SKIN MediSpa offers 2 techniques to achieve the ultimate therapeutic experience for pregnant women.
This treatment is especially effective for pregnancy and for anyone with difficulty turning over. Patients lie back on a bed of warm water filled cushions that support the natural position of the spine while heat promotes blissful relaxation. SKIN’s Registered Massage Therapists are able to reach deeply stressed areas without turning the patient over. The warm weightlessness of the water eliminates joint discomfort and allows for deep muscle relaxation.
Many women find it uncomfortable to lie face down even in the very early stages of pregnancy due to their tender, and often swollen, breasts. SKIN MediSpa offers a special pregnancy pillow, designed specifically to accommodate swollen breasts and an expanding belly. This pillow enables our RMT’s to reach even the most difficult areas of stress and provide each patient with optimal relief.
The safest and most effective method of massage will be determined prior to treatment in consultation with your Registered Massage Therapist.
