Pregnancy and postnatal Massage

Pregnancy and Postnatal Massage

Pregnancy is an amazing experience, which can be both joyful and stressful.  As your baby grows, your body naturally adapts to meet your baby’s changing needs.  All this change can put a strain on you and your body, both physically and emotionally.  Pregnancy and postnatal massage has been used for centuries to help ease the strain of pregnancy and help women to bond with their babies, as well as giving the mother some precious ‘me time’.

 

Massage can be enjoyed safely during all stages of your pregnancy and also postnatally.

 

Pregnancy and postnatal massage can help with:

  • Relaxing & de-stressing
  • Lowering blood pressure
  • Easing aches and pains, which you may feel in your lower back during pregnancy (especially in the latter stages) or shoulder and neck area postnatally (whilst nursing, lifting and carrying your ever-growing baby)
  • Creating time for you to connect with your baby
  • Nourishing your skin, keeping it healthy and supple, which can help to minimise stretch marks
  • Giving you practical and emotional support to help you embrace your changing body
  • Reducing swelling in feet, ankles and hands as a result of improved circulation and toxin release.

 

Your comfort and well-being are of the utmost importance and so you will be offered the option of either oil-based massage or massage through your clothes.  Our massage therapist will work in whichever position you are most comfortable, whether that be on your tummy, your back, lying on your side or sitting.
