Prenatal Massage

Prenatal massage shares many of the goals of regular massage ­– to relax tense muscles, ease sore spots, improve circulation and mobility, and just make you feel good. But it's also tailored specifically to the needs of pregnant women and their changing bodies, and therapists who are trained in prenatal massage adjust their techniques accordingly.

Carrying a baby inside you changes your center of gravity and puts a lot of stress on your back, neck, abdominal muscles, legs, and shoulders. Pregnancy relaxes your ligaments, making your pelvic joints less stable. Pregnancy also changes your posture, pulling your pelvis forward. Add to that the extra weight you're carrying and you may find you've got an aching lower back.

A trained prenatal massage therapist knows where a pregnant woman's sore spots are likely to be and may be able to provide some relief. (She'll also know which areas and techniques to avoid.) Still, it's important to communicate with her and tell her where you need attention.

Chiropractic is composed of a science, art and philosophy. It was truly the philosophy, that underlying belief in a vitalistic model, that the body is living, full of intelligence, and ultimately self-correcting and healing, that I fell in love with.

After 27 years of practice, I am still amazed at the perceived miracles I witness daily in regards to healing by simply providing the body with the specific nutrients it needs to heal and repair itself. Of course it's not a miracle, it's normal biochemistry.

The way to healing our world begins with healing ourselves; pure body,
clear mind, open heart.
