Granby Pre-natal Massage
Prenatal Massage adapts the therapeutic massage treatment to the special needs of pregnant women, such as having them in a side lying position rather than on the belly while being worked on, while using lots of pillows to keep mom and baby safe and comfortable. There are certain precautions that need to be taken during a prenatal massage. With all the changes a woman's body goes through during pregnancy, massage is a wonderful treatment and gift!
A woman undergoes many physical changes during pregnancy that can lead to physical and emotional stress that can be effectively addressed with therapeutic massage. The weight of a growing baby places significant strain on the back, neck, shoulders, legs and abdominal muscles and many women also struggle with insomnia during pregnancy that only contributes to pregnancy related physical and emotional issues.
