Pregnancy Massage

Pregnancy is one of the most amazing journeys on which to embark, however it isn’t always a smooth sailing. Every pregnancy is unique and has it’s own challenges, from muscular aches and swelling to disturbed sleep patterns and nausea, vomiting and cravings! While we can’t help with the latter symptoms, the former can be treated with gentle, supportive pregnancy massage.

What is Pregnancy Massage?

The human body undergoes a wide variety of changes during pregnancy. One of the hardest parts is the strain that your body endures as the baby grows and your body tries to adapt. Ligaments loosen, muscles tighten and gait changes more and more as the baby grows.

Pregnancy massage is perfect for helping to relax tight muscles and is specifically tailored to help the mother during the course of the pregnancy as her needs change.

What does Pregnancy Massage consist of?

Pregnancy massage, or prenatal massage, is a type of massage tailored specifically for expectant mothers to reduce discomfort and provide much needed time to focus on themselves. The goals are to promote relaxtion, relieve muscle tension, reduce stress and alleviate common symptoms such as backache, leg cramps and swollen feet.

Massage is typically focused around the lower back, hips, legs and feet. These areas often take most of the strain owing to the changes that carrying a growing baby brings.

Having a massage at any time of the pregnancy after 13 weeks is absolutely safe as it is such a gentle form of massage and is aimed to reduce the strain on mum’s body, sometimes in preparation for the changes to come and other times helping to decrease existing symptoms.
