Thai massage for pregnant women is a gentle, relaxing variation on the traditional Thai massage . It is performed in a comfortable position for her, lying on her side. A neutral oil is gently applied, with no essential oils, which are forbidden during pregnancy. During a Thai massage for pregnant women, the masseuse focuses on areas of tension and energy lines known as "sen". The aim is to stimulate the body's "chi" energy and energize the whole body.
There are certain parts of the body that contain acupuncture points that can trigger uterine contractions, so the pressure must be reduced. Throughout the session, the masseuse will favour long contacts and light touches, especially on the belly.
The objective is to accompany the mother-to-be during her pregnancy so that she can live it as comfortably as possible. With less pain, less fatigue, more energy and less stress. The goal is to bring her a general well-being where the beneficial effects will also be felt by the baby.
For whom: For pregnant women, prenatal massage is provided from the 5th month of pregnancy. For young mothers, postnatal massage is recommended between 3 and 6 months after delivery.
