Awaiting the birth of a new baby is one of the most exciting experiences in life. Nurturing mother and child during this amazing time of change, development and hope with a prenatal massage is a great way to help ease the discomfort that comes with pregnancy by alleviating stress, soothing achy muscles, easing cramps and assisting with lymphatic flow, which can help decrease puffiness in target areas. Mature adults also appreciate the effects of massage as pain from arthritis, injuries and chronic tension are kneaded away.
