The Power of Touch - Benefits of Prenatal Massage

Disclaimer: I am speaking through my personal experience as a  mother to be. I am no expert, and I am just sharing my views on how Prenatal Massage Therapy Treatment helped me treat issues I have on my pregnancy.


As a mother to be, I continually experience lower back pain, and fatigue as I carry my little bundle of joy 24/7.  Due to fatigue and lower back pain, it reduces my ability to complete my daily task as fast as I want. I can no longer have a nice long walk with my dog as my feet gets tired very quickly and I need to walk slower as the weight of my growing baby put a strain into my lower back and joints. There are times I feel like my feet, legs, and knees are swollen making it harder for me to move or stand for an extended period. But, don't get me wrong; I am not complaining about how much aches and pain I am experiencing in my first pregnancy, as I know my baby is an answered prayer from God! All I need is to find a way to experience childbearing a little easier as my unborn child grows and gain weight.


My OBGYN prescribed me to have a Prenatal Massage Therapy Treatment, and I started having my Prenatal Massage Therapy Treatment when I was 15 weeks pregnant. I decided to have my Prenatal Massage Therapy at Medical Massage Boutique as they won awards for being one of the top Massage Therapy in Toronto.  After all, I want the best when it comes to my health and the safety of my baby. Not to mention they offer a competitive service fee combined with their staff that makes me feel at home and relax with the complimentary tea they provide to all their clients. Prenatal Massage Therapy Treatment helped ease my lower back pain, fatigue, and swollen lower extremities as the RMT massages my tired, stiff, and swollen muscles due to childbearing. Abigail and Lerma the RMTs located at Medical Massage Boutique has the magic touch to help relaxes my body instantly and takes away the pain I am experiencing. The RMTs at Medical Massage Boutique has the power of touch to reduce my fatigue and swollen lower extremities; which I instantly feel the difference after my treatment. Also, Prenatal Massage reduces my anxiety and stress caused by pregnancy hormones. As the Massage Therapist creates balance and peace in my mind in every stroke of their hands to my muscles that require much-needed care; which, helps me get better sleep at night. Having a regular Prenatal Massage Therapy helps me to improve my lower back, and I can see a significant result in every visit I made. Even my baby loves the Prenatal Massage Treatment, as I noticed every time I get a massage therapy my little peanut moves around a lot enjoying the special treatment with mommy. Therefore, I did a little research about the benefit of having a Prenatal Massage Therapy to the fetus, and I found this blog https://mamaandbabylove.com/prenatal-massage by Mama & Baby Love. According to this blog having a Prenatal Massage Therapy helps blood circulation, bring more oxygen and nutrients to the fetus cells that keep the fetus healthy. No wonder my baby is moving a lot during my Prenatal Massage Therapy because my baby can sense mommy is happy, and he is getting more nourishment in his cells to help him grow healthy. My Baby and I enjoy having Prenatal Massage so much that there are times I want to live in the boutique so that I can get Medical Massage Therapy Treatment all the time! However, I need to go home to walk my dog and be a loving wife to my husband. As a result, Abigail and Lerma give me useful tips on how to reduce pain, stiff, fatigue, and swollen muscles of my body that I can do in the comfort of my home. Having a highly skilled RMT who has years of experience with Prenatal Massage Therapy is very important as they can provide me with a wealth of information that I can take home. Besides, knowing they are highly trained RMTs, I will feel secure that my baby and I are in good hands. Also, they have a pregnancy massage table for ladies who are in their third trimester. If you are looking for great RMTs and you live close to Toronto, I recommend you to book your appointment at Medical Massage Boutique located at 1834 Danforth Avenue or visit their website at http://medicalmassageboutique.ca. Also, you may call them on the phone number located on my picture below.



We work hard to earn our money, so we should spend our money wisely. I believe that having a regular Prenatal Massage Therapy is a significant investment not just for ourselves as the mother to be, but for our growing bundle of joy inside our womb. As we only have one body and as a mother, we want to see our child grow healthy. Remember ladies a happy mom; means a happy baby. So we must take good care of ourselves, and don't let pain rule over our lives. Think positive and imagine how glad you are holding your baby for the first time.



To summarize here are the list of benefits of having a Prenatal Massage Therapy:

- Reduced Edema

- Reduced Fatigue
- Improvement of back pain, and joint pain
- Reduced muscle tension
- Improved blood circulation
- Reduced anxiety and stress
- Enhanced oxygenation of soft tissue and muscles
- Better Sleep
- Helps the fetus grow healthy inside the womb

    I agree. I received a prenatal massage the day after my baby shower and I. WAS. IN. HEAVEN. It was awesome. I slept well that evening, I did not want to get out of the bed.

    Prenatal massages are amazing! When I was pregnant, I kept saying that massage, chiropractic visits and acupuncture were the trifecta of surviving pregnancy.

    I wasn't able to afford massage when I was pregnant, but I get one at least once a month now! I can't live without it!
