a) HOW DOES THIS HELP?

We will use a variety of Swedish, Circulatory Massage (edemas) and Deep Tissue Massage techniques which involve longitudinal stripping, friction techniques and soft trigger point compression.

Our Pregnancy massage is more “therapeutic” rather than “relaxing” as we may use deeper massage techniques to bring a truly release of your muscles. Remember getting a “soft” and “relaxing” massage could be nice during your treatment but do you think the benefits will last at least a couple of weeks after? If you don’t like deeper techniques, the physio will adapt the treatment to your needs.

b) WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?

Generally, pregnancy massage will support an overall feeling of wellness. It will specifically help to reduce many stress symptoms common in pregnancy. This include:
• Relieve muscle tension and spasms.
• Improved lymph drainage in edema conditions.
• Improve neck, back and hips stiffness.
• Reduce headaches, sciatic nerve pain and leg cramps.
• Improves the sleep quality.
• Promote a positive mental attitude and lowers risk of anxiety and depression disorders.
• The stimulation of the skin helps to release the ¨LOVE HORMONE¨ which helps to progress labour, expel the placenta after birth and promote feelings of attachment and bonding between mother and baby.
• Massage also helps to release prolactin which prepares the body for breastfeeding by stimulating milk production.

c) HOW CAN THIS HAPPEN?

Muscle tension created by carrying the extra weight of a baby can be relieved by encouraging blood flow to the afflicted areas. This provides more nutrient-rich oxygen, increases the flow of lymphatic fluid, which flash out toxins and metabolic waste becoming an excellent way to reduce edemas and Carpal Tunnel Syndrome symptoms.

Tight buttocks can cause sciatic pain as it irritates the nerve receptors within the muscle. Compression techniques will reduce tightness by relieving nerve irritation and muscular discomfort.

The usual aches and pains of pregnancy are countered by the release of serotonin, your body’s natural anti-pain chemical, which is stimulated by massage.

BELFAST PHYSIO AND MASSAGE

d) WHAT HAPPEN DURING THE PREGNANCY MASSAGE?

At Belfast Physio and Massage, we have the best and probably the unique massage technique performed by a Physiotherapist.

Your therapist will chat through your medical history and any current or previous injuries. They will do a physical assessment if they think is need it, prior to starting your Pregnancy massage.

We take extra care to ensure our patients are comfortable. Side-line positioning with supportive special pregnancy pillow will be used to alleviate the extra strain on the lower back and pelvic areas when the pressure of massage techniques are applied.

Finally, they’ll use grapes oil and bamboo sticks according to your needs.

HOW DO I KNOW IF PREGNANCY MASSAGE WILL BENEFIT ME?

Women with normal, low-risk pregnancies can benefit greatly from the variety of massage techniques. However, women in high-risk pregnancies should consult their doctor or midwife before beginning one of our massage therapy programs. If you experience discomfort at any time during the pregnancy massage, tell your therapist immediately.

HOW MANY MONTHS DO I NEED TO HAVE TO GET A PREGNANCY MASSAGE?

Women low-risk pregnancies can begin massage therapy at any point in their pregnancy – during the first, second, or third trimester.

WHAT ABOUT POSTNATAL MASSAGE?

Postpartum massage has been shown to be effective for a quicker recovery and better health. You may start getting your massage treatment as soon as you feel comfortable. Please make sure you consult your doctor or midwife before booking with us.

Any position is safe after delivery, but may be adjusted for your comfort or specific treatment.
