Shiatsu for Pregnancy
Shiatsu is a deeply relaxing and supportive treatment for the mother-to-be. It helps ease muscular discomfort and back pain and relieve symptoms of morning sickness, caused by growth and hormonal changes during pregnancy. Each treatment is individually adapted to each woman’s needs and also benefits sinusitis, headache, low energy, odema and restless legs, varicose veins, haemorroids and other conditions.
Shiatsu is given after the first trimester and is an ideal, safe treatment right through to the birth itself. Shiatsu by its very essence enables people to be more connected with their own energy and during pregnancy with the energy of their baby, in a very direct way. In this sense it can be one of the most powerful therapies for women at this time.
