PRE + POST
Massage is particularly useful to mothers because as their pregnancy evolves, postural changes and added weight can cause discomfort and back pain - which in turn can lead to a lack of rest and chronic fatigue. And after baby’s arrival, massage can help expedite recovery and provide relief from the challenges of early motherhood.
You are spending all your time caring for a tiny growing human being. Who is caring for you? Taking a little time to recharge, to refuel and to treat your achey back will help you care more fully for your family.
Carpal Tunnel is very common pre + post partum. With the increased fluid retention and relaxed ligaments and tissue, carpal tunnel can more easily occur. Massage therapy can help you reduce the fluid retention by using a special technique called 'effleurage' that helps flush fluid retention towards your heart so it can manage it and flush it out of the system.
