Prenatal Massage

Pregnancy is full of physical, mental, emotional and spiritual changes and challenges. Massage is a wonderful way to honour yourself - body, mind and spirit - for the intense work that you are engaged in.

Increased weight and the changes in both your hormones and structural alignment combine with the emotional stresses often experienced during this time to contribute to physical distress and tension. Massage addresses many of the aches and pains experienced during pregnancy and helps to instil a feeling of well-being. Receiving regular massage is preventative, restorative and pleasurable and can help you to prepare your body for labour and birth.

Circulation of both the blood and lymphatic systems is also improved with massage which results in better nutrition and more efficient elimination of toxins for you and the baby, as well as decreased swelling (edema) and varicose veins. Massage can also help you to train your mind and body for one of the most important parts of birth: noticing tight muscles and being able to relax them. Regular massage throughout pregnancy can contribute to a shorter labour and reduce distress, complications and interventions.*

Client Feedback
Thanks Aimee,
Seriously - that leg massage meant that when I got out of bed yesterday morning, I had the least painful feet I've had in three months. One massage - incredible!!!
Eternally grateful!
-Joleen, first-time mother

"I was toward the end of the last trimester of my pregnancy and was feeling the aches from the weight gain, the restricted sleeping positions, and the unusual spring heatwave. I needed a good massage!

The "Mama Bliss" package seemed like a good deal, so I booked it. It was a fantastic decision!

My first two massages were prenatal massages. When I first met Aimée she provided a warm welcome and gently asked me about the specifics of my aches; I could tell that she was really listening and assessing what I said. She didnt just give a standard massage, but worked with what I had told her, and her intuition, giving a wonderful massage that was both relaxing and regenerative. She used techniques that I had never heard of, like wrapping my swollen feet in cool clothes to ease the edema.

She also provided additional recommendations in sleep positions to help ease the pain. Thank you Aimée for the superb massages and advice and I look forward to the remaining sessions now that I have had my son!"
- Jamie, first-time mother

"I've been feeling great since my massage.

It's the first time in quite a while that I've not had back pain; I can even say that I feel comfortable again."
