During pregnancy, the weight has shifted drastically in a woman's body. Weight has been added to the belly, which puts a large strain on the back.
Pregnancy can also be a very stressful time emotionally. Massage therapy, both before and after birth, can help relieve these strains in an extremely comfortable and nurturing way.
Prenatal massage therapy focuses on the special needs of the mother-to-be. While providing emotional support and nurturing touches, it provides relaxation by relieving stress on joints, eases neck and back pain, helps to keep good posture and relaxes and provides flexibility.
Massage can aid the circulatory and lymphatic systems, which can keep blood flowing to both the mother and the baby, and reduce fatigue. It stimulates different glands in the body, which help to stabilize hormone levels, and relieves nervous tension throughout the body. Women who are pregnant should wait until their second trimester to receive any bodywork.
A special Body Cushion is used to keep the mother-to-be comfortably positioned on her side, with pillows to support the arms and legs, making her feel completely supported for complete relaxation.
