Pregnancy massage incorporating Hot Stones
Rest assured that when you come for a Pregnancy Massage with me I will understand the specific symptoms you have related to your pregnancy. My special pre natal massage with Hot Stones aims not only to relax and soothe, but also address the new strains being placed on your body as you progress to full term. Common ailments include Carpal Tunnel, Hip and thigh pain, swollen ankles, sore knees and additional strain in the low back area. I combines my knowledge of remedial massage and blend it elegantly into a gentle yet effective treatment. I incorporate stretches, acupressure where appropriate, deep work to tight areas and long flowing strokes to elongate and create space.
When can I have this treatment?
Pregnancy Massage is suitable from 3 months to full term, and is carried out in the side-lying position with pillows to provide comfort and nurture.
Are Hot Stones safe?
Every consideration is made to make you feel comfortable and if you prefer to sit or lean against a table that is fine also. It is perfectly safe as stones and heat are not used in the abdominal area. If you are accustomed to baths or warm showers then you will be fine with Hot Stones. Adding Hot stones to the treatment provides instant relaxation and softening of tight areas like the shoulders and neck. This adds an extra dimension to an already deeply soothing experience. Massage at this time can be very helpful in reducing swelling and water retention on the ankles and calves.
Benefits of pregnancy massage include:
- Eases aching muscles, particularly in upper and lower back
- Improved circulation
- Helps with fluid retention in the legs
- Relieves tiredness and fatigue from the extra weight carried
- Helps you to relax from the pressures of the pregnancy and gives you a bit of pampering before your baby arrives
- relaxing for baby
