Prenatal massage is a wonderful way to help get you through your pregnancy.

Positioning

Prenatal massage can be performed with a woman lying on her back or side. She may even feel most comfortable sitting up. Whatever makes you feel most comfortable, the staff at Emerge Medical & Well Spa can adapt. Positioning often depends on how far along you are in your pregnancy, your comfort level, and what part of your body you want to be massaged.

Types of Massage

There are more than 80 types of massage, but not all of them are appropriate for a prenatal massage. Our massage therapists could recommend a deep tissue massage that presses into your muscles to alleviate your aching back or shoulders. Swedish massage, with its long strokes, helps with joint flexibility. Shiatsu uses pressure and tapping to stimulate your body’s natural relaxation response.

About the Legs

Our massage therapists take the utmost care of you and your baby during a prenatal massage. Pregnant women have a risk for blood clots in the legs during the third trimester. We typically avoid deep massage and strong pressure on the legs. Even if you feel pain and bloating in your legs and feet, we’ll try to alleviate your discomfort as much as possible with a light prenatal massage in those areas.

Consult With Your Doctor

We always want you to be in the best possible health before, during, and after you see us. Please consult with your doctor before getting a prenatal massage. Your doctor can advise you on what can and cannot be done based on your specific situation. Rest assured, our staff will follow your doctor’s guidelines.

Self Care at Emerge Medical & Well Spa

Life can be stressful! In the mayhem of our busy lives, we often forget to pause and spend time on self-care. Though that phrase may sound frivolous in the face of deadlines at work or any other major pressing matter in your life, it is crucial. If you don’t spend time on self-care, eventually you’ll find yourself burnt out and unable to keep up with the things you need to stay on top of.

At Emerge Medical & Well Spa we are firm believers in taking time to take care of yourself. Here are some ideas for your next self-care day that will help keep you revitalized and healthy as you navigate the pressures of everyday life!

Get a Massage

This is probably the first thing that comes to your mind when you think of self-care and for a good reason too! There are few things in this world more relaxing and revitalizing than a good massage.

At Emerge Medical & Well Spa we offer a wide variety of massages that will help you get back to feeling good and ready to take on the world.

A deep tissue massage is always an excellent choice. The idea is to target deep in the muscles to alleviate chronic pain like a stiff neck, back, or shoulders. If you sit at a desk all day hunched over a computer (which most people do), then this is the perfect choice for you! Get rid of the stiffness so you can get back to feeling like yourself!

Get a Detox Foot Bath

We all need a good detox from time to time. It helps restore you to optimal health! At Emerge Medical & Well Space, we offer an array of wellness services, one of which is a fantastic Detox Foot Bath. All you have to do is sit back and put your feet in a basin full of warm water and let the Ion Detox Foot Bath extract toxins. The best part is that even after you’ve left Emerge Medical & Well Spa, your body will continue to detox for the next 48-72 hours.

Among the many benefits of a Detox Foot Bath are an improved immune system, increased energy levels, improved sleep, and so much more! Who doesn’t need more of those things?

Get a Facial

When you’re tired and stressed, your skin reflects that. A great way to give your skin some life is to indulge in a facial.

At Emerge Medical & Well Spa, our spa facials run between 45 and 50 minutes long. You’ll get to lay back and enjoy a face, neck, shoulder, and scalp massage as well as receive the benefits of skin analysis and deep pore cleansing.

You will leave your appointment glowing and looking refreshed as well as having gained more knowledge about what kind of beauty regimen will help nourish your skin!

Get a Shot of Vitamin B12

This method of self-care might not have been on your radar, but it should be. A Vitamin B12 shot is a wonderful, natural way to boost your energy, increase your metabolism, boost your mood, and keep your cardiovascular system functioning smoothly. If you’ve never had a Vitamin B12 shot before, check out the Emerge Medical & Well Spa website to learn more!
