Tension slips away under the hands of certified massage therapists, who dole out a multitude of massage treatments to reduce pain and promote relaxation. Smooth, gliding strokes and mild pressure gently unravel tightly wound muscles during the popular Swedish massage. With the deep-tissue massage, more assertive pressure and trigger-point therapy work with transverse-fiber friction to ease muscle strain and break down scar tissue. Safe and specialized techniques in the prenatal massage help relieve pains and tension in the lower back caused by carrying around miniature doppelgangers, as moms-to-be lie face down on a specialized table that keeps weight off the nesting baby. The therapeutic massage works to release long-standing muscular tensions, using gentle kneads and moderate pressure to rid muscles of emotional baggage so they can have a healthy relationship with the body. The massage works to loosen muscles around the hips and pelvis to minimize pain during delivery.
