Aromatherapy Pre & Postnatal Massage

HypnoBirthingThe Pregnancy Massage is suitable during pregnancy after the first trimester. The client lies on her side, supported by pillows.  Pregnancy and Postnatal Massage has many benefits including improved circulation, tension and stress release, and stronger body/mind connection which is very important for labour.
