Pregnancy massage is a gentle, relaxing massage that can be used safely throughout the second and third trimesters of pregnancy. It is a popular complementary therapy that can be used for back pain when choices for pain relief, such as medication, can be limited. From weeks 38 onwards there are specific techniques and pressure points we can stimulate which are meant to help with the induction of labour. Full body massages are still possible if required through side lying, which is also made comfortable through the use of extra pillows. Please have large pillows available and your therapist will help you get into a comfortable position. At no point will you be asked to lie on your stomach, or back in the latter stages of pregnancy. These positions allow for a deeper massage to be done to the upper back and legs – areas which can get quite tight and sore due to the increased pressure on the body. Benefits of pregnancy massage may include: Eases aching muscles, particularly in upper 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
