A lot of pregnant woman think massage is not safe in pregnancy. This is a shame, because in the hands of a properly trained massage therapist, not only is it safe, it’s amazing. Pregnancy stresses the body in all kinds of ways and a massage is a lovely way to give some love back to those hardworking muscles, ligaments and joints. Then there's the special cushions and pillows that mean even the largest bump-carrying woman can finally get comfortable. And massage isn’t just about muscles. An hour of soothing, nurturing touch can restore the pregnant woman's soul as well as her back.
If you're in Edinburgh, the massages at KnotStressed are pretty amazing. They also do massages for non-pregnant people.
