Taking care of yourself after the birth of your baby is very important and Massage can be very beneficial to help recovery and support during a physically and emotionally challenging time. This is also a time when your neck and shoulders can become sore and tight during breast feeding or simply holding and rocking your child. Massage provides a nurturing and supportive space to help you feel cared for.
Induction massage works with acupuncture points that are usually avoided during pregnancy, to help stimulate the body’s natural processes to stimulate labour. It can help to relax you and calm any anxiety, which also allows the natural hormones to be released. Massage can soften and open your sacrum and may encourage the descent of the baby into the optimal position.
Shiatsu is a highly effective and enjoyable physical therapy that originated in Japan, and is rooted in Oriental Medicine. It can be beneficial both for specific conditions and as preventative healthcare. Treatment includes stretches, gentle manipulation of the joints, and soft but deep pressure on the meridians (energy channels that run along the body), mostly using the palms and thumbs, to release energy blockages and re-establish the optimal flow of “Ki/Qi/Chi” (vital energy/force). The intention of this holistic massage therapy is to bring out the natural self-healing ability that we all possess by nature.
