Pregnancy Massage (Feet-free)
Looking for a place that will give you a massage during your pregnancy? Most spas won’t and it’s one of the times you need it the most. Sole Shine, your premier massage studio in St. Louis, LOVES pregnant mamas! In case you’re wondering… no, we do not use feet to massage you if you’re pregnant. We put our amazing training to use with our hands to deliver a deep, therapeutic massage that rivals our barefoot massage.
Pregnancy is such a special time; we love being a part of your process and supporting you in all areas, not just with massage therapy. If you have questions, concerns or just need some advice, we’re here for that too. If one of us at Sole Shine doesn’t know the answer, we have great resources to help point you in the right direction.
We understand that every stage of your pregnancy, through labor and delivery, and even through baby’s first year, can be a wild ride of emotions and physical changes. Our experience with motherhood and Pregnancy Massage has made Sole Shine the trusted choice for moms-to-be.
How Pregnancy Massage Helps
Massage therapy during pregnancy is very beneficial during prenatal care. Sole Shine’s licensed massage therapists have special education and training so they understand the needs and limitations of pregnant women.
Pregnancy Massage relieves many of the common discomforts of being pregnant including backaches, neck pain, leg cramps, headaches, and edema (swelling). Massage reduces stress on weight-bearing joints, encourages blood and lymph circulation, and relaxes nervous tension caused by hormonal changes. It helps with reducing emotional stress, managing emotions and limiting depression, alleviating sore, tense muscles, and improving sleep and energy; ultimately promoting overall wellness. It may even help ease labor; in fact we’ve published a blog about labor initiation that we hope you find informative.
If you can think it, we have seen it or experienced it with our pregnant clients. Our mission is to empower you to honor your choices about your pregnancy, birth, and baby’s first year. We feel it takes a tribe of dedicated, caring people to support you and help you make it through such a tremendous life change. We at Sole Shine are here to be that support; to lift you up in your decisions.
If you are a new client, send us a message or call 314-565-3855, and we’ll get you scheduled. If you are an existing client, schedule your massage now. Congratulations Mom! We look forward to helping you feel healthy and happy during your pregnancy at Sole Shine.
