The Wellness Place offers pre-natal massage with the comfort of our exclusive pregnancy massage table. Our highly experienced and qualified team of therapists are available to help ease your aches and pains caused by the changes your body will undergo over the next 9 months.
Pregnancy or Prenatal massages are slightly different from the typical relaxation massage that you may have gotten in the past but the benefits are mostly the same. During pregnancy, the body goes through some amazing and wonderful changes as your baby grows but those changes cause you to feel aches and pains throughout your whole body. At The Wellness Place we have an adaptive pregnancy massage table that allows you to have a safe and comfortable massage which can accommodate the bodies growing belly and breasts and not cause discomfort while lying down.
Research has shown that massage can reduce the stress hormones in the body and relax and loosen your muscles. It also can increase blood flow around your body or to a certain area which is extremely important while you’re pregnant. Prenatal massages can aid your lymphatic system and if you don’t know, the lymphatic system is super important during pregnancy. While the growing foetus has the placenta which filters most of the harmful toxins in the body, it doesn’t stop viruses from entering their bodies. The lymphatic system helps to filter the body of harmful toxic build up, viruses, reduces inflammation and cleanses the blood cells. (it also aids in the reduction of swelling in your feet!!)
During pregnancy, regular prenatal massages may not only help you to relax, but may also relieve:
- Joint pain
- Neck and back pain
- Leg cramping
- Swelling in your hands and feet
- Carpal tunnel pain
- Headaches and sinus congestion
So, if you are at this exciting time of your life, why not reward yourself with some relaxation and time out on the massage table! Or if you are in a bit of pain with your pregnancy, let us help you! It’s time to look after you!
