Prenatal Massage in Tucson, AZ

Pregnancy is an exciting time - you’re months, weeks, and days away from a huge life change. Soon enough, you will welcome a little baby into the world and do everything you can to set them up for a successful life. However, the excitement you feel during this period is often overwhelmed by pain and discomfort. If you’re like most women, you can’t wait to meet your little baby not just because they will be your son or daughter but also because it means an end to the discomfort.

With various hormonal and physical changes, every pregnancy is different. Yet, most have one thing in common - that expectant mothers can benefit from prenatal massage therapy. According to modern research, it’s not just the mother who benefits from regular prenatal massaging either. That’s right - your baby can enjoy the experience just as much. 

At this stage, we should say that prenatal massages aren’t recommended in the first trimester because the risk of damage is too high during this sensitive time. During the latter two trimesters, though, both mother and baby can benefit from a pregnancy massage.

What’s a Prenatal Massage Tucson?

While a deep tissue massage is a more forceful style to reach the deeper muscles, a prenatal massage is a gentle approach designed to help both mothers and babies. When you choose a reliable, experienced service like iBalance Wellness Spa, you can be confident that the therapists know how to treat the right areas. They understand the pain points and know how to treat individuals without causing discomfort or other problems. 

While pressure is applied, this is only ever in safe locations. Don’t worry, all Tucson prenatal massage therapists have been trained in this field. They know what they should do, what they shouldn’t do, etc. 

Benefits of a Prenatal Massage in Tucson

As mentioned, research shows that mothers and babies benefit from regular massages. However, what do these benefits entail? Why should you contact the wonderful team at iBalance and book an appointment with a specialist? 

The Power of a Prenatal Massage: Nurturing Mothers and Babies Together

More Controlled Blood Pressure - Typically, a prenatal massage will help to reduce blood pressure. Thanks to the long-lasting effects of the massage, this will continue after the massage too. As you probably know, healthy blood pressure is key for a safe pregnancy and a healthy baby. What’s more, it also helps to prevent varicose veins (or at least keep them to a minimum). 

Safe and Expertly Applied Pressure: Trust in Tucson Prenatal Massage Therapists

Reduced Muscle Tension - Like a normal massage, a Tucson prenatal massage is designed to alleviate tension, and this is especially important for pregnant women. Over the months during pregnancy, you may experience cramping, tension, stiffness, and other discomforts. With reduced tension, you can feel more comfortable on a day-to-day basis (reduced tension can also make labor more comfortable!). 

Alleviated Neck/Back Pain - Do you find yourself constantly grabbing your neck or adjusting your chair because you can’t get comfortable? Sadly, this is another unwanted by-product of pregnancy. With the additional weight, the center of gravity for pregnant women changes - in turn, this leads to problems for the abdomen, back, shoulders, and neck. As the hormones change too, joints are less stable and it can make pregnancy a nightmare for many expectant mothers. 


As you’ve probably guessed, you can alleviate these aches and pains with a prenatal massage. Soon enough, you’ll be walking around with a bit more freedom and a little less discomfort. 

Better Circulation - Unfortunately, not many people appreciate the importance of blood circulation. With good circulation, your body can process waste; the blood and oxygen will also create a positive environment for healing and health. By eliminating waste from your body, you shouldn’t feel as fatigued and you should feel more energized overall. 

Fewer Headaches - Thanks to all the advantages we’ve seen, many pregnant women also notice a difference in the number of headaches they experience with pregnancy massage Tucson

Adjustment to Hormones - As mentioned previously, many of the problems that come during pregnancy are a result of hormonal changes. In some cases, this leads to mood swings, depression, anxiety, and other mental side effects. Research suggests that a massage can reduce stress hormones, and this means an adjustment to how hormones affect the body. The more you’re able to control stress hormones, the less likely you are to experience complications. 

Other Benefits - We’ve taken you through many benefits of prenatal massage therapy, and we’re not even close to the end. You could also enjoy the following:

Postpartum Massage: Restoring and Rejuvenating the Body after Pregnancy

  • Better self-image and self-acceptance during and after pregnancy 

  • Stress relief and relaxation (at a time where you need it the most!) 

  • Lower fatigue and better sleep 

  • Reduced inflammation, edema, and swelling 

  • Less intense labor pain (research suggests a link between massages and less intense labor pain) 

  • Enhanced baby health with more nutrients reaching the little one (not as much research in this field, but a potential benefit nonetheless!)

Even after you give birth to your little bundle of joy, we recommend continuing massage therapy because you will reap all the benefits listed above. Furthermore, you will encourage the body to return to normal even after all the stress it has been through over the past nine months.
