What a treatment involves
Pregnancy massage can be offered from 12 weeks onwards.
During your first consultation we will spend some time discussing any concerns you have for yourself or your baby, and decide on the focus for the session.
The massage itself usually lasts around 50 minutes. During a pregnancy massage we use techniques which are adapted from regular massage therapy, but which are specifically tailored around the physical changes that pregnancy brings.
As the baby grows most massages are done with the woman lying on her side.
I will take great care to ensure comfort and discretion at all times, with the use of sheets and pillows.
The atmosphere is very relaxing within this calm environment, with soft lighting and gentle music to help the relaxation process. It is possible to have a single treatment to target a specific hotspot problem, or more beneficially, a series of treatments where we can enhance the powerful underlying learning of the body to relax, connect with itself, connect with your baby, and improve your energy and vitality.
There is a wealth of research which shows that regular massage during pregnancy brings an incredible number of powerful and positive benefits:
Relaxation and deep stress relief.
Pain relief esp hips lower back pelvis neck and shoulder areas.
Improved energy and vitality through improved posture, deeper breath work and pain relief.
Relief from nausea.
Eases depression and anxiety, including lower rates of postnatal depression
Shorter labours, with fewer complications.
Increased wellbeing for the new born baby: babies born to mums who received regular massage during their pregnancy had lower admissions rates to neonatal intensive
Improved bonding with your baby after delivery
The benefits of pregnancy massage are so far reaching and so powerful, that in some countries pregnancy massage is now a routine part of their antenatal care programme. Watch this space!
