REMEDIAL MASSAGE THERAPY

In addition to providing general remedial massage therapy for all clients we also provide:

  • PREGNANCY MASSAGE and

  • POSTNATAL MASSAGE

Massage in pregnancy and postpartum is a safe and effective therapy which may be used in conjunction with other treatments (e.g. physiotherapy or exercise therapy) or as a standalone treatment for musculoskeletal aches and pains such as low back pain neck and rib pain or pelvic girdle pain.

Pregnancy/prenatal massage can not only relieve muscle and joint pain in pregnant women but may also reduce stress, anxiety and reduce swelling in the arms and legs. Qualified massage practitioners are well trained in which areas to target and which to avoid altogether.

Your therapist will take a thorough history from you prior to treatment so your session can be tailored to your needs.

We then provide a specialised pregnancy cushion to enable you to lie face down for optimal comfort. It is recommended that from late second trimester that you are positioned on your side for treatment. Your massage experience will vary based on the type of massage yourself and your practitioner decides is right for you.
