Are you suffering from aches and pains during your pregnancy? Do you need some time out to relax and take the weight off? Enjoy a massage tailor made to suit your changing body and give you the ultimate in relaxation.
Pregnancy or prenatal massage is similar to holistic massage, the main difference being that massage techniques used in pregnancy are adapted to maintain the wellbeing of mother and child. Techniques vary from firmer strokes to relieve discomfort or softer strokes to help relax and soothe.
Pregnancy massage is extremely therapeutic and a welcome addition to the pregnancy journey, relieving mental and physical fatigue. The massage also serves to enhance the function of muscles and joints, improves circulation and general body tone.
Pregnancy massage is available after the first trimester.
If you have any of the following issues talk to your doctor before booking a prenatal massage:
High blood pressure that isn’t controlled by medication
High risk pregnancy concerns such as congenital heart disease or preeclampsia
Recent injury or surgery
