Pregnancy Massage

Pregnancy massage, also known as prenatal massage, is tailored specifically to the needs of pregnant women. It aims to relieve discomforts associated with pregnancy, such as backaches, stiff neck, leg cramps, headaches, and edema (or swelling). In addition to physical relief, pregnancy massage can also provide emotional support through nurturing touch, helping to soothe anxiety and depression associated with pregnancy.

Pregnancy massage is performed with care, focusing on the unique needs of the expectant mother. Therapists are trained in special techniques and positions to ensure the safety and comfort of both the mother and the baby. For instance, side-lying positions are often used to avoid pressure on the abdomen. The benefits of pregnancy massage go beyond relaxation, including enhanced sleep, improved circulation, and a greater sense of body awareness, which can be beneficial during childbirth.
