Massage therapy during pregnancy is a wonderful complementary choice for prenatal care. It is a healthy way to reduce stress and promote overall wellness all at We Are Wellness in Headingley Leeds.
Pre-natal massage is similar in many ways to a normal massage, the main difference being that massage techniques used in pregnancy are adapted to maintain the wellbeing of mother and child. Techniques vary from firmer massages to relieve discomfort, or softer massages to help relax the expectant mother.
Benefits of a Pre-natal Massage –
- Relief from aching muscles and joint pain
- Reduction in anxiety and stress by increasing “feel-good” hormones
- Rejuvenating energy
- Improved sleep
Before your massage you’ll be asked questions on your pregnancy and the type of massage you’d like. The treatment will last one hour and the typical, most comfortable position for expectant mums is to be lying on one side. You’ll also be given the choice of how much clothing you’d like to wear during your massage.
