The time you share with your baby, as it grows inside the womb, is uniquely special and connected. However, it does bring with it a number of potential problems for your body, as you adjust to the new situation of carrying a child. Your muscles will experience strains that they never have done before and that can lead to pains and tension building up within them. It is important that you promote your own health when you are pregnant, so that the same can be passed onto your baby. Keeping stresses and pains as low as possible will benefit you both and so you should always negate them in any healthy way that you can. A prenatal massage will do just this, whilst a postnatal massage will encourage your body’s readiness for motherhood.
A prenatal massage is the massage therapy that you have whilst you are still carrying your baby. For the many aches and pains that come hand in hand with pregnancy, a prenatal massage will be the healthiest way for you to alleviate yourself and release them. Back pains, stress on joints and muscle swelling are just some of the things that could be better off for gifting yourself a prenatal massage. Our delicate and caring masseuses understand the bodily struggles that come through this natural procedure and apply real care and tenderness to do their very best to help you better them.
Following on from the birth of your child, your body continues to experience changes as tries to bring itself back to its originality whilst maintaining the adjustments that a mother’s body makes. As your body recovers from the stresses of the pregnancy, your muscles will contract in ways that they haven’t done before and this can lead to unfamiliar pains. A postnatal massage will help with these pains, along with stress, sleep and blood flow. Also, a postnatal massage is a great way to help recovery following on from a caesarian birth.
Muscle Tension and Fatigue
During your pregnancy, the muscles surrounding your womb must learn to deal with a new force being implied onto them. Muscle tissue will have to stretch and grow in a relatively short space of time to allow for your baby’s growth. Both your stomach and back will feel pain and your legs become fatigued, bearing the additional weight. We encourage blood flow to these areas to assist with the managing and healing of the weight and we can target specific areas of tension, from your head down to your legs.
We want to encourage the health of each pregnant women that seeks out our help. That is exactly why we take the safety of our prenatal and postnatal massages very seriously. If you are in a high-risk pregnancy, you should always consult your doctor beforehand. At the same time, if you feel any pains throughout the duration of the massage, tell us immediately. We hope to always be able to encourage the healthy growth of both mother and baby.
