WHAT IS A PREGNANCY MASSAGE TREATMENT?

Pregnancy Massage focuses on the Musculo-skeletal system (using Swedish Massage movements) but avoids the firmer, stimulating techniques such as Tapotement and Percussion. The more relaxing, flowing movements reduce muscle spasm and relieve pain.  As well as affecting each of the physiological systems of the body for example cardiovascular, lymphatic, endocrine, etc.  We position the client on their side or they are seated to massage the back and ensure they are comfortable throughout, with lots of support.
