Pregnancy Massage

Pregnancy massage has a lot of therapeutic benefits and can help pregnant women to cope with the changes to their bodies and minds that occur in this special time of their lives.  

 

Pregnancy massage includes prenatal and postnatal massage. Many pregnant women suffer from ailments and musculoskeletal problems due to the body continuously changing. The massage is similar in many ways to a normal massage with the main difference being the techniques used during pregnancy which are adapted to maintain the wellbeing of mother and child. Techniques can include gentle massage and firm massage to help relax the expectant mother.
