What is Pregnancy Massage?

Pregnancy Massage

Pregnancy massage is a combination of relaxation massage and deep tissue. The massage therapist adapts their techniques to address the changes a woman goes through during her pregnancy. A pregnancy massage using a selection of Swedish, deep and remedial massage techniques to reduce stress, decrease swelling, relieve aches and pains and reduce anxiety and depression. A pregnancy massage is performed with the woman on her side or back and customised to each woman’s needs.

For instance, in the early stages, the therapist will relax the body and loosen the muscles related to stress and any niggling injuries the mother may have, so these are not a concern in the later stages of the pregnancy.

In the second trimester, the therapist will change the technique to work on the upper body area and focus more on the lower body region, hips, and legs.

As the pregnancy progress to the third trimester, the treatment will accommodate more flowing movements to move any problematic fluid areas, focusing on the lower body region to loosen tight muscles in preparation for the birth. It may also incorporate the arms, hands and feet in cases of swelling.

Pregnancy Massage is just as crucial for the mother as it is for the child.
