Pregnancy Massage

Massage during pregnancy can be a magical experience and can not only alleviate many common pregnancy conditions, but can also offer a unique opportunity for Mother to bond with her unborn child.

Pregnancy massage is usually performed with the woman lying on very comfortably on her side and supported with cushions.

(Tara Rivero Zea, one of our pregnancy massage therapists, has a special bolster pillow set that enables women to lie safely on their front during the pregnancy massage)

Benefits of Massage During Pregnancy:

There is lots of research which supports the tremendous benefits of pregnancy massage. Baby also benefits from massage as ‘feel good” endorphins are released by the mother and passed on via the umbilical cord.
It is not unusual to feel baby kick and move as they respond to massage treatment.

Massage during pregnancy can help:

  • Common pregnancy complaints such as oedema, sciatica, carpal tunnel, nausea, pelvic girdle pain, headaches etc.
  • Reduce emotional stress and anxiety
  • Release muscular tension
  • Encourage release of oxytocin
  • Prevent sluggish bowel movement
  • Lymphatic drainage; enabling toxins to be eliminated effectively.

Pregnancy is a wonderful time, but it is also a time of many changes to a woman’s body and can put pressure on joints, ligaments and organs often causing discomfort and pain. It can also be quite stressful. Massage can help alleviate these conditions.

Whilst massage in all stages of pregnancy is both safe and beneficial, most practitioners won’t massage ladies within the first trimester (up to 12 weeks) due to the constraints placed upon them by their insurers.
