Pregnancy massage also called prenatal massage, is becoming increasingly popular with expectant mothers. A massage therapist can be trained in the proper way to position and support the woman's body during the massage. They can modify techniques and avoid specific pressure points throughout all trimesters of an expecting mother. A prenatal massage is used to reduce stress, decrease swelling, relieve aches and pains, and reduce anxiety and depression. Prenatal massage is customized to a woman's individual needs and pressure requirements to safely relax both mother and baby.
