If you're expecting or have recently had a baby, you're probably aware of how your body has changed during the pregnancy. Pregnancy can bring about a lot of discomforts when your body starts to grow and adjust for the new baby. During this time, you might experience swollen ankles, tight joints, sore muscles, and aching limbs. All of these side effects of pregnancy are normal and nothing to be concerned about, but you should always consult with your doctor beforehand if you believe your condition is much worse.
Prenatal massages are done to target parts of your body that are growing and affected heavily by your pregnancy. This can include your calves, your stomach or torso area, as well as your back and shoulders. Once you become pregnant, your posture has a tendency to change because you’re holding your weight differently than before. To curve the aches and pains that come from pregnancy, our massages are done using safe oils and techniques that tackle the pain at the source but don’t hurt or compromise your pregnancy itself.
A postnatal massage aims to focus on the body parts that likely experienced the most discomfort during the pregnancy, which can include your feet and your torso. These areas are usually given the most pressure when you grow during pregnancy because they hold more weight than your body is used to holding, meaning there's more pressure on them which can lead to aches and pains. Postnatal massages are gentle to take care of your body post-birth but can readily combat the extra or lingering pain that you might feel in certain target areas of your body, even after you've had the baby.
The benefits of pre and postnatal massages are endless, especially if you're experiencing more discomfort from your pregnancy than others. For those that have had previous injuries or muscle aches prior to the pregnancy, the pregnancy can actually add weight and more pain to those troubled areas. To reduce the amount of pain and discomfort, we use particular strokes and techniques to loosen the muscle tension in the key areas where pregnancy weight gain can affect your body. Another benefit of our pre and postnatal massages are that they're able to relax you, reduce stress, and make your pregnancy easier and calmer. This is crucial to not only your wellbeing but also for your baby's for the duration of your pregnancy.
When performing pre and postnatal massages, we always put your safety first. This means that we will never perform a massage that has been considered dangerous to you or your pregnancy, nor will we use chemicals or oils that could be irritant or uncomfortable. We aim to make your pregnancy as enjoyable as possible and want you to feel comfortable every step of the way. Our expert massage therapists are licensed to perform massages for pre and postnatal purposes, having taken considerable certifications to obtain the rights to do so.
