During pregnancy a woman's body undergoes numerous physical changes. Weight gain puts undue pressure on muscles and the skeleton. Hormones are secreted to soften joints and ligaments making the body more flexible for labor and delivery.
Prenatal Massage is used to ease the discomfort for these changes. It is performed on specially designed orthopedic cushions, which allow the woman to lie comfortably face down (even into later months) alleviating pressure.
Benefits of Prenatal Massage:
Provides relaxation during and after pregnancy
Fosters nurturing maternal touch
Reduces edema and blood pressure, relieves varicose veins, increases circulation
