Pregnancy Massage

 

Being pregnant is a big deal! It indeed is a happy time but brings along a lot of ache and discomfort.

Expecting mums often get swelling in the hands and legs, muscle aches, joint pains, cramps and fatigue due to the physiological changes in the body and lifestyle.

Massage during pregnancy can help to relieve the tension and enhance health and wellbeing. Research has also shown to improve circulation and sleep pattern, increase energy and vitality and reduce anxiety.

Studies done in the past 10 years have shown that hormone levels associated with relaxation and stress are significantly altered when massage therapy is introduced to women’s prenatal care. 

This leads to mood regulation and improved cardiovascular health. The evidence strongly suggests there are maternal health benefits when therapeutic massage is incorporated into regular prenatal care.

 

We use a specialized Pregnancy Belly pillow to accommodate your belly whilst you lie facing down and make you comfortable to get the best experience out of your time and treatment. Whether you are in your second trimester of pregnancy, or close to your due date, we ensure full comfort through our pregnancy pillow.
