Being pregnant puts an enormous strain on the body, both physically and mentally. Massage can help ease the associated aches and pains. with all the chemical and physical changes going on preparing the body for carrying and delivering a baby. Maternity Massage can help re-balance the body, reduces stress, aids relaxation and can give relief from muscle cramps, spasms, and other pain, especially in the lower back, neck, hips, and legs.
Maternity Massage can also help with swelling as it stimulates the lymphatic drainage system.
Differing from a regular massage in lots of ways, here at Hemel Massage we always have the clients comfort at the forefront of our mind, and the massage will usually be carried out side lying. You will have lots of pillows and cushions to make you really comfy and wedges can be used on your bump. Your therapist will discuss which areas you would or would not like to be massaged.
How Does Maternity Massage Work?
Blissfully relaxing yet incredibly therapeutic and beneficial, your therapist will massage your body with long, relaxing, slow techniques, designed to relax the muscles and work on your aches and pains.
The treatment usually finishes with a scalp and neck massage using Indian head massage techniques.
You will come away feeling relaxed yet rejuvenated, and will probably feel very tired.
