Pregnancy is a beautiful and natural condition – nine transformative months full of excitement and joy. But, there’s no doubt about it, the physical and emotional changes of pregnancy can be hard to bear!  Pregnancy massage is specially tailored to effectively ease these discomforts, bringing peace and tranquility to both mother and baby.

Just like regular massage, it employs a range of therapeutic techniques that loosen the muscles and joints, reducing pain and discomfort, improves the circulation and relieves fatigue helping the physical body. The opportunity to take some time out of a busy life and receive a nurturing touch also benefits the mind and spirit. Pregnancy massage is performed by a trained specialist and is targeted to the unique needs of mothers-to-be, supporting you through the transitions of your pregnancy.   You will be given great care on a cushioned table using the “Comfy Client Cushion” in a “side-lying” position with your body fully supported with pillows. It almost feels like you are in bed! Using a combination of styles to relax and soothe the body, treat and ease tensions & at the end of the session you are left feeling restored, relaxed and comfortable in your new body, ultimately promoting the well being of yourself and your baby.

THE BENEFITS OF PRENATAL MASSAGE

First and foremost, prenatal massage makes you feel good! It nurtures and pampers the body at a time when it needs it the most. In addition to soothing the body and dissolving stress, a trained touch delivers a wide range of psychological and emotional benefits.

It’s a safe and relaxing way to relieve pregnancy’s common discomforts like backache, headaches, heartburn, fatigue, carpal tunnel syndrome, leg cramps, oedema, nasal congestion, sciatica and shortness of breath.

Prenatal massage not only benefits the mother but also your baby too. Everything a pregnant woman does, from her diet and fitness to her relaxation and relative state of contentment – also directly affects the child she is carrying. Study after study has proven that calmness in the mother leads to healthier in-utero development.

Regular prenatal massage can help prepare you for labour by making the pelvis more supple and creates more awareness within your body for relaxation.

Just like a regular massage, prenatal massage:

 improves circulation
