Prenatal Massage provided by a Registered Massage Therapist at Bronte Wellness is very similar to a regular RMT massage. The biggest difference is the position in which you lay on the massage table as your belly grows. Modifications may be necessary if there are any complications during the pregnancy. Most often by the time you reach the second trimester, you’ll no longer be able to comfortably lay on your stomach. The therapist will have you position yourself on your side. You’ll still be covered by a sheet and blanket and the therapist will take care to only uncover the areas they are working on while each area is being worked on. Oil or lotion will be applied to the skin to provide proper glide as the RMT massages any area’s of discomfort.
Most often the biggest complaints during pregnancy are mid to low back pain, hip and gluteal discomfort and achy swollen feet and legs. However, every woman is different and every pregnancy is different and so while some women prefer a full body massage others enjoy a more focused treatment on the areas that are bothering them most. Here at Bronte Wellness Boutique, our all female team of experienced Registered Massage Therapist’s are trained in Prenatal Massage. We pride ourselves in addressing your unique needs and we are happy to tailor you prenatal Massage Treatment just for you.
