Lying on your tummy when pregnant is definitely not a luxury but having the pleasure of a massage still can be.
Massage can be enormously beneficial to helping to soothe jangled nerves and alleviate common complaints such as backache, tension in the shoulders and aching legs and feet. I do a lot of work around the hip area to relieve tightness in gluteals which in turn relieve pain in the lower back and to relieve any SPD (Symphisis pubis disorder) pains.
Massaging of the tummy of course is optional but has been reported to calm active and kicking babies. It increases the blood flow to the fetus giving them additional oxygen which is always a good!
After childbirth, new mothers need to be nurtured themselves and massage is a perfect way to relax the mind and body, renew energy, encourage deep sleep, and help the body regains its shape.

"Gina has magic fingers!!
A good friend recommended Gina to me in my second trimester, I only wish I had found out about her earlier! I was suffering from terrible and constant morning sickness, I lost a lot of weight and felt truly awful.... Gina is qualified to perform reflexology during pregnancy and it really helped me, I noticed a difference in my nausea and vomiting from the first treatment session, eventually with her help the nausea and vomiting stopped altogether!
