Pregnancy Massage

Pregnancy massage relieves the common discomforts of pregnancy!

What should you expect?

Massage will take place in a side lying position, alternating left and right to ensure good blood flow.  Pillows pillows pillows for comfort.  There will also be a super quick check for abnormal swelling(pitting edema) and blood clots.  It's not a deep tissue massage, but with decent pressure and lighter on abdomen, legs and feet.

All followed by a light snack and refreshment!
