I use the principles that are based on Swedish massage techniques. Swedish massage has been proven to help reduce muscle tension and it can improve blood flow and lymphatic drainage. The main purpose of Swedish massage is to increase the blood’s oxygen flow and assist in toxin removal from the muscles. This is achieved through mild pressure applied to the muscle groups of the body.
The Swedish massage involves rolling, tapping, kneading, percussion, vibration and massage oil that protects skin from friction.

Prenatal massage is different from regular massage in the manner that for pregnancy massage, the comfort and safety of the mother is a priority. Instead of lying on your back or stomach, you will be positioned to lie on your side with the support of bolsters or pillows or padding.
