Is it safe to have massage therapy when you are pregnant?
Our massage therapists specialize in pregnancy massage. All our therapists are fully qualified, certificated Specialist Pregnancy Therapists.
There are also many therapists who will not massage pregnant ladies out of fear that something terrible is going to happen, yet we believe this is a time for women to be pampered and treated special. You need to stop, think and appreciate just how special and wonderfully women are made, with that tiny little baby well protected in the mothers womb surrounded securely by amniotic fluid.
Massage helps greatly with all the tension and pain experienced during pregnancy, caused by the extra weight and the many body changes that take place. Some of the many physical benefits to having a massage whilst pregnant are: reduction in peripheral swelling, soothing of the nervous system, helps to prevent insomnia, muscle cramps along with leg and back pain. Care must be taken during the first trimester but pregnancy massage is beneficial throughout the whole pregnancy unless the treating Doctor has a reason for them not to be massaged.
We would prefer to wait until after the first trimester for you to have a massage, waiting until your pregnancy is well established.
Pregnant women benefit greatly from massage. It is common for a lot of lower back pain along with sacral ligament problems, as a lot of strain is put on the lower back especially in the later stages of pregnancy. Neck and shoulders is another area that can tighten quite dramatically with the added strain as the breasts become larger. Plus it is an opportunity for you to feel pampered.
So rest assured, massage is GREAT for you while you are pregnant. Our Therapists look forward to seeing you soon!
