Ante natal and post natal massages by trained masseurs are customised for each individual woman.”
“In the antenatal period - a massage when you're pregnant can be a wonderful way to ease an aching back, stiff shoulders and sore hips. It can also pep up your mood and get those feel-good, pain-relieving endorphins flowing around your body, leaving you relaxed and refreshed,” she said. “The leg treatment reduces water retention and provides an instant lightness and freshness to tired and swollen feet while increasing circulation and restoring energy to fatigued legs.”
“Post delivery period is very vital as well therefore the post natal massages and treatments focus on lymphatic drainage and deep massage to reduce ‘saddle bags’ Special massages to relieve tension in the neck and shoulders, back fatigue, weakness in abdominal muscles and overall body strain post-delivery. Skin care treatments such as exfoliation re-texturises, clarifies, smoothens and refines skin texture,” added Dr Punam. – TradeArabia News Service
