Massage can help throughout all trimesters of pregnancy to help cope with the aches and pains of a woman’s changing body. Back pain, swelling in legs and feet, headaches, insomnia can all be treated with Massage Therapy.
•Studies support what more and more women are discovering about massage therapy during pregnancy – it has been shown to:
•improve maternal mood
•decrease depression and anxiety
•decrease stress hormones in pregnant women
•decrease obstetrical complications, and
•improve neonatal health and development.
Our most asked pregnancy massage question is if we have the pregnancy table that allows mom to lay face down; we do not have those tables; we have our moms sidely during the treatment and/or laying face up with a wedge depending on comfort.
