During pregnancy, your body goes through major changes. Massage may be particularly helpful during a time when medication and other medical options may be more limited.
Studies indicate that massage therapy performed during pregnancy can reduce anxiety, decrease symptoms of depression, relieve muscle aches and joint pains, and improve labor outcomes and newborn health.
Ease your aching muscles and give your baby and yourself a much needed, nurturing massage with special attention given to the lower back, relieving discomfort and promoting circulation while using the proper support for you and your baby. Lay on your belly with our specially designed maternity bolster, or on your side supported by pillows – you are sure to find the perfect support for perfect relaxation.
Some benefits of prenatal massage may include:
