Pregnancy is a special time, but as lovely as seeing the changes in your body taking place as your baby grows, it can bring about many aches and pains. Pregnancy massage can help to alleviate these. Together with promoting a feeling of wellbeing, massage improves circulation and blood flow. It helps to relieve physical and mental fatigue and general discomfort, enhancing muscle and joint function. Regular massage throughout pregnancy can prepare you for labour. All these benefits are passed onto your growing baby. When mum is feeling happy, content, relaxed and in a good state of wellbeing, so is baby. Massage should be avoided during the First Trimester.
