Post Natal Massage

Why is it important to continue massage postnatally?

womens-healthDuring the postnatal period, your body is going through big changes and you need to be careful not to over stimulate it. The body has just experienced one of the most emotional and exhausting athletic events in your life. The time it takes for your body to return to normal differs for each individual woman. It all depends on factors such as: the type of pregnancy you had, your general health and the type of birth you experienced. However specialised massage and bodywork treatment can commence immediately after giving birth. The treatment is designed specifically for your individual needs.
