Prenatal massage is therapeutic bodywork that focuses on the special needs of the mother-to-be as her body goes through the dramatic changes of pregnancy. It enhances the function of muscles and joints, improves circulation and general body tone, and relieves mental and physical fatigue. Pregnancy massage may help relieve some of the aches and pains of pregnancy. But it does have some risks; it isn’t suitable for every person or every pregnancy.

The therapist must take precautions and make sure that if there are any serious complications it must be discussed with your Doctor before having the massage done”
