Why choose a prenatal massage?

Why choose a prenatal massage?

If you are having your first child or your 10th, pregnancy is a physical experience unlike any other. A prenatal massage can ease physical challenges leaving you feeling comfortable in your own skin again.

At South Philly Wellness we offer prenatal massage from the moment of conception through 43 weeks. We work with pregnant women and trans-men of any age. If massage had been part of your lifestyle pre-pregnancy we encourage you to continue receiving without changes in frequency.

During pregnancy simple things like laying down comfortably can seem nearly impossible.

The side lying cushion system used at SPW effectively supports any body type throughout the entire pregnancy. Once settled onto the cushions breathing is easier and sighs of relief begin rolling in.

Prenatal Massage can address :

Aches and pain throughout the body. Focus is often on upper back, shoulders, low back, hips, sciatica, headaches, shortness of breath, leg swelling and muscle cramping.


Benefits of prenatal massage include:

Reduced stress and anxiety

Reduced back pain

Reduced joint pain

Improved circulation

Reduced edema

Reduced muscle tension and headaches

Improved oxygenation of soft tissues and muscles

Better quality sleep
