The miracle of life is an amazing process. While it is a beautiful and rewarding process, it can also be a complicated and challenging time for a mother and her body.
Naturally, there are a lot of discomforts that accompany pregnancy. It is normal to experience back pain, neck pain, and stiffness from being so front heavy. Swelling and headaches are other common occurrences when pregnant. Relieve your body from the tension and stress that carrying a child can cause.

It is important to talk with your therapist about any discomforts that you are experiencing. Massage can help with a variety of aches and pains. Massage stimulates chemicals in your body that fight the experience of pain. Pregnancy massage also releases the tension in your muscles from carrying a significant amount of extra weight.
