StressBusters is the pioneer in the Prenatal/Post Partum/Infant Massage Field. With our specialization that began in 1993, we have helped thousands of women enjoy a comfortable and joyous pregnancy. We are the exclusive referral of Saddleback Memorial Hospital, and work on the labor and delivery floor there. We have also partnered with the Women’s Wellness center at Mission Hospital and do massage work there. In addition we are referred to by Orange Coast Women’s Medical Group, Mission OB/GYN Medical Group, Women’s Medical Group of Irvine, SouthCoast Midwifery and The Yoga Place and offer home visits for high-risk moms who may be on bed-rest.

Pregnancy Massage

This massage is a professional service provided ONLY by specially certified Pregnancy Massage Therapists. The prenatal massages are conducted with the mom in a side lying and semi-reclining position while relaxing on custom made hydraulic tables. These amazing tables suspend mom in a position of nearly weightlessness so the therapist can release and soothe every achey muscle and joint. Our therapists can eliminate both the physical and emotional stresses that are associated with your pregnancy. If you are blessed with a pregnancy without discomforts, our massages will deeply pamper and nurture you while also increasing the possibility of a quicker labor and with less medical interventions. If you do however, have pregnancy related complaints, this work will reduce or eliminate back, leg, neck & sciatic pain; reduce edema, swelling, leg cramps, pelvic pressure, hip and shoulder pain.

Pre-natal massage allows you a greater range of motion and activity longer into your pregnancy as well as assisting in more comfortable sleeping. Recent clinical evidence shows by receiving pre-natal massages by properly certified therapists, moms have a shorter, less painful labor and with fewer medical interventions.

You won’t get a feather-light massage from our staff, either (unless that is your desire). Since we are properly educated and highly experienced, we know how to work with a pressure that is effective, safe and deliciously deep while also nurturing to both mom and baby.

Some massage facilities will not work on a pregnant woman in one trimester or another. This is a wise legal precaution for them because their therapists may not be properly prenatal certified or are minimally educated in Prenatal Massage. StressBusters however, stands alone as the premier prenatal provider in southern California! We have specialized in prenatal massage in Orange County for 20 years. Our work has received several awards in the community, has been featured in the LA Times, OC Register and on the OC TV News channel. Since our therapists know how to position you correctly, you and your baby(s) are perfectly safe with us during all three trimesters.

We have earned the trust (and exclusive) referral from Saddleback Hospital, Mission Hospital, High Risk Physicians, Doulas, Mid-wives, Prenatal Yoga teachers and local OB/GYN’s. StressBusters is the facility that the female OB’s frequent when they themselves are expecting.

Induction Massage

There have been vast amounts of research done regarding the detrimental effects of delivering your baby early. Therefore, StressBusters promotes waiting until your due date to birth your baby.

Research shows that a baby’s brain at 35 weeks weighs only two-thirds what it will weigh at 39 to 40 weeks (StressBusters will NOT perform this massage prior to your due date. We REQUIRE a note from your doctor indicating your Due Date).

The March of dimes has done extensive research regarding fetal development during the last three weeks of your pregnancy, which they discovered that:

  • Important organs, like his/her brain, lungs and liver get the time they need to develop.
  • He/she is less likely to have hearing and vision problems after birth.
  • He/she has time to gain more weight in the womb. Babies born at a healthy weight have an easier time staying warm than babies that are born too small.
  • He/she can suck and swallow and stay awake long enogh to eat after he is born. Babies born early sometimes can’t do these things.

Should you be at or past your due date, StressBusters’ Induction Massage is perfect for helping induce labor in a safe, natural way. There are pressure points on your body that are known for kick-starting labor. We avoid these during a standard prenatal massage, but use them to our advantage when you need help getting your new baby here. We’ll relax you and ease your pain with our prenatal massage expertise while aiding in your baby’s swift and safe arrival.

To reiterate StressBusters will NOT perform an Induction Massage prior to your due date. We will need a letter from your doctor advising us of your due date as well as their referral to perform an Induction Massage.
