Pre-natal/Pregnancy massage has an important role to play in pregnancy support. Pregnant women often suffer from neck, shoulder, back, hip and foot pain due to hormonal changes and the increasing physical load. Massage helps to reduce tension and pain, headaches, leg cramps, insomnia, fluid retention, stress and fatigue.
Designed around the changing contours and specific pressure points of the pregnant body, this treatment uses a Belly Pillow, a specialty pillow designed for pregnant women to allow lying in a fully supported and comfortable manor.
