Prenatal massage

Prenatal massage shares many of the goals of regular massage — to relax tense muscles, ease sore spots, improve circulation and mobility, and to ease stress. But it’s also tailored specifically to the needs of pregnant women and their changing bodies.

Massage therapy during pregnancy, improves overall health and eases many discomforts associated with pregnancy, such as back and pelvic pain. While the increased circulation, helps reduce swelling.

Carrying a baby changes your center of gravity and puts a lot of stress on your back, neck, abdominal muscles and shoulders. Pregnancy also relaxes your ligaments, so that your pelvic joints are less stable, and changes your posture, pulling your pelvis forward. Add to that the extra weight you’re carrying and you’ve got yourself an aching lower back.  Massage alleviates pelvic pressure, eases back pain, reduces swelling, improves breathing and reduces muscle tension and fatigue.
