Massage therapy during pregnancy is a wonderful complementary choice for prenatal care. It is a healthy way to reduce stress and promote overall wellness. Pre-natal massage can reduce oedema (swelling), relieve carpal tunnel pain, alleviate headaches and sinus congestion, reduce stress on weight-bearing joints, leg cramping, sciatica, encourage blood and lymph circulation, help to relax nervous tension and help relieve depression or anxiety caused by hormonal changes. Pregnancy massage is a nurturing experience for both mother and baby and can help to promote a healthy happy pregnancy as well as labour and recovery period. Pregnancy massage is generally considered safe after the first trimester, any concerns or diagnosed conditions should be discussed with your therapist prior to treatment.
