Conception – Massage is particularly useful for enhancing fertility by clearing toxins and stagnant energy.
1st Trimester – Prenatal massage offers a nurturing and soothing touch when fatigue and nausea can be severe.
2nd Trimester -Prenatal massage care becomes essential for relieving the physical tensions and stress of the second trimester when energy levels return and baby’s growth is more noticeable.
3rd Trimester – Prenatal massage is healing and restorative by aiding with sleep, alleviating headaches, back, hip and neck pain, sciatic issues and preparation for birthing. Prenatal massage helps encourage circulation of fluid, which can become painfully lodged in the hands and feet. Prenatal massage promotes a deep, meditative, relaxed state, which is a powerful tool for achieving a natural labor. For most women, prenatal massage during the 3rd trimester is essential to coping with the physical and emotional stress of carrying the baby.
