Why pregnancy massage?

The months during pregnancy are a special time for mothers. They are also a time of tremendous physical change as well as adjustments in emotion and thought. These changes can create feelings of joy and anticipation, but can also cause stress and uncertainty.

Massage during these months can help create a better physical and emotional balance for the mother and can translate directly to a more comfortable growing experience for baby. Prenatal massage is specifically tailored to enhance the experience of pregnancy on an external physical level as well as on a internal, hormonal level.

Robin has received advanced training and certification in pregnancy and postpartum massage. Robin has thorough understanding of the body’s physical changes, safety issues for massage during pregnancy, proper positioning and areas that must be treated differently or avoided.
