Pregnancy exerts an incredible stress on the body. Its discomforts include a stiff neck, leg cramps, headaches, and backaches, all because the additional weight of the baby pressures these muscles and inflames the nerves. This is why pregnant women need some time to relax and find respite from all the physical and even emotional stress inherent to carrying a baby. One way to do this is to receive a prenatal massage in Folsom.
This therapy can range from a full body Swedish massage to a light massage that can include reflexology, circulatory work, or cranial sacral therapy. As long as you’re not experiencing a high-risk pregnancy, prenatal massage is safe and beneficial.
Relief from Symptoms
Prenatal massage aims to ease the symptoms caused by pregnancy. For instance, a massage on the head, neck, and shoulders can alleviate headaches by relaxing muscle spasms and trigger points.
