Prenatal or pregnancy massage uses gentle massage techniques to help alleviate the complaints associated with pregnancy. The client lies on their side supported by pillows to ensure comfort, and a simple and safe lavender-scented oil is used for the session. The therapist gently works the tissue avoiding the common trigger points that may induce labor. Prenatal massage is safe at any time during your pregnancy, but it is always advisable to check with your doctor prior to receiving treatment.
Some benefits of receiving both pre-natal and post-natal massage:
Stress Reduction, Relief from Depression, Pain Relief, Hormone Regulation, Decreased Swelling, Better Sleep, Relief from Fatigue, Improved Breastfeeding
