Many women suffer from back aches during their pregnancies. They try to adjust to the partially added body weight by unconsciously adapting to an unfavorable or awkward posture. Pain in the lower abdomen can also cause problems with the spine. Back pain can be relieved by a Thai-Yoga Massage. The massage stretches and strengthens the muscles in the back and prepares the body for labor. At the same time the Thai-Yoga Massage has a calming effect on the unborn child.
Most massage techniques require pregnant women to lie on their belly and therefore fail as an effective treatment method. The Thai-Yoga-Massage is a great alternative as it can be done in a supine or side lateral position. You comfortably lay on your back, supported by pillows on a floor mat surrounded by a pleasant and calming atmosphere with relaxing music. This position allows for treatment of the legs, arms, feet and the entire back.
By acupressure along the energy lines the body is treated and gently stretched as far as the current situation and well being allows. During treatment you will find yourself becoming more and more calm and relaxed. You can now focus entirely on your child. A close connection and harmony between mother and child develops.
Thai-Yoga Massage is also recommended to correct possible posture problems which resulted from pregnancy and for tightening and strengthening of the skin after birth.
