Pregnancy causes many changes to your body both physically and emotionally and so it’s very important to look after yourself and your growing baby. This is your time to rest, relax and enjoy your pregnancy free of pain or stress.
Let one of our fully qualified professional pregnancy massage therapists help you if you suffer with any or all of the following:
- Back, neck and shoulder pain
- Muscle and joint stiffness
- Stress and anxiety
- Swollen ankles
Why is it important to see a qualified pregnancy massage therapist?
Your body goes through many changes during pregnancy and so the massage treatment will need to be adapted accordingly. Depending on what stage you are in your pregnancy, the therapist is trained to advise you of any contraindications related to pregnancy; which massage techniques would be most suitable and to position you in such a way to ensure you are comfortable throughout your treatment.
How can pregnancy massage help?
Pregnancy can have an impact on your posture thereby placing undue strain on your joints and muscles. Pregnancy massage uses light, gentle techniques to promote deep relaxation and relieve muscular tension and pain.
The therapist is specially trained to adapt these techniques to suit the changes your body is experiencing in pregnancy.
Amongst some of the benefits are:
- Reduction of stress and promotion of relaxation
- Reduced muscle tension and joint pain
- Relief for back, neck and shoulder pain
- Release of the “feel good” hormones Dopamine and Serotonin
- Reduced swelling
- Improved sleep patterns
- Improved circulation and boost energy levels
What to expect in your first session?
When you visit our Cambridge pregnancy massage clinic, your therapist will do a consultation with you to establish where you are in your pregnancy and what your specific issues are. That way, the treatment will be tailored to your particular requirements. The therapist will then ask you to lie on your side on the couch and prop you up with cushions so that you are comfortable. This will avoid any unnecessary strain to you and your baby whilst you are having the treatment.
Prior to booking your first massage treatment, it is strongly advisable to inform the clinic that you are pregnant. This is because not all massage therapists are professionally trained and qualified to carry out pregnancy massage and so won’t be able to treat you.
It is very important that you seek advice from your GP before you book a massage treatment especially if you are in your first trimester. It is said that there is a high risk of miscarriage associated with massage in the first 12 weeks of pregnancy and so it is best to err on the side of caution.
