Pregnancy Massage: Pregnancy should be a time of excitement and happiness, but for some expectant mums both the physical & emotional changes can lead to increased exhaustion.
With this in mind it is important to take some time out, some “you time” to spoil yourself during and throughout your pregnancy..
Massage during pregnancy can help ease discomforts such as back pain and aching joints, in addition to helping you reduce stress levels. Lower stress level, less discomforts means a happier mummy & a happier baby
Here at the TSL, Helen our fully qualified Pregnancy Massage Therapist, and Pregnancy Massage Trainer, recommends you wait until after your first trimester to fully reap the benefits of a massage. Also if you’ve had any complications during your pregnancy we would ask you to check with your GP that massage is ok for you, before you book in.
