At Calgary Massage Clinic, we are pleased to offer prenatal and infant massage services. Prenatal Massage is beneficial for both mother and baby, while Infant Massage is ideal for strengthening the parent-child bond.
When a woman is pregnant, getting a massage is a good way to reduce the stress of pregnancy. Studies have shown that Pregnancy Massage can improve the woman’s mood, ease the pain, decrease depression and anxiety and reduce the risk of pregnancy complications.
Since the stages of pregnancy introduce large hormonal changes in a woman’s body, this can often cause fatigue, irritability, nausea and water retention. Since the fetus is continually growing throughout the pregnancy, the body’s hormones cause ligaments and tendons to relax to make room for the growing child, which can cause numerous muscular aches and pains to develop. These can be alleviated with pregnancy massage. Let our multidisciplinary team of Acupuncturists and Massage Therapist help you manage your back pain so you can enjoy all the beautiful experiences pregnancy brings!
Our Massage Therapists will teach you the extraordinary benefits of infant massage and help you develop a personalized massage routine for your baby. Some of the benefits of massaging your baby are:
· Helps relieve discomfort from gas, colic, and constipation
· Improves blood circulation
· Aids in digestion
· Enhanced development of the nervous system
· Increases alertness/heightened awareness
· Reduces stress hormones and increases relaxation (possibly aiding in sleep)
· Improves immune function
· Enhances communication between parent and baby and deepens bonding
Infant (baby) massage is a very traditional parenting practice around the world. In western society, however, it is virtually unknown. In fact, many parents worry that massaging their babies might hurt them! Not only is massaging your baby not harmful, but it can also actually be a great bonding experience for you, and it can help your baby live and grow more comfortably.
Our highly trained therapists are skilled in injury rehab and pain relief and offer a wide range of massage modalities with their unique, personal styles and special techniques. Your session will always be customized for your individual needs and lifestyle modifications or follow-up care with other modalities or practitioners. .

Dynamic Cupping is a massage technique that uses soft silicone cups. The suction, caused by negative air pressure, creates a “drawing” action of the tissues. The lasting results are highly effective at separating tissue layers that may be consistently tight, adhered together, or knotted.
Cosmetically, paraffin wax is often applied to the hands and feet. The wax is a natural emollient, helping make skin supple and soft. When applied to the skin, it adds moisture and continues to boost the moisture levels of the skin after the treatment is complete. It can also help open pores and remove dead skin cells.
