Spending nine months making a human being can really put a strain on your muscles, your bones, your skin and your mental well being. So it’s really important that you take care of your body and mind during those precious months. We offer pregnancy massage to alleviative the additional stresses while the body transforms.
With regular massage, these tensions can be reduced and you can feel more in tune with your body. Pregnancy massage therapy can assist in reducing stress, encourage relaxation and prepare muscles for childbirth. Pregnancy massages can be beneficial in areas such as easing lower back pain and leg cramps, assisting with neck pain and headaches, swelling of the feet and hands, insomnia, reduce muscular tension and sooth the nervous system. Pregnancy massage can also be beneficial in reducing cortisol levels and increase the release of the feel good hormones serotonin and dopamine.
In our clinic we use pregnancy cushions to support you, as an expectant mother, to ensure you are comfortable at all times. With the assistance of these specialised pregnancy cushions, you are even able to lie on your stomach. We have had Mothers to be, at Eight and a half months very comfortable in this position; or you can lie on your side again with great support. The cushions are adjustable via velcro straps so as you show we can open them up a little at a time to best suit you. We just want to make sure you have the most relaxing experience possible.
