Pregnancy Massage in London

Screenshot_1Pregnancy Massage is a slow, soothing and calming massage for the various stages of pregnancy after the first trimester. The client lies on her side, with pillows, blankets and towels to support and warm her body and bump. Not only is it a highly relaxing treatment, it also helps to alleviate side effects such as backaches and swelling.

Pregnancy Massage can be of benefit not only to the mother but also to the unborn baby. It can emotionally and physiologically support the mother during a time of great change in the body. Pregnancy Massage can also help the mother prepare her body for birth. Pregnancy can be a wonderful time for a woman, however the every system of the body is affected. The process puts pressure on joints, ligaments and organs, causing discomfort and pain.

Pregnancy can also be a stressful time for the mother, for many reasons. Massage will help with stress levels due to it’s calming effect. Regular massage whilst pregnant can make the mother more aware of her own body, helping with the ability to relax outside of the treatment.

Pregnancy Massage is safe because it is slow and gentle, treating the client with the utmost care. However as a complementary therapy it is not an alternative to normal maternity care. A comprehensive consultation will take place before proceeding with the massage. I will only massage if I feel it is safe to do so.

Pregnancy Massage Benefits

There are many benefits to a Pregnancy Massage, it will stimulate the circulation, aiding distribution of essential nutrients and fluids to all the major organs of the body including the placenta. Pregnancy Massage will release muscular tension of the upper back, shoulders, lower back and hips. It will help with varicose veins developing and with sluggish bowel movement. Pregnancy Massage encourages the release of oxytocin, this is a pain reducing hormone which provides vital pain relief during labour and birth.

Pregnancy Massage works with the mother holistically, helping to create a sense of well being. The massage will help in reducing any emotional stress and anxiety that the mother is feeling at this time of change. The intention of Pregnancy massage is to induce a state of deep relaxation and enhance the mothers sleep. It is reported that mothers who sleep well during the last month of their pregnancy have shorter labours. Pregnancy Massage can provide vital monitoring support to the client and her health care professional, such as her GP or midwife.

Contraindications for Pregnancy Massage

Any therapies used during pregnancy, including massage must be a complimentary therapy and are not an alternative to maternity care by health care professionals.

Most massage is contraindicated in the first trimester of pregnancy. This is a safety precaution as there is a greater natural risk of miscarriage during this time.

Massage is contraindicated or not suitable for pregnant women who are experiencing cramping, bleeding or abdominal or pelvic pain. Pregnancy Massage should be avoided if the client has been diagnosed with (or has a history of) high risk pregnancy, deep vein thrombosis or pulmonary embolism unless massage is specified by a health care professional.
