Full Body Pregnancy Massage - A deeply soothing & relaxing combination of nurturing and gentle techniques. Treatment is adapted to each stage of your pregnancy and designed specifically for you. Every person and pregnancy is as unique as the treatment that you will receive at The TherapyRoom.
This is a full body massage, including face and scalp, but particular attention will be given to any areas of discomfort. The massage itself is generally performed with you lying on your sides (your head, knees and baby bump will be supported with comfortable pillows) & reclining on the couch.
The first appointment will be slightly longer than subsequent 1 hour sessions as a consultation will be taken. You will be asked questions about your pregnancy, current symptoms and your pre pregnancy health. Holistic therapy looks at a person as a whole and you may therefore also be asked questions around your sleeping patterns and your emotions.
Pregnancy massage can be of enormous benefit not only to the mother, but also to the unborn baby. The body & mind undergoes many changes both during and after pregnancy.
Benefits of receiving massage during pregnancy include:
Release of muscular tension throughout the body, easing discomfort of back pain, sciatica, prolapsed discs, SPD & reduced stress on weight bearing joints.
Improve blood circulation bringing more oxygen and nutrients to mother and baby.
Helps to avoid varicose veins developing.
Improve lymph drainage reducing oedema, which can be a contributory factor in Carpal Tunnel Syndrome & Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome.
Decreased stress and anxiety leading to a general feeling of well being.
Improved sleep by promoting relaxation.
Increase in endorphins, the feel good chemicals. These are passed on to the baby.
Help you to connect with your pregnant body and your baby.
A little time for just the two of you.
