Expectant moms experience unique physical and emotional changes that occur as a result of increased weight, shifting posture, and adjusting hormone levels. Massage can allow pregnant moms to unwind during this time. It can also alleviate the resulting discomfort and other pregnancy-related symptoms.
Expert massage therapist and instructor, Meade Steadman, demonstrates step-by-step how to provide therapeutic massage techniques that focus on the special needs of the mother-to-be as she goes through the different trimesters. He demonstrates a full body massage in different positions: prone, supine, semi-reclined, and side lying. Meade also discusses benefits and contraindications, postural analysis, bolsters, positioning and draping, and fetal development.
