Pregnancy massage focuses on addressing the special needs of both expecting women and new mothers. Using specially-designed cushions and side-lying positioning, expectant mothers are fully supported without putting unnecessary pressure on the abdominal region. Swedish, deep tissue and acupressure work to alleviate the discomforts that are often associated with pregnancy including (but not limited to): edema, sacral pain, hip discomfort, neck and shoulder pain, abdominal discomfort and sleep problems. Postnatal bodywork helps to integrate women into their new bodies while addressing the aches and stresses that come with being a new mother.
