Pregnancy can be especially hard on your body over the course of nine months. Carrying the extra weight from the baby can lead to aches and pains in places that you never knew existed.

Ask you friends who they use for their massages. It can be hard to find a massage therapist that you are comfortable with, but knowing that someone you know uses and trusts them you will feel that much better about it. Ask as many people as you can before you decide on one to try.

 

If you're getting a massage, see to it that you had a light meal beforehand. If you eat too much before your massage, you run the risk of being uncomfortable and ruining the experience. You need to eat something healthy in order to have an enjoyable time.

Asian massages are known to help relax the body. One not-so-common, but very relaxing Asian massage is called the Indonesian-Javanese massage. With this method, the therapist will use both their hands and knuckles to get so deep into the skin. This will help your muscles relax if they were tense.

 

If your child is suffering from colic, a gentle massage may alleviate some of their suffering. Slightly warm some lavender baby lotion and gently massage your infants back, legs, hands and feet. This will help relax your child making them less fussy if they are suffering from stomach cramps caused by colic.

 

Attempt to stay calm and quiet during a massage. There aren't many things worse than when you are trying to relive stress and relax only to have your masseuse chatting incessantly.
