                                                                   " Beautiful Bump" Pregnancy Massage

 Specialised Pregnancy Massage  is suitable after the first trimester (12 weeks) up to your due date.This lovely treatment is something every mother- to-be should experience and is tailored to her unique needs.

Pregnancy is clearly a time, more than any other, to prioritise your health and well-being. Specialised pregnancy massage can help reduce common discomforts like joint and muscle pains, stress, nausea, swelling and back ache, and supports a frame of mind that prepares for the physical, emotional and mental changes ahead. It’s a popular complementary therapy at a time when traditional choices for pain relief, like medication, are often limited. 
Not only can massage be physically beneficial, but touch can be comforting and provide emotional support during this demanding time.

Regular sessions may have additional benefits; provide a relaxing journey to motherhood, supporting the bond between your body and your baby, and enabling your "feel good " endorphins to be passed on to them too!

The ability to relax afforded by massage can help with restful sleep and also the 1st stage of labour, often resulting in shorter easier births with less pain and a lower rate of postnatal complications. There is substantial research to support these findings. (Pub Med. Tiffany Field et al)
Sessions begin with a full consultation, and each stage of the massage will have emphasis on your comfort and individual needs, using adapted positioning, support pillows and specially developed strokes and 
techniques. Your body`s hormonal and muscular skeletal changes are considered, as is your altered centre of gravity.
If you have any concerns about massage in pregnancy do discuss this with Louisa, your midwife or care provider who should be happy for Pregnancy Massage to be done.

   Increased Benefits with Regular Visits


Regular massage provides increased benefit,
and as your tissues respond more readily,
subsequent treatments become more effective.This makes both health and financial sense as each visit 
is better value for money than the one before. 

Evidence shows that clients receiving regular massage tend to have reduced pain, increased energy and range of movement, lowered stress levels and blood pressure, and greater psychological well-being. Massage can also help  skeletal alignment via muscle balance and thus improve mobility and posture. These are just some of the effects of well-planned, targeted  bodywork, so taking the time to have regular massage treatments really  pays dividends.

Routine self-care is the key to maintaining health &  vitality, and budgeting for regular bodywork is a real investment in your future. Just because massage feels like a pampering treat doesn't mean it is any less therapeutic! 

Consider planning regular  massage appointments as a vital part of your health and well-being plan, and we can discuss a treatment schedule that best meets your individual needs.
