Pre-natal massage is a specialised form of massage therapy designed specifically for pregnant women. It offers numerous therapeutic benefits that can help alleviate the discomforts and stresses associated with pregnancy. Here are a few ways in which a prenatal massage can help:
 
1. Relaxation and Stress Reduction: Pregnancy can bring about physical and emotional stress. Pre-natal massage promotes relaxation by releasing endorphins, the body's natural feel-good hormones. It can help reduce anxiety, ease muscle tension, and provide an overall sense of well-being.
 
2. Pain Relief: As pregnancy progresses, many women experience common discomforts such as backaches, hip pain, swelling, and leg cramps. Pre-natal massage can target these specific areas, using techniques like Swedish massage, deep tissue massage, or myofascial release, to help alleviate pain and discomfort.
 
3. Improved Circulation: During pregnancy, the body's blood volume increases, and pressure on blood vessels can lead to reduced circulation and swelling in the extremities. By incorporating techniques that enhance blood flow, pre-natal massage can help reduce swelling and improve overall circulation.
 
4. Reduced Oedema: Oedema, or swelling, is a common complaint during pregnancy, especially in the legs, ankles, and feet. Pre-natal massage techniques that involve gentle strokes and lymphatic drainage can assist in reducing oedema by encouraging excess fluid to be flushed out of the body.
 
5. Hormonal Regulation: Hormonal changes during pregnancy can lead to mood swings, anxiety, and depression. Pre-natal massage can help balance hormones by reducing stress levels and promoting relaxation. This can contribute to an improved mood and overall emotional well-being.
 
6. Better Sleep: Pregnancy often disrupts sleep due to discomfort and hormonal fluctuations. Pre-natal massage can induce relaxation and improve sleep quality, enabling pregnant women to get the rest they need for a healthy pregnancy.
 
Our qualified massage therapists undergo specialised training in this area. They have knowledge of the specific techniques and precautions necessary to ensure the safety and comfort of the mother and baby.
