Myotherapy & Pregnancy

 

Massage provides many benefits for the expecting mother. With extensive body changes and extra tension in the muscular-skeletal system, caused by hormones and a shift in your centre of gravity, having massages can be the difference between a difficult pregnancy and having a great life experience.  It is safe to start treating from 7 weeks pregnant in an unproblematic pregnancy, but in some circumstances, we would recommend waiting until the 1st trimester is complete before starting treatment.   

 

Benefits that a mother may experience

 

  • Reduces swelling in hands, feet, and ankle
