Shiatsu for Pregnancy

During pregnancy it is of vital importance to take care of the baby, from the moment of conception to birth.

During the pregnancy, the woman’s body has to adapt to the new demands, namely the feeding and movement of the baby who is growing.

She may experience a series of symptoms such as:

  • Dizziness and nausea.
  • Emotional ups and downs.
  • Temporary loss of balance.
  • Hemorrhoids, varicose veins and fluid retention.
  • Heavy and tired legs.
  • Pain in the lower back.

Shiatsu helps the future mother at every stage of pregnancy. It stimulates and balances the energy level, increases the vital defences and makes breathing deeper and more relaxed. All this will contribute to the future health of the baby.

Furthermore, a month after having given birth, Shiatsu postpartum can be done to balance the structure of the body and particularly to help the pelvic area to recover its natural position.
