Pregnancy massage offers many benefits to women who are suffering from the backaches and pains associated with having to carry a child for nine months. But pregnancy reflexology goes one step further, using specific pressure points within the body to trigger certain releases that are associated with the very beginning stages of childbirth.
Using acupressure to induce labor allows you to start the labor process from the comfort of your home, which causes the cervix to enlarge and the few contractions that lead to the birth of the baby. By starting this process early, you can have complete and safe control over the early stages of labor.
Another treatment to keep in mind during prenatal massage is your position. Since you cannot lie on your stomach, you are usually placed on your side with a supportive pillow.

While there are special tables that can accommodate a pregnant belly, most therapists prefer to rest by your side.
Pregnant women are very sensitive and massage therapists need to be careful during the massage so as not to harm the baby in any way. The intensity of the massage is also very important to ensure this result.
Many women are afraid of the long labor process. However, many want one that is as natural as possible and without the use of the epididymis or other drugs. During childbirth, there are massage techniques that shorten the birthing process as well as relieve pain and anxiety.
