PREGNANCY can leave you feeling tired, down, achey and nervous. Give yourself and baby the time out you both need!
Pregnancy Full Body Massage
Pregnancy Massage can have huge benefits not only to the Mother but also to the unborn baby. Massage during pregnancy helps to emotionally and physiologically support the Mother during a time when her body is undergoing significant changes. Massage also helps prepare the body for birth.
Research has shown that pregnancy massage can help alleviate aches and pains in the body and other common health problems associated with birth.
The baby also benefits greatly from pregnancy massage as ‘feel good’ endorphin’s are released by the mother during the massage, these are then passed onto the baby.
