Pregnancy massage is similar to regular massage in that it aims to relax tense muscles, ease sore spots, improve circulation and mobility, and generally make you feel good. However, pregnancy and post-natal massage treatments are very client specific. Our experienced massage therapists (Rebecca, Sarah and Emma) will consider your every need to create a treatment that is tailored just for you, to help treat and relieve all ailments of pregnancy and the post-natal period.
Carrying a baby inside you changes your centre of gravity and puts a lot of physical stress on your back, neck, abdominal muscles, and shoulders. Pregnancy also produces the hormone relaxin, which loosens the ligaments in your pelvis making it less stable, and changes your posture, pulling your pelvis forward. Add to that the extra weight you are carrying and you may find you have an achy lower back or sore hip joints.
Pregnancy massage can help to
Relieve muscular aches and pains
Promote good sleep
Reduce oedema especially in the feet, ankles and hands
Relieve restless legs
Boost energy levels
Relieve anxiety and encourage relaxation
Your massage therapist will determine which parts of your body need most attention and plan her treatment accordingly. Pregnancy massage is given with you lying on your side with pillows giving extra support.
Regular massage during your pregnancy can help you adjust to the dramatic changes your body is going through as you prepare for childbirth. It is a deeply relaxing and nurturing treatment. We are experienced in working with all kinds of pregnancy symptoms, from basic to complex. Please get in touch if you would like to discuss anything in more detail. Please also browse our resources page and pregnancy shop or post-natal shop pages for other products, classes or treatments which may be beneficial to you.
