Maternity Massage Therapy
The Maternity massage is performed by a certified prenatal massage therapist. Swedish massage techniques are used to alleviate the pain and discomfort associated with pregnancy. This is a full body massage that can stimulate circulation and reduce back pain related to the stress put on the spinal column and joints during pregnancy. A certified prenatal massage therapist provides relief while concentrating on sensitive areas of the body. Maternity massage serves to stimulate soft tissues for the purpose of reducing fluid collected in swollen joints. This technique accelerates the removal of tissue waste which is carried by the body’s lymph system and has been linked to both physical pain and illness.
