Postnatal massage therapy also known as post pregnancy massage therapy is for women who have been pregnant in the previous 12 months. This massage therapy combines soothing relaxation massage techniques with deep tissue massage to promote rest and relaxation, the perfect way to recovery and re-cooperate from pregnancy. The main therapeutic focus of treatments is to address any problem areas which may have developed in the body as a result of pregnancy or carrying and caring for your growing baby. Warm oils, a heated plinth and carefully chosen essential oils combined with a tailored massage for each new mother will leave your feeling rejuvenated after this treatment. Massage therapy is a popular complementary health therapy which has many health benefits.
