Walsall Moms and pregnancy massage
If you’re a mother-to-be who is looking for a way to alleviate some of the discomfort that goes along with pregnancy, a prenatal massage can be the solution. Prenatal (pregnancy massage) massages are a natural way to support your special needs as your body goes through dramatic changes and is a wonderful way of promoting your over-all health and well-being.
Pregnancy Massage offers a range of benefits;
Reducing the muscular discomfort, back and sciatic pain by encouraging blood flow to the affected areas relaxing tension and reducing stiffness.
Massaging the soft tissues to relieve strain on weight bearing joints.
Stimulates the release of endorphins, the body’s natural pain killers, into the brain and nervous system.
Helps increase blood circulation, which in turn delivers more oxygen and nutrients to the mother and baby.
Increases lymphatic circulation helping to reduce swelling in the extremities and promote toxin elimination.
Depending on your specific needs, various acupressure points can be stimulated to ease symptoms such as morning sickness, headaches and muscle cramps.
It stimulates the release of the natural hormone serotine, which helps you to relax, this is passed on to baby so when you are feeling calm your baby does too and promotes restful sleep.
During the treatment you will be positioned on your side and supported by pillows, to ease pressure on your back and give you maximum comfort. You will be covered with towels so that only the body part that is being massaged is exposed. Treatments last from 30 minutes for back neck and shoulder massage or 60 minutes when working on the full body, and the treatment can be adapted to work on any areas which may be causing discomfort.
Massage during pregnancy is safe from 12 weeks up until nine months, however if you have a high risk pregnancy it is best to seek advice from your midwife or physician before having a treatment.
