There’s no denying that pregnancy is a beautiful experience, but equally so the aches and pains that often go hand-in-hand with this transformational process are ever-present.

Unlike some other types of massage, which can be a little intense for a pregnant woman or someone enduring pain, Shiatsu is softer and more holistic approach to tackling symptoms – but being softer doesn’t mean that it is any less effective.
