Benefits of Pregnancy Massage

Not only can pregnancy massage help if you have a specific issue, it is also a great way to reduce stress, reduce general muscle or joint aches and pains and increase circulation for better blood flow and lymphatic drainage. This in turn can reduce any swelling in the limbs, as well as decreasing stress on weight bearing joints.

Other benefits may include:

  • Overall stress reduction and deep relaxation
  • Enhanced wellbeing and mental clarity
  • Relief from cramps or ongoing pain issues
  • A chance to have time out for you during at high-demand time in your life
  • Ongoing management and relief of injuries unrelated to pregnancy
  • Relief for arthritis, sciatica or postural issues
  • Improved energy, circulation and sleep

It is usually perfectly safe for pregnant women to have a massage, however this may not be advisable if you have certain health conditions, such as heart conditions, blood pressure issues or diabetes. We work hard to make sure you have all the information you need to make an informed choice and give you the most supportive, safe and comfortable environment possible for your treatment.

What to expect from a massage in pregnancy

We know that pregnancy can be a joyous time, but it can also come with health and wellbeing challenges. That’s why we have created and refined our pregnancy massage offerings at CHH over many years and with hundreds of pregnant women. We are well-known for our safe, effective treatments, to ensure you feel pampered and looked after no matter what.

Pregnancy massage includes:

  • Assessment and initial consultation to ascertain any issues or concerns
  • Swedish massage techniques, using long strokes for tight or stiff muscles
  • Deep-tissue massage using firm pressure focusing on problem areas
  • Stress relief techniques that uses comfortable pressure for releasing tension
  • Assistance with posture and breathing techniques

To avoid any potential issues or impacts that may result from massage for pregnant women, we discuss all options with you and may do a risk assessment to ensure you don’t have any pre-existing conditions where you may not be advised to receive massage. These may include blood pressure issues, heart and lung conditions and diabetes. Your safety and comfort are of the upmost importance to us.
