In addition, Prenatal Massage can reduce anxiety, decrease symptoms of depression and headaches and supplement your total prenatal care.  Restrictions may apply.

Massaging the pressure points in the feet and hands allows the nerve network to boost the immune system and improve the physical body.  Reflexology has been shown to relieve stress, pain reduction and headaches.
