Pregnancy is a remarkable journey. Prenatal massage focuses on the special needs of you mamas-to-be as your body goes through the dramatic changes of pregnancy, nurturing your body and mind using techniques that are safe and beneficial for you and your baby.
Prenatal massage benefits all of your body’s systems, improving circulation, easing pregnancy discomfort and promoting deep relaxation, resulting in improved sleep. It also relieves depression and anxiety, helping the mama-to-be prepare for labour.
Treat yourself with prenatal massage to pause and consciously connect to the magic happening within you.
All treatments are done on a side lying position to help reduce the pressure on the vena cava, which can impact the blood flow to mother and baby. With the help of a bolstering system an ideal posture for your comfort, safety and relaxation is achieved. Contraindicated foot reflex zones and deep stretching are left out. The massage can be carried out from the first day to the last day of pregnancy.
Women with the following conditions should speak with a midwife or doctor prior to receiving a massage:
High risk pregnancy
Pregnancy induced hypertension (PIH) e.g. high blood pressure
Previous pre-term labour
Experiencing severe swelling, high blood pressure, or sudden, severe headaches
