In the clinic, we provide pregnancy cushions to support you and a special pregnancy massage bed with a ‘sling’ to allow for your belly.
This provides more comfort for you and baby, by enabling you to lie semi-prone with the weight of baby supported.
It enables the back and hips to relax and allows for easier access for therapy to the hips, buttocks and lower back.
For best results it is advised to book for a regular massage every 3 weeks in the first Trimester, then every 2 weeks in the Second and once a week in the Third Trimester.
This will assist the recurring problems of sciatica, leg cramps, back, hip and shoulder pain, sleeplessness and restless legs.
It also helps prepare your body for the Birth process by softening connective tissue, increasing muscle and joint strength and flexibility, minimising associated pain and discomfort, creating more confidence and calm.
