Pregnancy massage is a massage therapy specifically tailored for the expectant mother’s needs. This type of massage can reduce stress, ease back pain, decrease swelling in the arms and legs, improve circulation and relieve aches and pains in muscles and joints. Positioning during a pregnancy massage is critical to the safety and well-being of both the mother and the baby she is carrying. The mother- to- be will be turned on her side for the duration of the treatment and extra pillows and padding will be provided in abundance for her comfort. Amongst many benefits, pregnancy massage has been found to help alleviate:
Muscle tension
Muscle spasm & cramping
Sciatic Pain
Swelling/ Oedema Back
Neck and shoulder discomfort caused by hormonal and postural changes
It can also help improve:
Quality of Sleep
Reduce headaches
Relieve heartburn
Balance mood-swings and help depression.
Please note: Although massage has never been associated with an increased risk of miscarriage, Pregnancy Massage can be performed only AFTER the first trimester. During any other time of pregnancy, verbal or written notice from your GP/Midwife is required before receiving Pregnancy Massage.
