Massage Therapy and Pregnancy
Pregnancy is a very exciting time, but can also be demanding on a woman’s body. The changing body brings with it aches and pains, including back pain, leg and foot pain, and other muscle pains. Massage therapy can improve overall prenatal health for pregnant women, relaxing tense muscle, improving mobility or easing sore spots, and should be considered an important option to consider along with regular prenatal care.
