Are you feeling the pinch of the economic downturn at the moment? Now is a great time to focus on what you do best and to get that message across to your potential clientele.

As massage therapists and body workers, we dedicate most of our energy to others, often at the expense of our own health and wellbeing. Being a therapist means we can end up with a great deal of physical, mental and/or emotional stress, possible injury, burn out and even a need to leave the industry for a time or permanently.

Pregnancy Massage

Pregnancy massage involves using massage therapy techniques to help you feel well while you are pregnant. Massage can be especially useful to ease discomfort during pregnancy, when some medicines and other treatments are not safe to use. Pregnancy can put a lot of stress on your back, shoulders, neck and abdominal muscles. Pregnancy massage is designed to relieve some of the problems that are common during pregnancy. It can relieve stress and reduce swelling in your arms and legs. A qualified therapist will know which areas to target, and which to avoid. Massage in pregnancy can involve many different massage techniques. It is usually a gentle massage. Pregnancy massage is not the same as perineal massage.
