Postpartum Massage Therapy
A postpartum massage is designed for new mothers who have recently given birth to help relieve pain and soreness and soothe and relax the body and the mind. In fact, postpartum massage has been used for thousands of years as a way to alleviate many symptoms brought on after childbirth, such as chronic tension and pain, fatigue, swelling, and stress. This service also promotes better sleep, improved circulation, and reduction of toxins and excess fluids in the body.
An Inner Rhythm’s postpartum massage is an excellent way to support not just the physical well-being of a new mother but also their emotional and mental bodies as well. We utilize techniques to unravel deeply-rooted muscular congestion, trigger points, and release of myofascial tissue for added benefits.
When to Get a Postpartum Massage After Delivery
You know your body better than anyone else! Therefore, when to get a postpartum massage, our best recommendation is to wait until you feel you are comfortable and ready. This is why Inner Rhythms offers in-home massage during the fourth trimester. An intentional and gentle massage will increase circulation to promote healing. Complete recovery after giving birth is typically between six to eight weeks, whether you have had a cesarean section or a vaginal delivery. If you have any doubt or worry speak with your health care provider before scheduling a postpartum massage.
