Balima Day Spa has a relaxing prenatal massage for mums-to-be that will soothe and comfort them during their 2nd & 3rd trimester. Massage therapy during the later stages of the pregnancy provides many benefits. As well as soothing tired muscles, it can also bring a sense of wellness, help you relax and induce better sleep.
While massage is usually avoided during the first trimester as this is a critical time period, you can definitely enjoy the benefits of a good massage during the 2nd and 3rd trimester. However, one thing that you must keep in mind is to ensure that your masseuse is professionally trained in performing prenatal massages. This is important because there are certain techniques as well as trigger points in the body that can cause contractions and induce premature labour.
At Balima Day Spa, our prenatal massage involves focused attention on the neck, shoulders, back & legs to gently alleviate these overworked muscles. Carrying extra pregnancy weight and the change in your posture are both common causes of pain and discomfort. If you are experiencing this, there is nothing quite like a good massage to help rub away these aches and strains.
It will help reduce stress hormones in the body and loosen and relax your muscles. A massage improves blood circulation which is especially important when you are pregnant. Regular prenatal massages can help relieve insomnia, neck, joint or back pain and also help with leg cramps and sciatica. Some women have swelling in their hands and feet and a massage can also help to provide relief.
If you are looking for a good massage, Balima Day Spa is the perfect place to find one. Get in touch with us to book your appointment.
