Congratulations on becoming a mum-to-be. Pregnancy is such an incredible experience, but as all us mums know, along with the excitement, anticipation and unconditional love for this new life inside us comes lots of aches, pains and sheer exhaustion! Do you need an hour just for you? An hour to relax, unwind, ease those aches and pains and forget all those worries allowing you to just concentrate on yourself and your new baby. During your pregnancy is a time when you would benefit more than any other from a relaxing massage or reflexology treatment due to problems such as the extra weight on your joints and muscles, water retention and sleep disturbances.
Therapeutic massage has been used for centuries to improve overall health, reduce stress, and relieve muscle tension.
Studies indicate that massage and reflexology therapy performed during pregnancy can reduce anxiety, decrease symptoms of depression, relieve muscle aches and joint pains, and improve labour outcomes and newborn health. Other benefits include:
- Relaxation and stress relief
- Improve lymphatic and blood circulation
- Hormone Regulation
- Reduction in Back Pains and Sciatic pains
- Reduction in Joint Pains
- Reduced water retention (Oedema)
- Reduce in muscle tension and headaches
- Improvement of oxygen supply to muscles and soft tissue
- Improved sleep pattern
- Hormone regulation
Pregnancy Massage and Pregnancy Reflexology Treatments are perfectly safe throughout pregnancy. However, just to be on the safe side (and as with any therapy), no treatments will be carried out during pregnancy until you have had your first scan and your pregnancy has been confirmed as being stable, this is normally after 12-14 weeks duration. As with any therapeutic approach to your pregnancy well being, please discuss with your Midwife before booking your appointment.
Your therapist is very experience and has been specially trained in Pregnancy treatments so you can rest assured both you and your baby are in safe hands.
