The Spa of the Rockies in Glenwood Springs understands the special needs of pregnant women. While the physical changes that accompany pregnancy are miraculous and awe-inspiring, pregnancy side effects can cause discomforts that range from mild headaches to severe lower back pain. The Spa of the Rockies Prenatal Massage allows expectant moms to alleviate aches and relax.

Prenatal massage can reduce back and joint pain associated with pregnancy

Pregnant women come to the Spa of the Rockies for relief of all sorts of pregnancy-related symptoms, the most common is lower back pain, but also swelling of the joints, headaches, sciatica and fatigue.

For nine months, moms-to-be are busy taking care of a rapidly growing baby – being mindful to eat right, exercise and follow doctor’s orders, but sometimes expectant mothers need some time and attention for themselves. The Spa of the Rockies offers this special clientele a unique massage experience designed specifically to meet the needs of women experiencing the sudden changes of pregnancy.

According to Spa Director, Avalon Lionheart, “Pregnant women come to the Spa of the Rockies for relief of all sorts of pregnancy-related symptoms, the most common is lower back pain, but also swelling of the joints, headaches, sciatica and fatigue.”

The Spa of the Rockies Prenatal Massage is a natural, touch therapy that helps alleviate these symptoms as well as balance hormones, reduce anxiety, encourage deep breathing, and improve circulation. Every effort is made to help expectant moms feel comfortable at the Spa of the Rockies. A special pregnancy pillow is used that accommodates round bellies of all sizes and allows women to lie comfortably on their stomachs. Therapists choose unscented oils for the massage because pregnant women tend to be more sensitive to scents.

Experienced Spa of the Rockies prenatal certified therapists, like Lori Dietl, help moms relax physically and mentally. “Pregnant women have a lot on their minds as well as dealing with physical pain. I strive to comfort and nurture clients. It’s an honor to be invited to share in the pregnancy process in this way,” explains Dietl.

The Spa of the Rockies Prenatal Massage is offered to pregnant women after their first trimester through the end of their final trimester. All expectant mothers should check with their doctors prior to getting a massage. Pregnant clients should share information about their condition with their massage therapist upon arrival so that therapists can adjust prenatal massages to suit individual needs and preferences.
