Myofitness offers a variety of pregnancy massages to support and care for expectant mothers throughout their pregnancy journey. Our experienced therapists are trained to provide both table and futon massages, and can tailor the treatment to the stage of pregnancy. For the earlier stages, table massages are recommended, while futon massages are ideal for the third trimester when the belly is larger. To ensure comfort for both mother and baby, all massages are performed with the mother in a side-lying position with the use of large, comfortable pillows.
Pregnancy massage is a form of therapeutic massage that is specifically designed to address the needs of pregnant women. It is a safe and effective way to alleviate the physical and emotional stress that can occur during pregnancy.
During pregnancy, the body undergoes many changes, including an increase in weight and a shift in the centre of gravity, which can cause strain on the muscles and joints. Pregnancy massage can help to alleviate this strain by reducing muscle tension and promoting relaxation. It can also help to improve circulation, which can reduce swelling and discomfort in the legs and feet.
In addition to its physical benefits, pregnancy massage can also provide emotional support during this important time. Pregnancy can be a stressful and emotional time for many women, and massage can help to reduce stress and anxiety. It can also promote a sense of well-being and connection between the mother and the baby.
Pregnancy massage is considered safe for most women, but it is best avoided during the first trimester, when the risk of miscarriage is highest. It is also important to communicate with the therapist during the massage, to ensure that the pressure and techniques used are comfortable and do not cause any discomfort.
Our pregnancy massage is tailored to provide both therapeutic and relaxing benefits to expectant mothers. Our therapists use a combination of techniques to address areas of muscle tension and stress, while still promoting relaxation. A firmer pressure can be applied to areas such as the lower back, neck, and shoulders to alleviate pregnancy-related aches and pains. This treatment is designed to soothe the body and provide the pampering and relaxation that every mother-to-be deserves.
