Pregnancy Massage

Pregnancy massage is a great way to get rid of aches, pains, anxiety and discomfort. No sports or deep tissue massage is allowed during pregnancy, because your joints are quite loose. Pregnancy massages are adapted for the anatomical changes you go through during pregnancy. In a traditional massage, you might spend half the time lying face-down on your stomach (which is uncomfortable with a baby belly) and half the time facing up (a position that puts pressure on a major blood vessel that can disrupt blood flow to your baby and leave you feeling nauseous). But as your shape and posture changes, a massage therapist will make accommodations with special cushioning systems or holes that allow you to lie face down safely, while providing room for your growing belly and breasts. Or you might lie on your side with the support of pillows and cushions.

 

Prenatal massage can help to:

– improve circulation, and increase the flow of oxygen to soft tissue and muscles

– reduce back, leg and joint pain

– reduce oedema (water retention) and swelling

– improve sleep

– improve mood and lower anxiety

– regulate hormones, such as helping to decrease levels of stress hormones and increase "happy" hormones such as serotonin and dopamine

– reduce muscle tension, and headaches

 

You should avoid having a pregnancy massage if:

– you are in first trimmest of your pregnancy

– your midwife or doctor has advised against it

– you’re experiencing nausea or headaches

– you have a high risk of premature labour
