Pregnancy is a time of great physical change. It is also a very emotional time. My nurturing pregnancy massage feels great and can bring huge benefits to both you and your unborn baby. Pregnancy Massage is great for supporting you with symptoms experienced while you are expecting your baby.
Typical symptoms of the expectant mum include:
- Swollen ankles,
- Carpal tunnel syndrome,
- Lower back pain due to the shifts in weight,
- Hip, rib and shoulder pain,
- Neck stress,
- Postural problems
The massage, which is given during the second and third trimester, will be tailored to meet your needs so that it plays a part in your happy, healthy pregnancy, labour and postpartum period. I work with the whole back and shoulders, abdomen, arms and hands, legs and feet, face and scalp, or I can give more focused treatments to help with pain conditions.
Kinesio taping in pregnancy
As a Certified RockDoc, I can also use Rocktape which is a special type of kinesio tape used for common aches, pains and strains associated with pregnancy. Taping may support postural control, especially to give maximum support in late pregnancy. It does this by redistributing weight from the oblique abdominal muscles to the larger shoulder muscles and so alleviating lower back pain. It can also be used with all of the conditions listed above. More information on kinesio taping in pregnancy can be found on the kinesio taping page.
