Is Pregnancy Massage Safe?
A common question we get here at the clinic is, ‘Is pregnancy massage safe?‘ Yes, it sure is! We love to care for pregnant women during this special time.
During pregnancy, the body undergoes profound changes, which can take their toll on mums-to-be and this is where our trained remedial therapists at Walter Road Chiropractic can help.
Remedial massage is safe for mum and baby through-out pregnancy. Our therapists adapts their techniques to suit the different stages of pregnancy and maximise your comfort throughout.
Massage throughout pregnancy is very safe! There is no research-based or clinical reason for not being able to have a pregnancy massage during the first trimester or throughout your full term.
What are the Benefits of Pregnancy Massage?
Just a few of the many benefits of pregnancy massage include:
- Decrease in aches and pains
- Reduction in stress level
- Assists in reduction of swelling in limbs
- Helps with postural changes due to pregnancy
- Improved sleep and breathing patterns
During your treatment you will usually be side lying supported with a range of pillows, lying face-down with the use of a pregnancy pillow or in a semi-reclined position, allowing you to lie comfortably during your massage.
Pregnancy massage is a great way to unwind, connecting you and your baby and preparing you for childbirth and parenting.
Our Morley Remedial Massage Therapists offer a range of different treatment techniques and are covered by most private health funds, meaning that you can claim a rebate for your treatment.
