Designed specifically for the ‘mother-to-be’ this routine is performed mainly in a side-lying position with additional pillows offering extra comfort and support throughout the treatment.
There are many benefits to receiving massage during the 2nd and 3rd trimesters of pregnancy, some of which are:
Relief from muscular aches and pains.
Reduction of swelling in hands, legs and feet.
An increased sense of wellbeing due to the relaxation benefits of massage.
The massage will also encourage the release of oxytocin, which is a pain-reducing hormone.
Regular massage throughout a pregnancy can help the ‘mother-to-be’ become more aware of her own body. This in turn may improve the ability to relax during the 1st stage of labour.
If you would like to book for pregnancy massage, please contact the clinic in the first instance. A consent form signed by your GP or midwife needs to be completed.
