Postnatal Massage in Lansing

postnatal massage momBecoming a mom is a beautiful, yet challenging journey that’s often accompanied by various aches and pains. Often, new mothers find themselves hunched forward due to the constant nursing and holding of their babies. This shift in posture can lead to discomfort and muscle tension over time.

Postnatal massage is an excellent way to alleviate these physical discomforts. Mikki Williams, Licensed Massage Therapist (LMT) at Rassel-Daigneault Holistic Health Center, provides comfortable massages to help new moms enjoy a more comfortable postnatal period. Perhaps best of all, you can lie facedown during your session!


What Are the Top Benefits?

  • Pain Relief: Postnatal massage helps alleviate muscle soreness, back pain, and joint discomfort commonly experienced after childbirth.
  • Stress Reduction: It aids in reducing stress and anxiety levels, promoting relaxation and overall well-being for new mothers.
  • Improved Circulation: Postnatal massage enhances blood circulation, expediting the healing process and promoting better overall health.
  • Hormonal Balance: The massage helps regulate hormones such as cortisol and oxytocin, improving mood and emotional well-being.
  • Enhanced Breastfeeding: Through techniques like lymphatic drainage and positional release, postnatal massage can improve breast milk production and alleviate breastfeeding-related discomfort.

Techniques Used

Mikki’s expertise in postnatal massage focuses on lengthening areas often affected by a change in posture, such as shoulder cuff and the hip flexors. Techniques involving stretching and positional release alleviate tension in these areas, allowing new mothers to stand tall and care for their little ones without discomfort or pain.

Commonly, the birthing process can affect the respiratory system after childbirth, causing short, staggered breaths. The intercostal muscles surrounding the ribs often tighten, making it challenging for new mothers to take deep, carried breaths. Mikki addresses this issue through specialized massage techniques, enabling smoother, deeper breathing and thus promoting overall relaxation.

Tailored to Suit Your Needs

Each new mother’s journey is unique, so Mikki provides individualized attention, understanding the uniqueness of each case. Her passion for pre and postnatal care and her professional expertise ensures a massage experience that is as special as it is therapeutic.
