Pregnancy massage is an adjustment of remedial massage designed to address the specific needs of the body during pregnancy. Changes in a woman’s body during pregnancy can result in varying physical aches and pains as your body shifts off balance and muscles such as your lower back and glutes have to work harder to maintain your structure.

It is a common type of massage for those wanting to release tension from their body.

You will experience long, smooth gliding motions that are rhythmic and flowing, a pressure that is relaxing but not painful. A ultimate aim of a relaxation massage is to relax and soothe you – not to relieve chronic pain.
