"Emma has an exceptional knowledge of anatomy in her practice as both a massage therapist and doula. She is compassionate and thoughtful and a font of knowledge. A deeply skilled massage therapist, she is also a pleasure to talk to, and her studio is bright and welcoming." ~ Amaranth ~ Seattle Pregnancy Massage client
Seattle Pregnancy Massage offers you several options in pregnancy for relaxing both body and mind and preparing your body for labor.
Full-Body Prenatal Massages
$110 - $140
Seattle Pregnancy Massage offers 60 or 75 minute full body Swedish massage for pregnant and postpartum people in our Ballard studio.
The changes in the body that pregnancy brings as muscles and ligaments stretch and babies grow can put a lot of strain on the body. Muscles in the shoulders tighten, resulting in swelling in the hands and arms and pain in the neck and shoulders. The weight of the growing baby pulls the spine forwards causing pain in the lower back and hips and the shifting pelvis causes swelling and tightness in the legs and feet.
Regular massage from a practitioner specially trained in prenatal massage and the physiology of pregnancy can make all the difference.
The benefits of prenatal massage can include:
Prenatal Massage & Reflexology
Belly & Baby Massage
Spend a relaxing 60 minutes tuning in to your body and your baby. This highly individualized session is designed to help you connect with your baby and your body, while allowing tight ligaments and muscles of the abdomen and lower back to unwind and relax. It can be especially helpful if you have pelvic or low back pain, if your baby haas been hanging out in one position for most of your pregnancy or if you'd jus like an opportunity to really slow down and tune in to the changes happening in your body.
A shorter half hour belly massage can also be added to any 60 minute session for the ultimate in relaxation for you and your baby.
Full Body & Belly Massage Experience
7 Weeks to a Better Birth
Our Specialized Pillow System
After the first trimester, laying on your stomach or back becomes uncomfortable. Some massage therapists get around this by using bed pillows to position a client on their side or by using a table that has a cut out for the pregnant belly. This kind of table is not ideal as laying on your front can put strain on the uterine ligaments.
Seattle Pregnancy Massage utilizes the Oakworks Side Liying Positioning System to safely and comfortably allow our clients to lay on their side. The cushions are specially contoured to the body to provide ergonomically correct support to each part of your body. No more pillows falling off the table during a massage. Our clients like it so much they wish they could take it home to help them sleep!
