A Little Pregnant

Addressing the Issues

I’m currently treating a patient who is 7.5 months pregnant, and she is glowing!

I started seeing her as she entered her third trimester, and as she is getting closer to her due date the frequency of treatments will increase.

She is exhibiting the normal signs of pregnancy:

  • Insomnia
  • Nausea

Here are a few other changes that can affect a pregnancy:

  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Varicose veins
  • Forward head posture
  • Swollen ankles
  • Hip problems
  • Flat feet

Through her treatments, we have addressed her symptoms and the massages have helped in treating her insomnia resulting in a better, deeper sleep.

During the last massage treatment, I was doing some diaphragm work to help with her breathing because the increased weight of the baby is causing increased discomfort. And he kicked me!!

At first I thought he was angry, but then was reassured by Mom-to-be, that it’s a sign of approval. The more I treated, the more active he became. It was a thrill that I’ll never forget.

Since we don’t have children (I don’t need the competition), it was an experience that I won’t soon forget. I look forward to giving more treatments and getting my kicks.
