More on Prenatal/Postpartum Massage:
Pregnancy is a time of major structural, physiological, psychological, spiritual, and social change in a woman's life. Massage therapy is an appropriate form of adjunctive health care for women in both normal and high-risk pregnancies.
Postpartum massage can help the body return to its pre-pregnancy condition and relieve the stress of caring for a newborn. It can increase recovery by bringing relief from sore muscles and relaxing the mother. Abdominal massage helps shrink the uterus and relieve subcutaneous scar tissue. Connective tissue and scar massage techniques can be used to facilitate healing from Cesarean Sections.
More on Infant Massage:
Loving touch expresses emotional affection toward your baby and will assist in fulfilling your baby's need for physical contact. Both emotional and physical benefits from an infant massage will help your baby achieve all around well-being.
Infant massage encourages muscular coordination, helping your baby to open and straighten his or her arms and legs instead of returning to the fetal position during the early months.
