During pregnancy, a woman’s body goes through major changes physically and emotionally. It has been shown that massage positively impacts on the well being of the mother and also gives her that special attention, which in turn nurtures the new life that grows within her.

Regular massage therapy for Mothers to-be can help relax tense muscles and relieve issues with a sore neck, lower back, hip and headaches. It also reduces swelling on the hands and feet and helps with fatigue, cramps, stress hormones , which in turn promotes relaxation, improves circulation and mobility, and sleep patterns.

Women can begin massage therapy at any point in their pregnancy – during the first, second, or third trimester.

Mothers-to-be with particular conditions, such as high-risk pregnancy, high blood pressure, diabetes, preeclampsia – may not be able to receive massage therapy.

Consult your doctor before proceeding with any type of bodywork.
