Prenatal or pregnancy massage can work wonders to help soothe and relax the pregnant mom. Soft effleurage of upward strokes on legs and thighs gently boost circulation, relieves, prevents and reduces puffy ankles, muscle cramps and helps with varicose veins.
As prenatal massage is gentle and soothing, many pregnant moms have found relief from high blood pressure and insomnia. For more advanced pregnancies, a gentle massage with circular motions on the abdomen and pelvic area is allowed. This movement helps to position baby and brings relief to the pelvic muscles of the pregnant mom. Moms will be positioned and properly supported with pillows and padding to ensure comfort and safety for the pregnant mom and her unborn baby. Prenatal massage is recommended for moms who are more than 4 months pregnant.
