Massage & The Pregnant Body

by (Remedial Massage Therapist & Pilates Instructor)

There are many physiological, structural, and psychological changes that occur daily when you’re pregnant. You may experience constant growing pains from the increase in bodily mass, hormonal changes, and continuous dropping of the pelvis. Massage therapy can provide significant relief from all those aches and pains to enhance the happiness of your pregnancy journey.

pregnant client Anita thoroughly enjoys treating mothers throughout their entire pregnancy. She believes massage therapy provides a connection from mother to baby and can simply relax the body and mind.

Anita likes to offer a soft or firm pressure of your choice to help reduce any tension you may be holding. Our plush pregnancy pillow allows for maximum support of the belly to provide extreme comfort.

 

Anita believes the following points can help with your pregnancy journey.

  • Regular pregnancy massage can help soften the muscles around the lungs and thoracic cage, which helps to expand breathing capability and can provide more oxygen to your baby.

 

  • Massage can improve skin elasticity, increases flexibility and tone to the muscles, which can help ease muscle cramps and reduce stress on weight bearing joints.

 

  • Massage works very effectively on the nervous system. A decrease in internal stresses can help you to sleep better and help your baby to grow healthier.

 

  • Massage certainly helps to ease lower back pain associated with pregnancy through addressing the lumbosacral tilt that may occur.

 

If you are currently pregnant and feel that Massage Therapy could help you along your journey, Anita will be more than happy to assist you. Private Health Rebates may apply to you.
