Pregnancy Massage

Aromatherapy is a very relaxing and gentle therapy to experience during pregnancy and the treatment can give support and nourishment to both the mother and baby. It can be extremely effective in treating some of the physical and emotional discomforts associated with pregnancy.

Aromatherapy massage treatments can start in the second trimester and are suitable throughout the pregnancy. Treatments can help to soothe the extra stress and strain placed upon a woman’s body, can help to reduce fluid retention and ease the increasing aches and pains in the body as the baby gets bigger.

Pregnancy massage has recently become more popular and other than the physical benefits of the therapy, recent studies have shown that hormone regulation can also improve. This may lead to fewer complications during the birth of the baby.

Pregnancy massage can take place with the mother-to-be in a sitting or lying position. This is to prevent pressure on the abdomen and stretching of the ligaments surrounding the uterus and pelvic area. Pillows and cushions will also be used for extra support.
