Carrying a baby changes your center of gravity and posture and puts a lot of stress on your back, neck, abdominal muscles, and shoulders. Pregnancy Massage here is done in the side-lying position with pillows and a full-length body pillow for support.  Benefits of Pregnancy Massage may include:

• Emotional support and nurturing touch
• Tranquil relaxation, decreased insomnia and reduced stress
• Relief from muscle cramps, spasms, sciatica, and myofascial pain
• Stress relief on weight-bearing joints, such as ankles, lower back and pelvis
• Headache and sinus congestion relief
• Increased blood and lymph circulation, which can reduce swelling
• Improved outcome of labor and ease of labor pain

Women with normal, low-risk pregnancies can benefit greatly from the variety of massage techniques offered here. However, women in high-risk pregnancies should consult their doctor or midwife before beginning a massage therapy program. If you experience discomfort at any time during the pregnancy massage, please speak up immediately.
