During pregnancy women’s bodies go through many changes. Massage during the second and third trimester is very helpful in helping women cope with both the physical and emotional changes that happen. It can often relieve many of the common aches and pain associated with pregnancy, such as back and neck pain, sciatica, muscle cramps, swelling, painful feet. It can calm the nervous system, promoting a better night sleep.
As the pregnancy progresses, the mother's body releases hormones, called relaxins, that increase ligament and tendon elasticity, causing the joints of the body to become unstable. During pregnancy unstable joints and changes in abdominal size can lead to numerous structural imbalances in the body. Massage can help support these imbalances.

Postpartum massage can start as early as 3 days after delivery, a very gentle massage at this stage. It helps with postnatal depression, relieves the trauma the body went through, soothes sore muscles, help blood and lymphatic circulation and nourishes the mother on all levels. Often the sacrum has been slightly misplaced during labour and all the surrounding tendons, ligaments, muscles and connective tissue need some help to regain balance again. Massage can be very helpful to regain normal posture.
