Pregnancy Massage, also called Prenatal Massage, refers to specific massage techniques that have been shown to reduce pregnancy discomforts and to enhance the physiological and emotional well-being of both mother and foetus.
During Prenatal Massage, therapists take extra care to ensure that expectant mothers are comfortable. Generally, side-line positioning has been found the most desirable where clients are supported with cushions that alleviate the extra strain on the lower back and pelvic areas. Depending on where you are in your pregnancy, your therapist might use massage techniques as Reflexology, Swedish massage or other techniques that address your specific requests and needs.
Pregnancy massage has been found to reduce stress, decrease swelling in the arms and legs, and relieve aches and pains in muscles and joints. It is also a popular complementary therapy during pregnancy for back pain and can help relieve depression or anxiety caused by hormonal changes.
For whom do we recommend it?
Pregnancy Massage is specifically tailored for the expectant mother's needs and it is becoming increasingly popular. This massage therapy can be incorporated into routine prenatal care as an emotional and physical health supplement, too. Choose your therapist now and let your massage begin!
