Pregnancy is a special time, however, as your body changes, it can bring about many aches and pains, especially in the latter stages. Massage can be a natural way of easing these ailments.
The first appointment will include a consultation.
Pregnancy Massage £46
As your baby grows, your posture changes and backache in the lower and upper back is common. Massage can help greatly as it will help loosen any tight muscles and help relieve tension in the back.
During the latter stages of pregnancy your digestive system becomes sluggish, allowing time for the baby to absorb vital nutrients. This may cause constipation and heartburn. Stress can make heartburn worse, so a massage will help to reduce anxiety and tension and can help ease symptoms.
As your bump grows, the skin will stretch causing tightness and stretch marks. Massage with a good nourishing oil can help moisturise and soothe the skin. You should not use any essential oils unless it has been uniquely blended for pregnancy by an aromatherapist, as some may not be safe or suitable for pregnancy.
The circulation is working twice as hard as it usually does, so leg cramps, oedema (swelling in the ankles and hands) can be a common symptoms of late pregnancy. Massage can be very helpful in helping to boost circulation and encouraging lymph to move around the body, helping to remove toxins and reduce swelling.
