Post-Natal Massage in Washington D.C.
Bringing new life into the world is a wonderful thing but it also puts a lot of strain on the body. Postnatal massage sessions are tailored to help with postpartum issues which every mother deals with.
The body goes through a rapid transition after giving birth with changes in your hormones, body shape and center of gravity. Massage eases these stresses by relaxing the muscles that have been strained during the prenatal and natal process. Feeling relaxed increases a more balanced hormone production, realigns the muscles and re-focus your center of gravity. The therapy is also designed to increase circulation which contributes to the reduction of postpartum swelling and incorporate stretches to allow for a more lasting effect.
