Massage – Pregnancy

Pregnancy is a time to be pampered. A therapist trained to perform pregnancy massage understands the changes occurring in the mother’s body during pregnancy and adapts the massage to suit. Pregnancy massage can promote increased circulation, thereby bringing fresh nutrients and removing wastes. You may experience greater energy, less fatigue and reduced swelling as a result. The client may have a special body support system to lie face down on, or may prefer a side-lying position especially in the third trimester. Pre-labour massage helps sedate the nervous system and release endorphins, which are natural pain killers, and so lead to a state of deep relaxation.
