Pregnancy & Massage
It was by accident that I began doing pre- and post-natal massage. I have seen one of my regular clients after one pregnancy and into another. It's gratifying to work with these women as they create a new life. But, oh, the lower back pain they suffer! And the upper back after birth, carrying the newborn. My body mechanics need to adjust, working with my client in a side-lying position, bolstered to make sure she's comfortable. They say the baby can feel the clockwise gentle effleurage on the mother's belly. How wonderful! Looking forward to my next session!
