What Does Pregnancy Massage Involve?
Our pregnancy massage services are tailored to your individual needs and preferences. A massage may involve long strokes, kneading, and circular movement on the topmost layer of muscle, or slower strokes and deeper pressure to target specific areas of tension. Massage techniques are commonly applied to areas of discomfort during pregnancy including the lower back, hips, and legs. Lymphatic drainage techniques may also be applied to reduce swelling in the legs and feet.
When Should I Start Pregnancy Massage?
The best time to start massage therapy for pregnancy is after the first trimester, when the risk of miscarriage is lower. However, it’s always best to consult with your doctor or midwife before starting any massage therapy during pregnancy to ensure it’s safe and appropriate to do so.
How Can Labour Massage Ease Childbirth?
Our labour massage in Melbourne can help to relieve pain and discomfort, increase blood circulation, and stimulate the release of endorphins. It can also promote relaxation and reduce anxiety, helping the mother cope with the intensity of labour and improve the overall birthing experience.
When Should I Consider Labour Massage?
Antenatal massage is most commonly used during the active phase of labour when the contractions become stronger and more frequent. However, some women find it helpful during the earlier stages of labour or even during pregnancy to prepare themselves physically and mentally for childbirth.
Should I Prepare for a Labour Massage?
It’s important to ensure that your support team is aware of your desire for labour massage and is prepared to assist you. You can also practice self-massage techniques and make sure that you’ve discussed your needs and preferences with your pregnancy massage therapist.
Is Pregnancy & Labour Massage Safe?
Yes, labour and pregnancy massage in Melbourne is safe when carried by a qualified and experienced therapist who is trained and understands the unique needs of pregnant and labouring women. If you have a high-risk pregnancy, it’s important to consult with your doctor or midwife before receiving a massage. In some cases, massage therapy may not be recommended.
How Often Can I Receive a Massage?
The frequency of prenatal massage in Melbourne can vary depending on your individual needs and preferences. Some women choose to receive massage once a week or once a month. Your therapist can work with you to create a schedule that suits your needs.
