pregnant woman having backacheWhen you’re pregnant, there are so many things running in and out of your mind. Preparing for the baby is a full-time job, and it’s often as stressful as it is exciting. And when you’re caught up in the  registries (is Jimmy Choo an appropriate entry?) baby-naming (Psoas has a nice ring to it, don’t you think?) and crib-building (align part A with part B and adhere with crazy glue…) that accompany a pregnancy, it can be very easy to forget about yourself, the pregnant one.

At Psoas, your therapist will not treat you as a fragile pregnant woman, but rather as an individual who needs skilled bodywork. We have extensive training in prenatal massage and know how to get into the muscle tissue that is bothering you. You will leave feeling the same benefits of a great massage as when you are not pregnant.

Check out what we can do to help you take care of yourself.

Plenty of women enjoy and thrive on remaining active during their pregnancies and it’s also a great way to avoid excess weight gain that can pile on so easily during those 10 months. This week we’re sharing another article courtesy of One Medical, by Health and Fitness Expert, Sally Wadyka on how to exercise safely while pregnant. Enjoy!
