Pregnancy puts some big demands on your body! It's normal to experience all kinds of aches, pains and symptoms resulting from the body's changing physiology and emotional landscape as each trimester progresses. How can massage help? Appropriate, pregnancy massage can ease and/or alleviate many of the aches, pains and physical discomforts common during this special time. It's a soothing massage that helps to relieve specific muscular tensions as well as emotional stresses. It supports the mother's whole being, and this in turn supports a positive womb environment for the unborn child's optimal development.
There is ample evidence to support the many benefits of pregnancy massage. Some of these include:
- Supports optimal foetal growth & development
- Release of muscular tension
- Stimulation of circulation, inducing deep relaxation
- Stress reduction and relaxation to promote calm and well-being
- Reduces discomfort from oedema, varicose veins and elevated blood pressure
- Emotionally supports the mother
This gentle massage is carried out in the side-lying position with plenty of pillow support for maximum comfort and relaxation. Generally I work first on the back, shoulders, head and neck then arms before moving onto some leg and foot work. I appreciate every client is unique, so you can always specify which areas you would like special attention paid to, or possibly even avoided all together.
