Massage therapy has many benefits for those pregnant. It alleviates tension due to postural and weight shifts, increases the positive hormones associated with relaxation and bonding, and reduces stress hormones -- all of which can benefit health of mother and baby. Moving lymph fluid and improving circulation is another great attribute which helps reduce swelling.
Finding a massage therapist that is knowledgeable and trained in prenatal massage is important. My training allows me to work with you to determine the best and safest treatment for you and your pregnancy.
