Massage Therapy

 

Take a break from the tensions and stresses of everyday life and do something healthy and wonderful for yourself.  Massage helps by providing therapeutic effects upon the nervous, muscular and circulatory systems of the body.  It is used to great effect in relieving tight and sore muscles caused by everyday activities such as exercise, stress and poor posture. 

 

Positive outcomes of massage therapy validated by numerous clinical studies include pain reduction, better quality of life, improved sleep and function as well as reduced depressive symptoms.  Incorporating a regular massage into your life is an excellent way to maintain an increased level of general health and well-being.

 

 

Massage for Expectant Mothers

 

There are many physical and emotional changes that occur for expectant mothers as a result of weight gain, shifting posture and hormonal changes.  Pregnancy massage helps alleviate these changes.  Not only does it help alleviate tension and stiffness, but also increases energy to the mother and improves nourishment to the baby. Taking time for yourself during pregnancy can help elevate your mood and promote feelings of relaxation.  It is important to feel comforted during this period of physical and emotional changes.

 

With specialised training in Pregnancy Massage, Sally chooses techniques that are safe and effective for pregnant women.  Pregnancy massage offers a wide range of benefits which include the following:

 

  • easing backaches, headaches, shoulder and neck aches

  • reducing pain in the pelvic/hip area

  • increasing circulation

  • improving digestion

  • reducing fatigue

  • reducing swelling in hands and lower legs

  • promoting relaxation and deep breathing

 

Expectant Mothers’ will be massaged in a side-lying position with plenty of pillows or cushions for support.  Many leading experts in the profession do not recommend prone positioning because of the stress it places on vulnerable circulation areas on the uterine ligaments, and on the uterus itself.
