Never more than during pregnancy is nurture, comfort and gentle touch so yearned for.
Pregnancy Massage with essential oils offers a chance for mums-to-be to snuggle up with comfy pillows while being gently massaged with safe and supportive strokes during each trimester of your pregnancy.
Gentle strokes, without essential oils may be helpful to:
Settle your body in early pregnancy.
Manage your feelings about your pregnancy
Find a place for some essential relaxation
Certain Essential Oils, under guidance, may be useful for nausea and vomiting.
After 12 weeks, a safe dilution of essential oils can be introduced, as you lie comfortably tucked up for your massage. This may help with:
