Pregnancy Massage

Pregnancy Massage & Shiatsu

Studies indicate that massage therapy performed during pregnancy can reduce anxiety, decrease symptoms of depression, relieve muscle aches and joint pains, and improve labour outcomes and newborn health.

This treatment is performed with a combination of techniques from Holistic Massage, Shiatsu and Rebozo.

Pregnancy Massage aims to relax muscle tension and improve lymphatic and blood circulation through mild pressure applied to the muscle groups of the body. This is the recommended prenatal massage method during pregnancy because it addresses many common discomforts associated with the skeletal and circulatory changes brought on by hormone shifts during pregnancy.

Shiatsu is a holistic approach which combines therapeutic massage strokes with gentle stretching techniques, and its name literally means “finger pressure”. An officially recognised massage therapy in Japan, shiatsu has also become a popular form of massage in Western countries. Shiatsu works according to the principle that the stimulation of certain pressure points on the body can be used to heal the body, treat pain and improve overall physical and mental wellbeing.

Rebozo is a traditional woven shawl used by Mexican women. Traditional Mexican midwives use the Rebozo to do the ‘manteada’, a rocking massage technique. The Rebozo massage is very relaxing, it balances and relaxes the pelvis, lower back, womb and ligaments; allowing more room for the womb to settle into her rightful place.

Treatment is carried out on yoga mats or futon on the floor. Blankets and bolsters are used to prop the body up in various positions, so that you are always comfortable.
