A lovely relaxing treatment aimed at helping ladies through this special time. The massage targets all areas of the body which are put under strain during pregnancy, especially the lower back, hips and pelvis. We also use techniques that can help with nausea, cramps and swollen ankles.
Pregnancy Massage can be of huge benefit not only to the Mother but also to the unborn baby. Massage during pregnancy can be a magical experience, it can physically and emotionally support a woman during a time when her body is undergoing many changes and can help prepare her body for the birth.
Pregnancy is a wonderful time for a woman, but with the joys of a new baby comes many changes to the mothers’ body putting pressure on joints, ligaments and organs often causing discomfort and pain. Pregnancy Massage can help alleviate aches and pains and other common health problems associated with pregnancy.
Preparing for the arrival of a new baby brings much excitement, but also plenty of stress, massage can help reduce stress levels due to its calming effect. Research shows that the baby can benefit greatly from massage as “feel good” endorphins released by the mother during the massage are passed onto the baby. It is not unusual for mother to feel the baby kick and move as it too responds to the massage treatment.
The massage is carried out with the client lying on her side and the baby is supported using pillows. This enables the therapist to work on the clients back, arms, legs, feet and abdomen. The client can also have a mini facial massage is requested.
