Prenatal Cushion in Carbondale IL

We offer Prenatal Massages in Carbondale with specially designed equipment that makes it safer for the mother and baby. Our pregnancy cushion allows the mother to safely lie on her stomach, as opposed to “ side lying” to comfortably enjoy the massage. Many clinics in the area do not have the latest equipment we have which separates us from the rest.

Benefits of Prenatal Massages in Carbondale

Studies indicate that massage therapy during pregnancy reduces anxiety for the mother and baby and helps the mother deliver easier. PreNatal massage also relieves stress, headaches, sciatica, and low back pain that comes with pregnancy and  helps deliver more oxygen and nutrients to both mom and baby.

Other side effects of pregnancy include edema, or swelling of the joints and legs often caused by reduced circulation and increased pressure on major blood vessels by the heavy uterus. Sciatic nerve pain or “Sciatica” may also occur in many women during the late stages of their pregnancy as the uterus rests on muscles of the pelvic floor and puts pressure on the large nerve that runs down the back of the buttock, leg, and to the foot at times. Muscle tension to the muscles of upper, mid, or lower back including the upper and lower legs may occur for which massage helps to relieve.

Expecting mothers after receiving care often report that she and the baby experience a more restful sleep. It is important to note that women can begin massage therapy at any point in their pregnancy. At Thalman Chiropractic in Carbondale, we always recommend, that you always consult your obstetrician before beginning any new therapeutic therapy.
