Pregnancy Massage

What is Pregnancy Massage?

Pregnancy Massage is a general term for any hands-on massage during or after pregnancy. Massage while you are pregnant is also called "antenatal" massage while a few months after delivery is called "postnatal" massage. It may help alleviate many of the symptoms and conditions associated with pregnancy. Over the months, your body undergoes numerous changes and your body will spend the entire period adapting accordingly. Not only do you experience unnecessary feelings of stress and worry but also pain and discomfort. The therapy session typically last for 1 hour. 

What Conditions Can it Treat?

During this amazing time of physical and emotional change, massage may be of enormous benefit to both the mother and baby. The procedure helps to prepare the body for the changes that occur during this special time and may help to promote a healthy, happy pregnancy, as well as labour and recovery period.
