Nurture the mother, nurture the child. Pregnancy is a wonderful experience, but it can also be uncomfortable at times. Massage therapy for the childbearing year has many benefits for the mother as well as the baby within. First, it is an essential way to relieve common aches and discomforts of pregnancy, and secondly, it can prepare your body for labor, birth, and postpartum. Receiving the passive support of massage isn’t just luxurious, it can greatly improve a sense of calm, reduce anxiety, help with sleep – it’s pretty much a necessity! Take advantage of the massage and therapy sessions we offer at our Castle Hill Fitness spa, and let us help you with your pregnancy journey.
Massage therapists that work with pregnant clients have completed continuing education and have often worked as doulas for mothers. Our pregnancy massages will help alleviate stress and physical pain as well as provide therapeutic healing for your mind, body, and spirit.
Before booking your appointment we recommend consulting with your doctor.
