Synopsis: A Handbook for Relieving the Discomforts of Pregnancy

Massage is a sensuous, relaxing, and loving treatment that has the added bonus of being especially good for you. It’s the perfect way to reduce stress and promote general well-being. During pregnancy, your body is undergoing many changes, some of them stressful and discomforting. Mother Massage, by licensed massage therapist Elaine Stillerman, is a beautifully illustrated guide to help eliminate some of these adverse effects. Designed to be used either alone or with a partner, Mother Massage provides techniques for a variety of massages, including full body massage, preparation for labor and birthing massage, massage during the postpartum and nursing stages, and infant massage. These techniques are explained in step-by-step, illustrated detail. You’ll also learn special massages for treating such discomforts as:

• Backaches
• Breast Soreness
• Charley Horse and Leg Cramps
• Headaches
• Heartburn
• Fatigue
