Baby massage is a lovely way to bond with your baby. More than that baby massage is beneficial in so many ways for your baby's different systems and for yourself as a parent or carer.
If you are 14+ weeks pregnant and there are no signs of complications, it is safe for you to have a massage.?Pregnancy 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.
Therapeutic (Swedish) massage has been used for centuries as an instinctive way to relieve muscle tension and to relax the body and mind.
As a part of nature, aromatic essential oils are tools of healing and combined with the soothing power of massage they have enormous therapeutic benefits to the body.
If you have been diagnosed with or suspect you may have a pre-existing medical condition you should consult your GP for advice, diagnosis and treatment and always inform your health professional before starting any alternative or additional therapies, treatments or making any major changes in your diet or exercise programme.
