Allowing yourself to be pampered with a massage when your pregnant is one of the most wonderful self-care choices you can make, and you will find it is remarkably stress reducing and overall wellness promoting. Massage relieves many of the normal discomforts experienced during pregnancy, such as leg cramps, backaches, stiff necks, sore hips and swelling. In addition, massage for pregnant women reduces stress on weight-bearing joints, encourages the circulation of blood and lymph, helps to relax nervous tension — which aids in better sleep — and can help relieve depression or anxiety caused by hormonal changes.

Ayurveda approaches health from a whole-system perspective, treating the root cause of imbalance rather than treating the symptoms of disease. When the root cause is corrected, symptoms disappear. With the belief that all answers and medicine are found in nature, Ayurveda believes that health is the expression of a balanced relationship between our bodies, minds, spirits, and environment.
