Pregnancy massage provides the mum-to-be time to unwind in a peaceful & soothing environment. The baby can also benefit from endorphins released by the mother.
Although pregnancy can be a wonderful experience, it is also the time of greatest change within the mother’s body. This can put strain & pressure on the joints, ligaments & organs, which may cause aches, discomfort & ailments from back pain to swollen ankles, which massage can help to alleviate. Particular care for the mother’s comfort & safety is taken, with most women opting to use a side-lying position.
