Pre Natal Thai Massage
We at Lamai Thai Massage Therapy regard pregnancy as the start of a joyous and incredible journey, and we want everyone involved to enjoy this journey to its fullest.
However, with pregnancy come many changes and challenges to the expectant mother. Weight gain, a displacement in your center of gravity (causing stress on your back, neck, abdominal muscles and shoulders), and inflammation of the joints (edema) often caused by reduced circulation are just some of the discomforts facing expectant moms.
Thai massage therapy offers a non-medicated alternative in addressing these concerns.
Pregnant women have often received ambivalent responses from the health community regarding the safety and purpose of massage during pregnancy. Modern investigation and research (most notably by the Touch Research Institute at the University of Miami and others) is proving that prenatal massage therapy can be a very instrumental ingredient in women’s prenatal care and should be given careful consideration.
Therapeutic massage has been used for centuries to improve overall health, reduce stress, and relieve muscle tension. Thai massage dates from the era of the Buddha, 2500 years ago, and is now gaining widespread popularity here in the West, not only as a preventative modality, but also to increase the comfort level (and lower the stress level) during pregnancy.
At Lamai, we have customized our traditional Thai massage so that our pregnant customers can realize its benefits.
Those benefits include:
• Reduced back pain
• Reduced joint pain
• Improved circulation
• Reduced edema
• Reduced muscle tension and headaches
• Reduced stress and anxiety
• Improved oxygenation of soft tissues and muscles
