Activate Massage Clinic is now offering pregnancy massage!!
Pregnancy massage is the prenatal use of massage therapy to support the physiologic, structural, and emotional well-being of mother and fetus. Recent research suggests massage therapy may provide benefits throughout a woman's pregnancy, as well as during labor, childbirth and post-partum. Massage may also play a role in reducing pain intensity, increasing a woman's sense of control and improving satisfaction with the childbirth experience. There are studies that reveal hand and foot massage helped women undergoing caesarean delivery reduce postoperactive pain, anxiety and stress. Massage can also improve postpartum sleep.
