During your pregnancy, your body changes rapidly and you may experience discomfort. A pregnancy massage can reduce the symptoms.
What is Pregnancy massage?
A Pregnancy massage is a gentle massage that focuses on your pregnant body. This means that the massage therapist massages less firmly and will work with gentle strokes and caresses. You can best compare this massage with a Swedish massage, but fully adapted to your pregnancy.
Our therapist will avoid the pressure points that are connected to your uterus. Stimulating certain pressure points could cause the uterus to contract. She will discuss with you which body parts needs extra attention and which areas you would like the therapist to refrain from / stay away from.
Our electric massage table will be heated which can provide extra relaxation and specially adapted pillows will give extra support and relieve your body where necessary. You will lie on your side and/or back during the massage.
