Pregnancy Massage/Prenatal Massage

Pregnancy Massage is performed by a trained massage specialist; many methods of massage are both effective and safe prenatally, and during labour and postpartum periods of women’s pregnancies.

Prenatally, specific techniques can reduce pregnancy discomforts and concerns and enhance the physiological and emotional well-being of both mother and foetus. Skilled, appropriate touch can facilitate labour, shorten labour times and ease pain and anxiety.

In the postpartum period, specialized techniques rebalance structure, physiology, and emotions of the new mother, and may help her to bond with and care for her infant. Practitioners have specialized, advanced training in the anatomy, physiology, complications, precautions, and contraindications.
