When you are in your second or third trimester of pregnancy, there is nothing quite like a soothing massage to help you relax and take away the aches from your tired back and feet. While a massage can leave anyone feeling relaxed and rejuvenated, the benefits of a massage during pregnancy are twofold. 
 

Firstly, the later stages of pregnancy bring a lot of changes and strains to the body, including postural changes which put pressure on the lower back and many also suffer from swollen feet which can be bothersome. Secondly - relaxing during pregnancy benefits mother and baby, massage can only help achieve that!
 

We often get asked - are massages during pregnancy safe? Prenatal massage after the first trimester is safe, and once you get the go-ahead from your maternity care provider, you can enjoy and benefit from a massage without worrying. Prenatal massages are specific to expectant mothers and work on the areas that trouble you the most during pregnancy. Hence your feet, back, and shoulders are the primary focus. A prenatal massage also focuses on reducing muscle tension, improving blood flow and assisting lymphatic drainage.
 

A prenatal massage should, however, be taken only from trained specialists. Our massage therapists are specifically trained for such massages as these are different and have to be conducted in the right manner to avoid any discomfort or danger to the baby. Certain oils cannot be used during pregnancy, and certain pressure points also need to be avoided, the complete knowledge of which only a qualified therapist will have.
 

At Balima Day Spa, we now offer a relaxing prenatal massage to soothe and comfort expectant mothers in the 2nd & 3rd trimester. Our massage focuses on gently alleviating overworked muscles in the neck, shoulders, back & legs. Get in touch with us for more information and book online.
