Many clients have a more intense experience with a deep tissue massage, but also feel that it is more beneficial, because it addresses deep-seated muscle pains.

PRENATAL AND INFANT MASSAGE
When a woman is pregnant, getting a massage is a good way to reduce the stress of pregnancy. Studies have shown that Pregnancy Massage can improve the woman’s mood, ease the pain, decrease depression and anxiety and reduce the risk of pregnancy complications. Since the stages of pregnancy introduce large hormonal changes in a woman’s body, this can often cause fatigue, irritability, nausea and water retention. Since the fetus is continually growing throughout the pregnancy, the body’s hormones cause ligaments and tendons to relax to make room for the growing child, which can cause numerous muscular aches and pains to develop. These can be alleviated with pregnancy massage.
