The benefits of massage therapy to the human body are well researched and well known. Relieving stress, anxiety, muscle tension and pain whilst promoting blood flow to muscles and feel good hormones to the body, massage therapy dates back to the dawn of time and for good reason.

Pregnancy is a truly remarkable time in a woman’s life.  As our baby grows, our bodies undergo a range of physical and emotional changes. With those changes though can come tension, pain and discomfort.

What mothers need to be aware of though is that some therapies could potentially harm her or the baby. Along with avoiding certain foods, certain therapies need to be carefully considered before undertaking them.
