Prenatal & Perinatal Massage

At Vital Connections Massage & Bodwork, we understand that pregnancy is a special time in a woman's life, filled with heightened awareness and expectation, and accompanied by dramatic physical, physiological, and emotional changes.  Prenatal Massage and Perinatal Massage address the specific physical and emotional needs of a woman during pregnancy, from pre-conception through pregnancy and post-partum. 

Our massage therapist Danielle uses Prenatal and Perinatal massage techniques to meet a range of goals such as: promoting fertility during pre-conception, reducing stress and tension, allowing mother-baby bonding time, and addressing physical changes experienced by pregnant and post-partum woman. 

Taking excellent care of your health during pregnancy confers innumerable benefits to both you and your baby.  Prenatal massage offers a wide range of benefits to mom and baby, including the following:

  • Eases backaches, headaches, joint pain, shoulder and neck aches
  • Decreases feelings of anxiety and stress 
  • Reduces fatigue
  • Improves mood
  • Increases mother/baby bonding
