Pregnancy is a time in women’s life when her body goes through a lot of change both physically and emotionally, there will be a lot of choices and decisions to be made, if the primary care providers advice is followed and there are no medical reasons to avoid treatment then massage can help to support and connect to these changes.
Massage and other bodywork therapies can be extremely effective in supporting a client who may be dealing with headaches, muscle tension, the circulation, lymphatic and digestive system are all under increased demand as well as what mum maybe feeling emotionally.
But pregnancy is also a joyful time and massage can help to support this too, these days our lives are so busy trying to juggle work and family life, taking the the time to just be calm, concentrate on the connection between mother and baby, the rhythmic strokes and breath work can be soothing for both of you.
It’s also a good time for mum to be much more aware of her body and posture to help her body cope with all the changes and extra stress and to help baby to position well, we all fall into bad postural habits without even realising, Massage is a great way to re-set yourself and pick up on these bad habits, it’s amazing how easy it can be to correct them once you are aware of what you have been doing.
Partners and other children can also be shown some simple massage techniques to help mum and also to help them connect more with baby and create a relaxed calm atmosphere for the whole family.
Pregnancy is such a time of change and transformation, massage can help to support mum to connect to her body as she goes through these changes.
