What is a Pregnancy Massage?

Pregnancy massage can provide an alternative to drugs and medicines used for pain relief. Our treatments help relieve pain safely and naturally.

How can Pregnancy Massage help?

There are a range of physiological and emotional benefits to having a pregnancy massage. For starters, it helps reduce stress on the joints and muscles and also helps reduce stress psychologically. Pregnancy massage is very gentle and relaxing and no deep tissue techniques are used.

Pregnancy can be uncomfortable with many different complaints including lower back pain, upper back pain, leg cramps, headaches, neck pain, sacroiliac and hip joint pain, and so much more. Pregnancy massage helps to stimulate receptors in a woman's body to allow her to function effectively during pregnancy and regulate energy levels.

Massage can stabilise hormone levels and relieve anxiety that can be caused by hormonal changes during pregnancy. It can assist with sleep by relaxing the nervous system by releasing endorphins. It can help with blood flow and circulation as well as stimulating the lymphatic system and helping to eliminate toxins in the body. This list is not exhaustive but just an indication of the type of help that pregnancy massage can provide.
