Here at Lakeside Prenatal Massage, I provide Registered Massage Therapy for prenatal and non-prenatal clients in a clean, quiet and safe environment at my home-office location in Port Rowan, Ontario. Feel and sleep better when you choose Lakeside Prenatal Massage as part of your self-care routine.
Hi, I’m Stephanie Swarts, registered massage therapist, and founder of Lakeside Prenatal Massage.
My mission is pretty simple: TO HELP PREGNANT WOMEN FEEL BETTER!
I’ve been a massage therapist since 2008, but after the experiences of giving birth four times at home with professional midwives, I felt drawn to specialize in prenatal massage to help the women of Norfolk County. I know how important it is to find a self-care routine that relieves stress and physical discomfort, and it is my desire to help make life for pregnant women a little bit easier.
Over the years, I have served as an RMT (Registered Massage Therapist) in a variety of practices around Norfolk County. Currently, I work from a private home-practice in the town of Port Rowan near Lake Erie, Long Point.
In 2022, I took the Maternity Massage Specialist Training Course with EXPERTS of massage therapy for pregnancy, labor, and motherhood.
Using proper equipment and knowledge to confidently handle high-risk and low-risk pregnancies, my goal is to help women feel good, hurt less and sleep better.
Pregnant women typically have a lot of aches, pains and worries. Massage therapy can improve overall prenatal health and should be considered an important option along with regular prenatal care. Massage therapy has been associated with better pregnancy outcomes and reduced risk of premature birth. I am dedicated to giving you my best effort to alleviate your discomforts and help you walk out feeling better than when you came in.
My special prenatal pillows allow for you to feel weightless laying in a face down position- of course, we will only position you according to your comfort. Side-lying or sitting are also options. I am trained to use Young Living pure therapeutic-grade essential oils that are safe in pregnancy for optimal results. If you have allergies you are aware of, please let me know ahead of time, or if you have any of the following concerns, please speak to your doctor to see if there might be a contraindication to receiving massage therapy:
*Which could be a sign of pre-eclampsia
I donate $5 from every massage to a charity helping feed, clothe, or give clean water to children in need.
Cleanliness is a top priority to me and I designate time between each appointment to disinfect according to the standards of the CMTO.
I only use 100% pure therapeutic-grade essential oils by Young Living. I have studied this brand for over a decade and believe in the beneficial use of it during treatment.
General Swedish and non-Swedish Massage Techniques with the use of 100% pure therapeutic-grade oils and light-to-deep pressure, based on your preference.
I combine general Swedish massage and deep tissue massage techniques to target the outer and inner layers of your muscles, tendons fascia and connective tissue. I discuss with you the pressure level that you feel is best at the time of your treatment. Massage treatments include high-quality, pure and therapeutic-grade oil and essential oils.
Using general Swedish and deep tissue massage techniques, I provide both pre and postnatal massage therapy through all stages of pregnancy. I provide prenatal massage therapy pillows to suit any stage in your pregnancy for a weight-less feeling. Massage treatments include high-quality pure and therapeutic-grade oil and essential oils safe for pregnancy. I have a doula training and currently am expanding my knowledge to specialize in prenatal massage.
