We know that with the wonderful gift of pregnancy comes a range of uncomfortable side effects such as:
- Aches and pains
- Swollen hands and feet
Weight gain in the front of the body causes mothers to lean back which changes your centre of gravity placing greater stress on your lumbar spine bringing about sore and achy lower backs.
A relaxing pregnancy massage
can help ease those stressed muscles and bring back a balance to your body during this exhilarating time. A massage also helps to:
- Steady your pulse and blood pressure
- Help with regular blood flow to the uterus, placenta and foetus
- Reduce fear and anxiety
- Improve your energy levels
- Help to ease built up fluid in your lower limbs
- Activate the parasympathetic nervous system to reduce stress
At Bureta Physiotherapy we can perform the massage while you sit on a comfortable massage chair. Also with the marvellous addition of a holo to our massage table, you will be able to blissfully lie on your stomach and chest again, while your lower back is comfortably supported.
Maternity massage is safe and effective for women with uncomplicated, low risk pregnancies. Written consent from your mid-wife or doctor is needed for any women with high risks such as cardiac, pulmonary or liver disorders; chronic hypertension and previous pregnancy problems. If you have any worries or questions just give us a ring
