Congratulations! Having a baby is one of life’s most exciting moments. It also comes with a lot of changes to the body. The aches and pains of being pregnant can take a toll on the body and the mind. In particular, hormone changes can cause stress to the mother and baby. Therefore, regular Prenatal Massage is a great addition to your baby preparations. Even the American Pregnancy Association calls prenatal massage “an instrumental ingredient in women’s prenatal care”. Call today and let the talented therapists at MERCI Massage help you enjoy your pregnancy more.
Every massage at MERCI Massage is personalized to fit your needs. At your first session with MERCI Massage, you will fill out a client history form. Next, your therapist will sit with you and discuss what your goals are. Then you will discuss options for how to proceed and your therapist will incorporate multiple techniques into your session to fit your goals. Afterwards, every session will begin with a chat with your therapist to see which techniques could be adjusted. Therefore you will always have the massage that fits you. MERCI Massage has a variety of techniques that can help you feel the best you ever have.
MERCI Massage has certified therapists that can safely perform prenatal massage. Therefore, your therapist will only employ those techniques that are safe for you and the baby. If you are in your first trimester and/or your pregnancy is a high-risk pregnancy, we will need your Doctor’s written permission to proceed with massage therapy. You and your future child are safe in the hands of the talented therapists at MERCI Massage.
I have been a client of Madeleine’s since 2009 and when I got pregnant I continued going once a month through my pregnancy and afterward. She did wonders for all the aches and pains that cropped up as my body changed and took great care to make sure my body was supported throughout the massage, since I eventually could only lay on my sides. Not only did I sleep better, was able to continue working, but I feel that my labor/delivery and recovering were greatly improved by having my monthly massages. I can’t recommend Madeleine and MERCI enough!
I have been a loyal client with Merci Massage for many years, for back and neck pain relief, as well as general muscle soreness and tightness. I was not sure I would be able to continue enjoying my regular massages during my pregnancies, but not only did I continue to receive the back and neck benefits from them, I also got pregnancy aches and pains relieved. I even utilized some acupressure to help motivate labor after my due date to try to achieve as natural a child birth experience as possible. I love Merci Massage and their dedicated therapists!
I have been going to MERCI Massage for many years, and they have always provided outstanding massages, before, during, and after my pregnancy.
