Having a massage whilst pregnant has got some great benefits. The massage helps to increase circulation bringing fresh oxygenated blood around the body. It also alleviates pressure on the joints from carrying the extra weight and reduced swelling in the legs. Not forgetting the muscles that are working overtime needing to rest and recover and feel ready to carry the extra weight again. Most pregnancy massage concentrates on the back of the body as this is where your muscles are working overtime during pregnancy.
The things to be aware of and to avoid are:
The best way to receive your treatment is on a pregnancy pillow. This allows you to do something you’ve probably not done for a few months.. Lay on your stomach!. The pillow is specially designed so you can lay face down, and you actually feel like you’re not pregnant with all joints relieved. BLISS.
Really pregnancy is a great reason for a pamper!
