Pregnancy is a wonderful time when your body is growing a brand new life inside you but it can be accompanied by discomfort and muscle aches and pains.
With your growing belly there is an increased weight shift towards the front. This can tip your pelvis forward causing stress on your lower back and pelvis. Added to this, due to increased breast size and growing baby bump there can be upper back pain. The growing baby places stress on your pelvic floor and impacts on your core strength.
These general musculo-skeletal changes during pregnancy can be relieved and managed safely with massage by a fully trained and experienced masseuse.
- Pregnancy massage is performed while lying on your side – so no shortness of breath or light headedness.
- Pregnancy massage is gentle with no joint manipulation and will improve your mobility and blood flow.
