Pregnancy Massage Therapist
Aimee Hodge LMT, License# MA59701
Hi! Always interested in massage I knew it was the career for me. I was trained primarily in swedish massage. I began my career working alongside chiropractors in medical massage but then decided to switch to the relaxing environment of Angelic Gardens. Trained & certified by Elaine Stillerman, author and creator of the Mothermassage®: massage during pregnancy program. Whether trying to get pregnant, already expectant, or recently welcomed your bundle of joy, I am here to treat your aches & pains while giving you a relaxing experience.
Safe, comfortable and effective massage sessions are my specialty! I’m happy to answer any questions or address any concerns prior to your appointment. Feel free to call and ask for Aimee!
A wonderful treatment for the mother-to-be! This massage shares many of the goals of regular massage such as relaxation, increase in mobility, relief from sore muscles and joints, and a general feeling of well-being. Pregnancy massage is also specifically tailored to the unique needs of the pregnant woman and her changing body. Carrying a baby inside you changes your center of gravity and puts a lot of stress on your back neck, abdominal muscles’s, and shoulders. Pregnancy chemical also relaxes your ligaments, so that your pelvic joints are less stable, and changes your posture, pulling your pelvis forward. Add to that the extra weight you are carrying and you may find you have got an aching lower back and feet.
A trained prenatal massage therapist knows where a pregnant woman’s sore spots are likely to be and may be able to provide some relief. (she will know which areas and techniques to avoid) still, it is important to communicate with with therapist and tell her where you need attention. Let her know right away if anything during the massage-including your positioning – is causing you any discomfort.
Some of the specific benefits of pregnancy massage can include:
- Relief of muscular tension, especially in low back, upper back, shoulders, neck, and feet
- Reduction of stress on weight-being joints
- Improved body awareness, including body mechanics and movements during structural changes
- Reduced anxiety and stress during time of transition
- Increased ease in breathing due to relaxation of muscles involved in respiration
- Preparation of muscles used during childbirth
- Reduced swelling of hands and feet
- Reduced sciatic pain and leg cramps
- Emotional support and nurturing
- Improved sleep
During the second and third trimesters many women choose to have massage every two weeks or monthly, to provides regular comfort and support as your body changes. We offer package pricing if you would like to receive massage regularly during your pregnancy.
