Pregnancy Massage is excellent for both Mum and baby. Pregnant women place a lot of stress on their body as their baby develops and this can lead to aches and pains in the muscles, specifically in the back and legs. When I was pregnant with my two children, I spent a lot of time commuting to work in London – the strain of an hours commute and sitting at my desk for 8 hours slowly took its toll on my body.
Many people understandably are hesistant about treatments during pregnancy for fear of harming their baby. Yet massage from a specially trained therapist is one of the best ways to ensure that your mind and body is tension free throughout your pregnancy. Regular treatments – monthly or even more regularly – will contribute to a comfortable pregnancy, will relieve stress and muscular tension and help you prepare both mentally and physically for the birth, especially during your last trimester.
In summary, the benefits of a pregnancy massage may include:
- The easing of aching muscles
- Relieve sciatic pain
- Improve circulation
- Help with fluid retention in the legs
- Relieve tiredness and fatigue from the extra weight carried
- Helps you to mentally and physically relax from the pressures of the pregnancy while providing you with a bit of pampering before your baby arrives
Gill performs this massage with the client laid on her side on the bed, so that i can work on the back, leg and arm on that side before turning her over and repeating the techniques on the other side. The treatment is just over 50 minutes.
