Not only does Pregnancy Massage benefit the mother, it releases your “Feel Good’ endorphins which can be felt by yourself and your baby. Massage is a magical experience, which helps ‘Mama2b’ and ‘MamaBirth&Beyond’ to support herself when her body is going through many changes.
Shiatsu is a traditional Japanese hands-on healing therapy offering bodywork using acupressure points. Shiatsu helps to rebalance the flow of Qi (energy) in the body through touch.
It involves a focused touch and breathing techniques, gentle pressure on acupressure points and holding techniques. Use of palms, fingers, elbows, knees and feet may be used to relax tight muscles. Gentle stretches and joint rotations help loosen and mobilise the joints. Rocking and muscle release techniques are used along the meridians (energy lines) of the body.
It is safe and available in pregnancy throughout all trimesters and postnatally. Shiatsu inducing acupressure points can be used around/on the due date of the baby to help relaxation in labour.
This massage is carried out on the floor in Supine, Prone and Side positions in all three trimesters and postnatal. Loose comfortable clothing can be worn.
If you do want to bring your baby, it is advisable to book a longer appointment to allow for feeding if needed. It is really important for you to feel comfortable. If you’re breastfeeding, your breasts may feel a little uncomfortable, so I recommend expressing shortly before your appointment. This allows you to truly enjoy your treatment and experience much-needed rest and relaxation.
