All of our Remedial Therapists are trained and qualified to perform Pregnancy Massage.
Massage increases circulation – bringing more oxygen and nutrients to cells, both in the mother and the developing baby. By increasing circulation, blood pressure may also be kept in check.
Massage can assist with stabilising hormone secretions, especially during the 1st trimester.
The normal discomforts of pregnancy such as: backache, headaches, leg cramps, carpal tunnel type symptoms, and swelling of hands and feet can all be addressed by massage.
The lymphatic system is often overloaded during pregnancy. Massage can assist to move the lymph safely through the body.
As the pregnancy develops, it is quite common to feel varying degrees of discomfort. This can be managed by relaxing tight muscles, toning loose muscles and applying other specialised pregnancy massage techniques.
