Essential Oil Protocol during your massage will be addressed. If there are scents that you do not appreciate while pregnant, we will not use and will be noted on your Personal Profile. In general, the following oils will be avoided:
Clary Sage, Basil, Cinnamon, Cedarwood, Hyssop, Blue Tansy, Fennel, Peppermint and Wintergreen.
Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade essential oils, along with fractionated coconut oil, during pre and postnatal massage sessions are used based on preferences and need. Lavender relieves nausea, headaches, and constipation. Neroli and Ylang Ylang help reduce the appearance of stretch marks.
During each trimester, you will not only feel pampered but receive physical benefits during pregnancy.
- 1st Trimester Benefits include headache relief, alleviate morning sickness, emotional support, and reduce fatigue.
Headaches during pregnancy are often to poor posture and tension from carrying extra weight. Skilled pregnancy massage alleviates muscular strains that cause these issues.
- 2nd Trimester Benefits include alleviating backaches, postural imbalance, improved breathing, and legs cramping.
Helps alleviate prenatal depression, improves overall mood, and aids in general relaxation of mother and improves oxygen levels to baby.
- 3rd Trimester Benefits include reduction in swelling, joint pain, digestive issues, and enhance sleep.
During 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 and high(er) blood pressure, which are common. The greatest change women notice is swollen legs and ankles. Prenatal and lymphatic massage support circulatory function, thus reducing swelling in legs, hands, feet.
Postnatal Massage allows for healing and recovery after birth. Whether you experienced a c-section or natural childbirth, postnatal bodywork will help increase circulation to vital muscle tissues, and relieve tension throughout the body.
Sherry: I just wanted to let you know how wonderful it was to have your prenatal massages during my rough pregnancy. No matter how hard my weeks were, your prenatal massages always helped me feel better. I will be sure to recommend you to all of my friends. Thank you again!! Esra O.
I believe that if it wasn’t for my pregnancy massage during my labor with my daughter; it wouldn’t have gone as smoothly as it did. The message put me in a relaxed state where I could get some rest and complete my labor without any drugs. I highly recommend Sherry Weldon and her professionalism! Jessica W.
