Pregnancy massage may help to alleviate a number of common pregnancy related complaints. Your pregnancy massage therapist is trained in a number of techniques to help pregnant mothers reduce strain, prevent injury, provide comfort, reduce stress and provide relief from common pregnancy aches and pains such as sore back or feet and swollen ankles.
A unique massage therapy, Pregnancy massage uses pillows to carefully support the mother and baby during a session. The massage is very gentle and, for safety, deep tissue pressure is never used. Some areas of the body are avoided during pregnancy massage while others are given extra attention to treat issues related to pregnancy.
Generally, pregnancy massage is not recommended for your first trimester but it can be very beneficial during the later months of pregnancy.
