Now, let’s find out more about ‘Pregnancy Massage’ for all the mum’s to be out there! We will look in to what is involved in the treatment and the overall health benefits.
What is it?
Pregnancy massage is not hugely different from your average relaxing massage. The main difference is that techniques used in a pregnancy massage are adapted to maintain the overall well being of both you (the mother) and your unborn child. Experts consider this type of treatment safe to have after the first trimester.
What is involved?
Massage relieves many of the normal discomforts experienced during pregnancy, such as backache, stiff neck, leg cramps and headaches. Pregnancy massage is great to help you and you little one, through feel good endorphins and as a ‘natural’ stress reliever.
Did you know? getting a 1 hour massage is the equivalent of getting 8 hours of sleep!
