In today's day and age, many women feel pressured to perform. Just taking a moment to relax feels wrong somehow. You're at work full time, your social life demands your attention, and just when you think you're done it's time to go (belly) bootcamping down the park. That pressure can cause stress.
During your pregnancy it's important to keep your stress levels as low as possible. That's better for both you and your baby. Stress has recently been found to be as bad for you as smoking, so booking regular prenatal massage sessions should make sense, right?
Of course, at Arigato, we provide a specialized prenatal massage table, so you can relax belly down.
Prenatal massage therapy sessions are the perfect 'me-time' activity. Yet, they are also highly effective when dealing with:
- Morning sickness
- Extreme fatique
- Sore muscles or knots
- Lower back or pelvis issues
- Water retention and swelling
- Need for 'ME time'
We understand that although your body may not lose its strength, pregnancy changes a lot in and about your body. That is why Arigato tailors your prenatal massage session to suit your needs. Every treatment is customized: we take care to discuss your personal situation beforehand.
Prenatal massage therapy sessions at Arigato are recommended by trade journals and professionals alike. One example is a personal recommendation by Carita Salome (www.caritasalome.nl). We couldn't be prouder! If you are not familiar with her work, we highly recommend looking her up.
Please note that prenatal massage therapy is not covered by insurance.
