Expectant mothers can greatly benefit from massage therapy during their pregnancies. This massage is usually done in a side lying position, or with special cushions that allow the mother to lie face down, giving the belly a place to go so as not to put pressure on the baby or internal organs. This is recommended only after the third month of pregnancy or with a doctors recommendation and permission. A gentle nurturing massage to sooth the aches and pains of the mothers body which is being stressed by extra weight and force being put on her. Often mothers are feeling aching feet, back, shoulders and overall body stress. Massage helps so both the mother and the baby will feel the calming effect of mothers natural endorphines (calming hormones) being released, which is shared with the baby. Its a very soothing experience overall. No deep tissue in this massage. Mothers really appreciate this little mini vacation.
