Pregnancy Massage

The Circulatory System of the Body is under Enormous Stress during Pregnancy, with Blood Volume Increasing up to 60 percent.  As the Uterus enlarges and presses deep into the pelvic bowl, venous return to the heart is hampered by the pressure applied to major blood vessels, increasing blood pressure and causing Edema (Swelling of the Joints and Tissues).

Pregnancy Massage Supports the Return of Blood to the Heart and Increases Circulation of Blood and Lymph, Helping to keep Blood Pressure Normal and Reducing the Occurrence of Edema.  The Enhanced Blood and Lymph flow also increases the Nutrition and Elimination of Wastes for both the Mother and her Baby.
