Prenatal massage is a gentle and empathetic treatment, tailored specifically for pregnant women, giving them a particularly relaxing experience and improving their overall well-being during the delicate period of pregnancy.
This age-old ritual focuses on the unique needs of pregnant women, adapting to the physical and emotional changes specific to this stage to create a harmonious connection between mother and child.
Experts trained for maternal care: Prenatal massage is delivered by therapists specialising in maternity care, with in-depth knowledge of the anatomy and physiology of pregnancy.
Adaptability: Our therapists are sensitive to the needs of pregnant women and are trained to tailor each massage session to the stage of pregnancy and any associated medical conditions.
Gentle and safe techniques:
Each prenatal massage technique is designed to be gentle and safe for the pregnant woman and her baby. Therapists avoid excessive pressure on sensitive areas and use gentle, fluid movements to release tension, soothe back pain and relieve general discomfort.
Pregnant women are seated in a comfortable position, using supportive pillows to maintain proper body alignment and help them feel relaxed as they are pampered with gentle massage.
Reducing stress and anxiety:
Pregnancy can be a time full of hormonal and emotional changes. Prenatal massage helps lower levels of the stress hormone cortisol and releases endorphins, the hormones of relaxation and well-being, so mothers-to-be feel calmer and more at peace.
Relief from pain and physical discomfort:
As pregnancy progresses, many women experience back pain, discomfort in the lower back and swelling in the legs. Prenatal massage reduces these discomforts, helping to release muscle tension and improve blood circulation so women feel lighter and more energised.
Many parents-to-be experience insomnia or difficulty finding a comfortable sleeping position. Prenatal massage encourages deep relaxation and improves sleep quality, giving pregnant women a welcome respite for rest and recuperation.
Improving the mother-child connection:
In addition to the physical and emotional benefits, prenatal massage facilitates a special connection between mother and baby. The therapist's gentle and intentional touch stimulates the secretion of oxytocin, the love hormone, creating a deep bond between mother and fetus.
