Prenatal Massage Therapy

As women go through the various stages of pregnancy, many changes will occur. Physically, as the uterus grows with the growing fetus, the weight and stress affects your neck, shoulders, spine and overall posture. Prenatal massage therapy is beneficial for all stages of pregnancy (pre-natal or post-natal) to promote relaxation. Further into the pregnancy, women commonly experience more swelling, aches, and insomnia, finding it hard to find comfort in their changing bodies. Various techniques can be safely used to alleviate discomfort for the mom to be.
