Pregnancy Massage is suitable from 16 weeks to full term.
Pregnancy massage is massage therapy specifically tailored for the expectant mother’s needs. It is also called pre-natal massage.
The mother’s body must be properly positioned and supported during the massage, using pillows and padding. This massage is usually done in a side lying position. Proper positioning ensures comfort and safety for the mother and baby.
Pregnancy massage has been found to reduce anxiety and stress, decrease swelling in the arms and legs, and relieve muscular aches and pains.
It’s a popular natural therapy for back pain, when choices for pain relief, such as medication, are often limited. As well as being physically beneficial, the human touch can be comforting and provide emotional support during pregnancy.
