and emotional. Massage is a wonderful way to relax...

It is a very hands on private lesson, where Wendy will give him the tools to make for a quick, supporting, nurturing labor-techniques that he will have forever.
It is just as important to get massage after birth as it is during pregnancy. During this time, nature sets about undoing in eight weeks, what took nine months to create. During this time, massage can help you with the physical demands of a newborn, speed the healing process of hemorrhoids or an episiotomy, reduce cellulite, if nursing, help with milk letdown or engorged breast, ease muscle aches and fatigue and reduce swelling in the legs, ankles, feet and other areas of your body.
Massage can be helpful and safe during all trimesters of pregnancy. With a few precautions and knowledgeable attention... regular maternity massage may become the favorite part of your prenatal care.
