Pregnancy and labour Massage shares many elements with regular massage treatments – the aim is to relax tense muscles, ease sore spots, improve circulation and mobility and help to make you feel good – the main difference being the position the client adopts on the massage table:
By adopting a side-lying position with pillows to support head, knees and the developing baby, mum has the opportunity to take some time out and relax.
The effect of carrying a baby alters your centre of gravity, putting additional stresses on your back, neck, abdominal muscles and shoulders. Pregnancy can also affect your mood.
Specialised massage techniques, adapted to allow for the changes your body is going through, are used to address any areas that are causing problems.
As always full towel cover, wraps and a comfortable couch with a step to help getting on and off the couch are used.
