At ProHealth 365, our physiotherapists provide massage at all stages of pregnancy to help address some of the common discomforts many women encounter during Pregnancy massage.

Low back pain
Pregnancy-related lower back pain is very common, especially toward the end of pregnancy. It may be caused by a number of things, including compensating for the baby’s shift in the center of gravity, the weight gain during pregnancy, pre-existing postural habits, and previous injuries. To identify the root cause, your physiotherapist will analyse your posture and have a thorough conversation with you. Your demands will be taken into account while therapy is established to allow you to move more comfortably. Additionally, you will be offered techniques to assist you in maintaining this improvement while caring for your growing baby.

Pelvic pain
For many women, pelvic pain can be a significant problem during pregnancy. Similar to back pain, it can be brought on by a variety of circumstances, including compensating for the baby’s constant growth, the baby’s position, the hormone relaxin, which softens ligaments, prior injuries, and pre-existing postural habits. Symphus Pubis Pain, is related to this. Your physiotherapist will conduct an extensive consultation and examination to determine the causes of your pain and administer a treatment to reduce the discomfort and enhance movement without pain.

Swollen Legs/Ankles
Ankle oedema, or swelling, is frequent during pregnancy. They might happen as a result of excessive heat, flights, hormonal changes, postural habits, the location of the baby, and compression of lymph veins. Your ankles can be massaged to drain the fluid, which will help to lessen the swelling, pain, and stiffness that come along with it. You can control your swelling by getting a lymph drainage massage and using the self-treatment the physiotherapist will teach you.

Similar to other times, pregnancy can cause tension headaches. This is frequently postural and brought on by muscle strain. Your tension headaches may be treated with a deep tissue pregnancy massage. Your physiotherapist will conduct a thorough consultation to ascertain the causes of your headache and administer the best course of action for you.

Benefits of Pregnancy Massage:

Improved sleep
Health, emotions, energy levels, and concentration levels can all be negatively impacted by sleep loss or insomnia. You can achieve a state of relaxation through massage that is comparable to sleep in terms of how well it allows for healing and restoration. When stress, pain, or illness have interfered with regular sleep habits, massage can help. Sadly, it won’t stop a new born from waking up for a 2 am feeding, but it will make that easier to handle.

Similar at previous periods in your life, stress can strike during pregnancy and after delivery. It affects your immune system, energy levels, mood, and sleep patterns, making you more prone to sickness. Massage is a way to help reduce stress levels during pregnancy.
