During pregnancy and following the birth of a child the mother's body needs special care. Massage therapy can help you adjust to the changes that occur during pregnancy and relieve some of the discomfort that you may experience, such as low back pain and edema.

The relaxing effects of massage therapy are very useful in preparation for labor and delivery, and following the birth we recommend bodywork to restore the pelvis to its proper alignment and ease the shoulder tension that results from nursing and carrying the child in your arms. Massage is also a wonderful way to care for and nurture the father and father-to-be.
