Shiatsu Talks: Shiatsu & Pregnancy
Updated: Sep 17, 2020
In such a special, but also delicate moment as #pregnancy, we all wonder what is best for the baby and the mother.
When we talk about physical manipulation especially there is a lot of fear around it that could prevent an expecting mother from enjoying and much needed treatment with many beneficial effects (for the whole family!).
The question is: Is #Shiatsu safe and advised during pregnancy?
The answer is: YES!
The only time you should not use Shiatsu or massage is when you need emergency medical treatment and extra care must be taken during the first 12 weeks of pregnancy.
Medical reasons aside, a Shiatsu treatment is generally a way to reconnect with your body, release #stress, #anxiety and worries. It is a tool to train the body and the mind to be fit and adaptable to change and the outer environment, and what's a greater body change than pregnancy?!
It's also a chance to treat yourself and experience Shiatsu differently with a warmer, caring, upholding and reinvigorating session.
Shiatsu is for everyone.
