Enjoy a deeply relaxing, and wonderfully nurturing prenatal or postnatal massage.I am a fully qualified and insured Massage Therapist specialising in Prenatal , Postnatal and Deep Tissue massage based at 'The Practice' Osteopath Clinic in Ferndown.
Having gone through the miracle of childbirth twice, I
know what an amazing and emotional roller coaster it can be! I also know how
much extra strain our bodies are put under during and after this time.
Massage is extremely beneficial, not only to the mother but to the unborn baby as well. There are numerous emotional and physiological benefits associated with prenatal and postnatal massage and I want to be able to share it with all of you!
I’m a VTCT fully qualified and FHT insured therapist. In 2003 I qualified in Body massage and Sports Massage therapy, however it was my own pregnancy with my first daughter that inspired me to pursue and train in pregnancy massage. Only then did I fully appreciate how truly amazing our bodies are!
Regular prenatal massage can...
swelling in hands, feet and ankles
-Lessens sciatic pain
-Eases muscular discomfort
-Strengthens the immune system
-Helps relieve anxiety and depression
-Encourages the release of Oxytocin - the pain reducing hormone providing vital relief of pain during labour and birth
- Improves sleep
-Increases blood circulation, which provides more oxygen and nutrients to both mother and fetus.
…just to name a few!
Acupressure points can also be included in the massage to...
the symptoms of morning sickness
-Helps reduce leg cramping
-After 40 weeks certain points can help induce labour.
Research by the University of Miami has also proven that regular massage can not only reduce Labour pain but shorten the length of Labour by up to 3 hours!
