Pregnancy massage is a massage therapy specifically tailored for the expectant mother’s needs. This type of massage can reduce stress, ease back pain, decrease swelling in the arms and legs, improve circulation and relieve aches and pains in muscles and joints. Positioning during a pregnancy massage is critical to the safety and well-being of both the mother and the baby she is carrying. The mother- to- be will be turned on her side for the duration of the treatment and extra pillows and padding will be provided in abundance for her comfort.
