Pregnancy Massage

Pregnancy can be a joyous time for a mother-to-be. However, the changes in a woman’s body and natural fears and anxiety can also be very stressful, both physically and emotionally. Pregnancy Massage has a profound ability to decrease stress as well as prevent or minimise many of the common symptoms and discomforts of pregnancy.

Regular massage therapy sessions can mean the difference between a comfortable, relaxed pregnancy and one defined by miserable aches and pains. Massage is especially useful because pregnant women are often unable to take many medications that are normally used to manage common problems. Massage can help manage these aches and pains and is completely safe for both the mother and fetus.

According to a study published in the Journal of Psychosomatic Obstetrics and Gynaecology, the benefits extend beyond just making mum to be feel good. Researchers found that for women who received regular massage, there were fewer complications both during pregnancy and afterwards, including fewer premature births.

Our certified Pregnancy Massage CPPD Workshop will enable you to work safely and effectively with pregnancy massage clients.
