Pregnancy Massage, or Prenatal Massage, is a treatment that has been practised for many years to help expectant mothers through pregnancy. During pregnancy, the body of an expectant mother is continually adjusting, these adjustments can cause pregnant women to become uncomfortable. Pregnancy massage can help alleviate aches and pains and decrease swelling in certain areas of the body.
On top of helping with physical symptoms, pregnancy massage is also an exceptional way of relieving stress, curing anxiety and helping pregnant women to relax.

What is Pregnancy Massage?
Pregnancy Massage is a therapeutic bodywork that focuses on the unique needs of the mother-to-be as her body goes through the changes of pregnancy. Performing the treatment involves having the expectant mother lie on her side, propped up with a pillow.
Pregnancy Massage enhances the function of muscles and joints, improves circulation, general body tone, and relieves mental and physical fatigue. The gentle, non-invasive nature of Prenatal Massage can ease discomfort associated with pregnancy. The treatment can also help the mother-to-be prepare for labour and offer emotional support.
Although pregnancy aches and pains are an accepted part of having a baby, regular massage and bodywork can help to make the experience as comfortable as possible.
