Is this treatment for you? Yes, if you are experiencing muscle aches and pain, swelling and fatigue or just the simple need to relax and enjoy your pregnancy and subsequent birth.
Having a massage during pregnancy is a safe and beautiful experience for women in their second or third trimester, or have recently given birth. It provides a level of relaxation which is often desired by mothers-to-be but is usually quite challenging to attain with the demands pregnancy can have on a woman’s body.
This deeply soothing and relaxing treatment will help prepare the whole body for birth and address the physiological changes and discomfort attributed to carrying and bringing new life into the world. Regular pregnancy massage can help relief neck and back pains, cramping, sciatica, and ease pressure on joints. If you’re experiencing fatigue and insomnia, the deeply soothing long, slow light strokes of this massage will help you to relax, focus and enjoy the remaining weeks of your pregnancy.
Not only will the mother benefit from this massage but research has shown that stress experienced by the mother can also have an effect on the unborn baby. The chemical release of oxytocin and prolactin during the massage has an indirect relaxing effect on the unborn baby.
Treatment will be carried out with the mother on her side throughout the treatment so as not to compress the umbilical vein and to ensure there is no restriction to the baby’s oxygen and nutrients.
This treatment will be specifically tailored to individual needs.
