What Is Prenatal Massage?
Prenatal massage is a type of massage therapy which is quite similar to normal or regular massage. The only difference is, prenatal massage is for pregnant women and is customized according to their needs and changing body shape. A massage therapist knows the spots that are usually sore and swollen in a pregnant woman’s body. Therapist also knows all the massage modalities to take care of all the aches and pains.
When you have a baby growing inside you, it changes many things in your body. Your body needs to deal with a lot which creates stress on different parts of your body such as back, neck, shoulders, etc. Prenatal massage helps you in dealing with aches and pain when you are pregnant.
