For Qualified Massage Therapists

Recent medical journals have published positive results from massage therapy during pregnancy.

There are a number of benefits which include :

Reduced muscle tension in the Back - less back pain
Improved Sleep patterns
Reduction in the Stress Response
Fewer complications in Labour

In addition, one of the most exciting findings shows that women massaged during pregnancy had babies with fewer post-natal complications and a lower rate of prematurity.

Pregnancy massage, like our Holistic Massage aims to relax tense muscles, improve circulation and mobility, stimulate the parasympathetic nervous system and encourage a sense of wellbeing and total relaxation. However, the benefits to the Mum-to-be can include :

Reduction in muscle tension, particularly in the lower back
Increase in blood and lymph circulation, which can reduce swelling.
Reduces stress on weight-bearing joints.
