Pregnancy is never static and can place the body under enormous pressure. It is constantly changing to accommodate and develop the little human that is now being created inside the uterus.
While this is a beautiful time in your life your body is ever changing. Many parts of the body will be undergoing quite a lot of changes, hormonally as well as physically. The lower back, shoulders, hips, legs and feet can become very tight and sore. Swelling may increase and your general outlook on life may alter.
You may also find that existing health conditions are being exacerbated.
Pregnancy massage is designed to take into account all of the existing symptoms and health conditions. Sessions are tailored specifically to your needs to create the best possible outcome for you and the developing foetus, whether you are a first-time mother or already have children. It seems to reduce stress, relax and loosen your muscles, increase blood flow and improve the lymphatic system. It can also improve mood, lower anxiety and help you sleep better.
It may also help the body to prepare itself for the transition into labour.
If you have any concerns about receiving a massage while you are pregnant, please speak with your medical support team to obtain clearance and if possible, obtain a letter of clearance to bring along to your first visit.
