Pre-Natal Massage is extremely beneficial for the expectant mother. Some mothers are nervous about massage in pregnancy so lets just clear up one thing. Massage will not harm mother or baby. It is impossible for massage to cause miscarriage, no matter what trimester! It is performed in a side-lying position, propped up with pillows for comfort.
Pre-natal massage is therapeutic bodywork that focuses on the special needs of the mother-to-be as her body goes through the dramatic changes of pregnancy. It enhances the function of muscles and joints, improves circulation and general body tone, and relieves mental and physical fatigue. The gentle, non-invasive approach of prenatal massage can ease discomfort associated with pregnancy, help the mother-to-be prepare for labour and provides expecting women with emotional support and nurturing touch
Benefits for the body and mind
The benefits of prenatal massage include a wide range of physiological, emotional and psychological benefits.
Massage alleviates stress on weight-bearing joints and musculo-fascial structures. It assists in remedying many of the common discomforts experienced during pregnancy - muscular discomforts, lower-back pain, upper-back pain, headaches, leg cramps, sciatica, stiffness, tension and knots, carpal tunnel syndrome, headaches, heartburn and acid reflux, fatigue, varicose veins, nasal congestion, shortness of breath, edema of the lower extremities, neck pain, interscapular pain, sacroiliac and hip joint pain and constipation

Post-Natal Massage is also extremely beneficial after the birth for the mother. Arvigo Abdominal Therapy is highly recommended, which improves healing for Diastasis Recti, provides support and healing for postpartum depression and supports faster healing of the uterine ligaments which stretch significantly during pregnancy and birth. Arvigo Abdominal Therapy supports the uterus coming back to optimal position in as timely a way as possible and aids in healing the ligaments or scars from Cesarean births. A little-known benefit of this abdominal massage is its ability to correct a prolapsed or tipped uterus. 75% of women are walking around with a prolapsed uterus and don’t even know it. The uterus is held in position by muscles and ligaments that connect it to the pelvis. These uterine ligaments are designed to stretch for either a baby growing or when bladders and bowels become full. When these ligaments and muscles become weak and loose, they can no longer hold up the uterus correctly. Other causes are falls, car accidents, pregnancy and labour, running on concrete, chronic constipation high-impact activities like dancing, aerobics, horseback riding, gymnastics and even wearing heels.
The uterus can fall into any number of incorrect positions. If it falls backwards it can even fuse onto the colon, causing toxins to be absorbed from the colon. Many women are told that a tipped or prolapsed uterus is no big deal. In fact, it is. When the uterus is incorrectly aligned, the normal flow of blood, lymph and energy are constricted and can disrupt nerve connection. The circulation of blood to the uterus, ovaries, bladder, and bowel is blocked. This causes many adverse health problems. Just a few extra ounces sitting on blood and lymph vessels can cause havoc throughout the different systems in the body. It is also a wonderful way to naturally regulate and improve painful periods. That’s right - periods are not supposed to be painful. The Maya believe a woman’s centre is her uterus. “If a woman’s uterus is out of balance, so is she,” - Don Elijo Panti.
This external, non-invasive massage strengthens the ligaments and muscles that support the uterus and ovaries. It can take anywhere from a few minutes to a few months to get the uterus to slide back into place. Long term effects of Cesarean birth scars are also addressed by this therapy and it's supporting modalities. For more information please CLICK HERE
Yoga is a wonderful therapy pre and post natal. One of the favourite things in my massage therapy for women who are pregnant is the gentle stretching which is something that is forgotten during pregnancy. As well as classic yoga poses, you'll focus on positions for labour, breathing and relaxation techniques and no previous experience of yoga is necessary.
The class is a time to relax, focus on your new baby and think about your wishes for the birth, with practical tips and plenty of time to ask questions. It’s also a great opportunity to meet other expectant mums. Benefits include:
