Pregnancy Massage can be beneficial to ease many common symptoms, such as edema, carpel tunnel syndrome, digestive problems and back pain.
It also helps to relieve anxiety, promote relaxation and better quality sleep, at a time which may be exciting but also overwhelming.
Specialised body support cushions enable safety & comfort in the prone condition often for much of the pregnancy. Side-lying or seated positions mean massage can continue up to term if required.
Massage is a very safe therapy for pregnant women, and can help relieve symptoms at a time when medication may be inadvisable. It can also help alleviate symptoms during the post-partum period.
Massage is contra-indicated with a few pregnancy conditions, such as placental dysfunction.
With certain other medical conditions of pregnancy it may well be possible with the consent of your doctor or midwife.
