Get pregnancy massage therapy in Kitsilano

If you’re looking for pregnancy massage therapy in Kitsilano, Alpine Massage is the clinic for you. Around half of all pregnant women experience some form of pain during their pregnancy. While for some this is fleeting and mild, for others the pain can be more severe and debilitating. Massage therapy has been shown to be an effective way to manage pregnancy pain. In this blog post, we’ll take a closer look at how massage can help, and we’ll also discuss some of the other benefits of massage therapy during pregnancy. 

One of the most common symptoms in early pregnancy is nausea. Massage can help to ease nausea by promoting relaxation and improving circulation. While it may not eliminate nausea completely, it can be a bit of relief (even if temporarily) from the discomfort of morning sickness.

Another very common area of discomfort during pregnancy is low back and hip pain. This can be caused by a variety of reasons: an increase in the hormone Relaxin, which relaxes the ligaments in the pelvis, weight changes and a change in centre of gravity. Massage can help provide relief by loosening tight muscles and improving range of motion. In addition, massage can help to reduce swelling by stimulating the lymphatic system and promoting drainage. As a result, massage therapy can be an effective way to alleviate common pregnancy pains.

Getting a massage while pregnant might sound like a good idea, but you might be wondering “how the heck am I going to lay on my stomach for a massage?!”. This is where pregnancy pillows come in. They provide support and space for you to lay in a prone position (on your stomach) so that you can enjoy all the many benefits of massage therapy while pregnant. Alternatively, if pregnancy pillows just don’t feel comfortable, side-lying is another option. This position allows you to lay on your side with pillows for support.

If you’re pregnant, give massage a try. It can help alleviate aches and pains, make you feel better, and improve your mood. Not to mention, it’s a great way to relax and de-stress. So go ahead and book that prenatal massage today! Have a look at our wonderful team of RMT’s here. For pregnancy massage therapy in Kitsilano, look no further than Alpine Massage.

Alpine Massage is fantastic: booking is easily done online and availability is much better than most places. They ask a lot of questions during the first session to ensure they understand your pain points and needs, and during the treatment session, I definitely felt they were addressing my chronic lower back and shoulder pain. My RMT, Kimberly, uses just the right amount of pressure to feel like my muscle tensions are being released but not so much that I’m dying from the pain.Only complaint I have is parking: I couldn’t figure out if the underground parking is available (clinic is attached to ambulance station). If you’re going at a busy time, you may need to budget a bit more time to find street parking and walking to the clinic. Small detail for an otherwise great clinic!

I had two fantastic massage therapy sessions at Alpine massage therapy. Once with Elsie and once with Sophie. Both sessions were amazing and helped greatly with my pain and stress. Highly recommended!

I came up with this place on Google Maps within walking distance and thought I give them a try. I didn’t know any of their therapists, so I booked an appointment with Elsie Webber. When she finished her job, I had my best massage therapy experience EVER. When I went to book more sessions, I found their schedules quite busy. Not a surprise, though 😊I kept booking weekly appointments with Elsie for a while. She is amazingly skillful, professional and precise. She well knows how to treat every single muscle over your body. You don’t know how stiff some of your deep muscles could be until she makes you feel them. I can’t recommend her enough.The place itself is spotless, quiet and cozy. All of the staff are very friendly. I love this place and recommend them to anyone looking for a massage therapist around Kits and Arbutus Ridge.

I was scheduled with Elsie for a 30 minute massage. I have been really tense and sore lately from cycling and long hours at my desk and I instantly felt at ease and relaxed after my massage. She knew which areas needed extra pressure and always checked in to see how I was handling it. It was such a great experience and I definitely will be scheduling with her again!

Amy is the best. I can quite honestly say it’s hard to find an RMT that will not give you just a relaxing massage, but one that also actually works out the muscle and back issues I have with Scoliosis. Always gives service with a warm, welcoming smile.

If you haven’t already seen Amy at Alpine Massage Therapy, what are you doing?! Once I found Amy I’ve never looked back, I’ve recommended her to everyone I know who needs an RMT, she is so friendly, thorough, and always listens to what you are feeling in your body and gives advice on stretches and techniques to help tight areas to help alleviate issues between visits. She is the best!
