One of my favorite populations to work with is postpartum moms. Childbirth and the stresses of breastfeeding and caring for a small child can contribute to stress, and chronic pain for new moms. Examples are:
-chronic low back pain after an epidural
-chronic tailbone pain after labor
-numbness and tingling in the hands
-sore arms from carrying the baby
-sore neck and shoulders from nursing, cosleeping or babywearing
New mothers go through a lot AND they can benefit greatly from massage, for a chance to be nurtured, to actually feel taken care of after many sleepless days and nights caring for someone else.
A massage is the best thing to do for themselves to recharge, get some long overdue rest and pain relief.
