A Pregnancy Massage is a form of bodywork designed specifically for pregnant women. Pregnancy is a time in which a woman’s body endures tremendous stress due to dramatic physical, mental, and emotional changes. Using various techniques specifically for the new mother, the pregnancy massage helps alleviate discomforts experienced throughout the pregnancy. The benefits are profound and include: emotional support, the reduction of joint pain due to extra weight and postural imbalance, improved breathing and relaxation, reduced swelling, relieved aches & pains and relief from uncomfortable digestive issues.
The therapist positions and supports the expectant mother in a proper way during the massage. Second and Third trimester massage is always done by hand with expectant mother in a side-lying position, which is safe for both mom and the baby.
Aruna provides fertility massage for women trying to get pregnant and postpartum pregnancy massage.
