Pregnancy massage is a wonderful treatment that is completely safe given by a therapist qualified in this field of work.  It has many benefits and can provide support at a time when the body is going through a great number of changes.

The benefits include:

  • Stress reduction and relaxation.  Relaxation has positive results for both mother and baby and increases the chance of a positive birth experience.
  • Emotional support.  We can provide important individualised attention to your individual and emotional concerns.
  • Circulatory benefits. Discomforts such as Oedema, varicose veins and high blood pressure often respond well to appropriate massage therapy,
  • Respiratory benefits. Specific well designed massage therapy can improve pre and post natal respiratory function.
  • Gastrointestinal benefits.  Infant massage studies indicate that massage increases vagal nerve activity which stimulates production of food absorption hormones, therefore a woman’s nutrient utilisation may be improved with massage.  This can help with pregnancy discomforts which include indigestion, heartburn, nausea and vomiting
