Pre & Post-Natal Massage is a unique massage helping mothers-to-be and mothers to relieve tension and stress throughout their pregnancies, and afterwards as well. Contrary to some belief, massage is very safe during pregnancy and many women rave about the effects of massage during or after pregnancy. Throughout pregnancy, your center of gravity begins to change. This puts a lot of stress on the muscles in your back and abdomen. Also, as your uterus grows, the ligaments attaching to your pelvis stretch and become sore and painful.
Your specially trained therapist will help to decrease muscle tension, ligament pain, and other pain and restrictions during your pregnancy. As your body changes throughout your pregnancy, each massage will be tailored to your specific needs. After you deliver you bundle of joy, your massage therapist can also help with any stress and tension you may be experiencing as a result of child birth and raising a child.
