Prenatal Massage

prenatal massage fitzroy northPregnancy Massage is a specialised Massage tailored to meet the expectant mother’s needs. Massage can play a meaningful role in maintaining health and comfort during this important time of your life. In Pregnancy you can experience pain through your hips, shoulders, lower back, arms and feet due to the changes taking place in your physical body and hormones.

Massage can help to relax and reduce muscle and joint pain, increase circulation and alleviate oedema. It improves oxygenation to soft tissue and muscles. The relaxing effect of receiving a massage prepares you for birth and increases oxytocin, the feel good hormone which supports labour and bonds you with your new child.

The massage takes place on a specially designed cushion that allows you to lie safely on your stomach. Our qualified massage therapists use specialised techniques to help you relax and feel renewed.

Massage is usually avoided during the first 3 months of pregnancy so please talk with our receptionist or practitioners if this applies to you.

The benefits of prenatal massage include:

  • Increased circulation and flexibility
  • Deep relaxation to allow our mind to slow
  • Less stress
  • Tones and eases muscles
  • Increase in health of cells & immune function
  • Decreased back pain
  • Decreased pain from pelvic instability
  • Reduction of swelling
