calf cramps are also commonly associated with pregnancy. Massage techniques & gentle stretching will also help decrease the pain in these areas.
  • Improve Blood Circulation – During the pregnancy all blood components are elevated to provide for fetal needs; by weeks 24 to 34, the plasma volume alone has increased by 40%. Resulting discomfort such as swelling, varicose veins & high blood pressure are common. The greatest change women notice is swollen legs & ankles. Swedish & lymphatic massage support circulatory function, thus reducing swelling. Massage therapy helps provide regular blood flow to the uterus, placenta & fetus, promotes the delivery of oxygen & nutrients, & accelerates the removal of waste products, improving both mother’s and baby’s tissue health.
  • Prepare For Labor – In order to give birth with less effort, the musculature of a woman’s back, abdomen & pelvic floor must remain relaxed to allow the uterus to labor without resistance. Therapeutic massage increases muscle & joint flexibility, a huge benefit for labor & recovery. Receiving bodywork during pregnancy also contributes to self-awareness & relaxation that are necessary to actively participate in the birth process.
  • Improve Respiratory & GI functions – Most expectant women tend to feel short of breath, a result of the growing uterus restricting the diaphragm area. Common digestive system discomforts include indigestion, heartburn, nausea and vomiting. By easing tension in the diaphragm & intercostals (ribcage muscles) we create more space for your organs & baby’s body – so air & food can move for smoothly.
  • Sleep Better – Relaxation is felt when the parasympathetic nervous system turns on, which is also the system that carries us into deep sleep. Relaxation combined with less pain / discomfort make for deeper, longer sleep cycles.
  • Relationship Health – You don’t get a break from pregnancy, so you need a lot of support along the way. Think of it as outsourcing – having multiple sources of support takes pressure off your partner so that you both have more energy for eachother as a couple. And of course, when you’re feeling better, you make better company.
  • Postpartum Recovery – Not only will you have more ease in labor, you will recover faster. Massage increases immunity & blood circulation, which supports all organ function. Regardless of what mode of birth your body goes through, the benefits of therapeutic massage will continue to support you in the recovery process.
  • Making Self-Care a Habit – Many women feel selfish prioritizing self-care, but it’s one of the most important things you can do for your family. Relaxation makes us more available, aids healthy attachment, & decreases emotional reactivity. Habits created before or during pregnancy are much more likely to be carried on than attempting to create them in addition to be a new parent. You (& your partner) are also your child’s first role models, so do for yourself what you’d wish for them.
  • Baby’s Health & Well-Being – Everything that your body goes through, your baby’s body also goes through – pain, pleasure, stress, joy, are all experienced in baby’s developing nervous system. The more you can do to feel good emotionally & physically, the more solid of a neurological foundation baby will have.
