The mother's struggle after giving birth takes a long time. One of them is to restore a fresher and more relaxed body shape.Because it cannot be denied, after birth the body will feel weak because of the energy released.The muscles that feel are usually tense, especially for women who give birth normally.This condition is of course intolerable, special care is needed to restore the mother's body to recovery.Solus Per Aqua (SPA) postpartum is one way to restore body shape.Solus Per Aqua (SPA) massage can be useful to improve blood circulation and restore the body to be firmer and make the body more comfortable and relaxed.This study aims to determine the Solus Per Aqua (SPA) Massage in mothers can reduce complaints during postpartum.
