Every woman who has ever been pregnant will tell you that there are various aches, pains, and bouts of anxiety that suddenly appear throughout pregnancy. None of these are very comfortable, and no one’s symptoms and issues are the same. What may work for someone may not, in fact, work for another person.
Pre-natal Thai massage is a combination of pre-natal massage and Thai massage. This modality has its roots in yoga, so it maintains and increases flexibility, which will be very helpful during and after delivery. There is also a stretching element, which assists in flexibility and balance. And, the head, neck, and shoulders will be nurtured, reducing anxiety, headaches, and other annoying issues that accompany pregnancy.
The book has a step by step guide, complete with illustrations, of routines in the seated, side-lying, and semi-reclining positions. There is also a self-care guide that clients can use to keep themselves feeling great in between appointments. The list of contraindications will help therapists make decisions based on each individual client’s symptoms and issues.
Although there are photographs to illustrate points, Ms. Hazzard explains the routines using terminology that is easy to follow and understand. Health providers that can add new dimensions to help alleviate the discomforts of pregnancy may result in new clients. Pregnancy is not a passing fad; it’s here to stay. Women will always be happy to discover new ways to make their pregnancies healthier and easier to handle.
