Massage during pregnancy provides many benefits. It enhances circulation, supporting the work of your heart, and increasing the oxygen and nutrients delivered to your baby. It can relieve the sensation of heaviness and aching in your legs caused by swelling or varicose veins. It can optimize your muscle tone and function, relieve muscle strain and fatigue, and reduce strain on your joints. Pregnancy massage reduces stress and promotes relaxation, contributing to a healthier pregnancy. If you have been told your pregnancy is high risk, please notify the therapist.
