Prenatal & Postnatal Care
Pregnancy & post-natal care has come a long way in the past 50 years and the knowledge, understanding & choices of therapy now available are much more accessible with highly experienced therapists who have taken on extra education to help an expectant mother to have the most pain-free experience possible, as well as help to recovery from the strain of pregnancy & birth.
At Integrated Body Therapies we offer a full body or specific area pregnancy massage and help with post-natal recovery. We aim to create a space for you to feel the benefits of a rebalancing and relaxing treatment and are confident in delivering your service to fit your current needs regardless of the journey you experience. Whatever you are feeling during or after pregnancy, we are here to work with you to keep you feeling your best.
So what can pregnancy massage help with exactly?
Easing lower back pain or sciatica
Reducing swelling in the lower extremities
Easing shoulder and neck tension
Improving the lymphatic system
Pregnancy massage at Integrated Body Therapies aims to help with both physical and emotional changes that are continuously occurring in this amazing process. You will be comfortably positioned side-lying or seated and we use oils that are unscented should you have any olfactory sensitivity at this time. In spite of what you may have heard in the past, massage is safe at all stages of pregnancy, however some people prefer to wait until after 12 weeks to treat just for mutual peace of mind. We also recognise that there are many myths and long held beliefs about what you should or should not do during pregnancy, but rest assured, we are up to date on the biological facts and look to support you as an individual. If you have questions, do ask!
