Is Massage Safe During Pregnancy?
Many mothers are concerned about how massage might affect their pregnancy or health of their baby. Massage is completely safe, and is recommended by Physiotherapist, Doctors & Specialists due to the many health benefits.
Before your massage you will be required to complete a questionnaire to understand your pregnancy journey and if you are suffering from any medical conditions. You and your babies safety is our priority. You will be asked to position yourself comfortably onto the massage table, ensuring you are comfortable before we begin. Throughout your massage if you begin to feel uncomfortable we will help to reposition you. We want to make this experience as enjoyable as possible, leaving you feel completely relaxed.
Why Women's Health is Important
Women go through significant changes and events (even despite childbirth) that can cause problems later on in life.
These problems are very common and can easily be managed and treated.
If you’ve just recently given birth, planning on returning to exercise post pregnancy, have concerns regarding incontinence or experiencing any other concerns, please put your health first and book in for a consultation.
