Massage for moms
When mom gets a massage, the baby gets touched too. Brought to you by JOHNSON’S® Pure Tissue Oil

The aches and pains of pregnancy will have you longing for a caring touch. And a gentle massage is good for your health too. Recent studies conducted by the Touch Research Institute have proven that massage during pregnancy has benefits for both mother and baby:
  • decreases obstetric and postnatal complications
  • decreases anxiety and stress hormones
  • reduces sleep disturbance
  • lowers level of leg and back pain.

Sounds good – and your baby benefits too. Massage during pregnancy has been found to decrease obstetric and postnatal complications and helps to lower premature birth rates. Be careful that you don’t just grab any aromatherapy oil, though, as some can be unsuitable to use when you’re pregnant. The massage should also be light, not too vigorous.

JOHNSON’S® Pure Tissue Oil with natural soybean oil is perfect for use throughout your pregnancy. It’ll soothe away the itchiness that many pregnant women feel on their tummies. And it helps reduce the appearance of scars and stretch marks, keeping your skin firm and elastic as it stretches. Click here for more on JOHNSON’S® Pure Tissue Oil.
