Prenatal Massage: When comfort is essential, provide relief for a late third term pregnancy
What's the most important aspect of prenatal massage? Comfort.
See what pregnancy massage professionals, among others say about the bodyCushion:
... My pregnant clients, in particular, appreciate the face-down position unique to this system throughout their entire pregnancies and postpartum. Many of the common discomforts associated with pregnancy – i.e., lower back pain, edema, abdominal pressure – are greatly alleviated by using the bodyCushion.
- Elaine Stillerman, LMT, - Elaine Stillerman, LMT, founder of MotherMassage®
...There was a time I would have told you to buy a few standard pillows for bolstering your clients. Then I learned from experience that the bodyCushion is the only way to simply and effectively position and provide comfort to your pregnant clients...
- Greg Fears, Director of the Humanities Center School of Massage, St. Petersburg, FL
...All of my clients, including acute back pain patients and pregnant women, marvel at how comfortable they feel on the bodyCushion.
- Laura Jarrell, LMT
The bodyCushion for Pregnancy is the most advanced prenatal orthopedic positioning device for professional massage therapy available anywhere in the world. It offers safe, restful relief throughout the pregnancy; which is exactly why expectant mothers are purchasing this set up for home use. Increased space for the pregnant uterus is provided by separating the bodyCushion Chest Support and Pelvic Support.
More than 30 years of pregnancy positioning experience led to the development of the bodyCushion Elevator. The combination of the bodyCushion and the Elevator accommodates the expectant mother in complete comfort throughout her pregnancy even in the late third term.
