Pregnancy Massage and its wonderful benefits 

Important factors and contraindications to consider before receiving Pregnancy Massage

Fostering a strong mother-baby bond

Pregnancy is a special time for bonding with the baby. Pregnancy massage provides a peaceful and nurturing environment for expectant mothers to connect with their little ones. The caring touch enhances the mother-baby bond, promoting a sense of calm, well-being, and harmony for both. ​

 

Soothing discomfort

Pregnancy often brings discomfort, such as back pain, swelling, and muscle tension. Pregnancy massage uses gentle techniques specifically designed for pregnant women to provide much-needed relief. It helps ease these discomforts, allowing mothers to feel more comfortable and relaxed. ​

 

Encouraging relaxation and better sleep

Pregnancy can disrupt sleep patterns and increase stress levels. By incorporating pregnancy massage into their routine, expectant mothers can experience deep relaxation, reduced anxiety, and improved sleep quality. The soothing touch and gentle strokes used during the massage session help moms unwind, release tension, and enjoy a more restful sleep.

Improving circulation and reducing swelling

During pregnancy, increased blood volume can lead to swelling in the legs, hands, and feet. Pregnancy massage uses techniques that stimulate blood and lymph circulation, helping to reduce swelling and fluid retention. This not only improves the mother's physical comfort but also creates a healthier environment for the growing baby.

What to expect during Pregnancy Massage

Before we begin, we will discuss your specific needs, areas of concern, and comfort level.  The pressure applied during the massage can be tailored to your preference and the areas being treated.

 

Whether you prefer light, medium, or firm pressure, I will adjust accordingly to ensure your comfort and meet your needs. Depending on your comfort and stage of pregnancy, you will be positioned in a side-lying or semi-reclined position, supported by pillows to enhance your relaxation and ensure your safety.

 

Soft lighting, calming music, and a tranquil atmosphere will contribute to your relaxation and overall comfort during the massage. Your modesty and privacy will be respected at all times, and only the areas being worked on will be exposed.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY

Pregnancy and Post-natal Massage

“I suffered hugely in pregnancy with Pelvic girdle pain and no matter what I tried I couldn’t relieve it. A friend recommended Veronica and I booked in. Veronica was thorough in understanding the specific needs and was able to relieve the pain instantly. She shared her knowledge too which helped me to understand how to manage the pain too, however, just one massage and the pain was relieved almost instantly, that’s why I rebooked with her. Not to mention curing my carpel tunnel issue in my arm and hand. I am confident in her helping me and feel very supported when she goes above and beyond to help.”

"I came to Veronica whilst mid-way through my pregnancy. I had a lot of discomfort in my lower back, and hips particularly, and was also concerned about the circulation in my legs as I had previously had cramps in my calves repeatedly in previous pregnancies.

Veronica was extremely skilled at delivering a 90-minute pregnancy massage that helped alleviate my pains. I didn't experience any bouts of cramps whilst I had massages during the last 4 months of my pregnancy. My hips were also notably improved, particularly in comparison to the pain I'd had in previous pregnancies.

I had my treatments at Woolpit Clinic and the treatment room and atmosphere were excellent. 

I have already recommended Veronica's pregnancy massage to a number of pregnant friends of mine, one of whom has already been to see her! She has a real passion for helping mums-to-be and I love the focused effort she is trying to make in the mum-and-baby field of massage. I wish her every success, and suggest you all book a treatment with her ASAP!"
