Why is prenatal massage important?

  • Health benefits for mum and bub
  • Relief from common aches and pains
  • Improved sleep
  • Increased movement – enjoy quality time with your family again.
  • Balancing hormones and emotions

Are you suffering from:

  • sciatica (shooting pain from your glutes that often travels down the back of your leg)
  • lower back and/or tailbone pain
  • headaches
  • swelling
  • carpal tunnel
  • pain between your shoulder blades/bra line pain
  • restless legs
  • leg cramps
  • lack of sleep
  • overwhelming emotions
  • inability to switch off/unwind

With regular prenatal massage, these issues can be relieved providing improved sleep quality and increased movement. As a result you’ll be able to enjoy playtime with your older children and when baby arrives the ability to feed without discomfort.

With regular prenatal massage, these issues can be relieved providing improved sleep quality and increased movement. As a result you’ll be able to enjoy playtime with your older children and when baby arrives the ability to feed without discomfort.

Research suggests that massage during pregnancy provides additional oxygen to the baby and reduces stress on the mother. Massage offers fantastic health benefits to mum and bub during a time when your body, mind and emotions can feel overloaded. But most importantly it provides effective relief for an aching body.

The benefits of pregnancy massage in regards to labour

It’s important to be prepared for labour both physically and mentally. At Maternal Instincts Massage, I can help you achieve both. Regular prenatal massage helps increase your mind body connection making for greater communication between the body and brain when labour arrives. Induction massage can help encourage labour by stimulating contractions and relaxing the muscles involved in the delivery process helping achieve an easier birth.

Having a calm mind can help trigger labour once your body is ready. Allow me to help you switch off from the to do lists and any anxiety you may be having. Enjoy some time where you can breathe and focus on the end result. Massage can also have a positive effect on milk production as it can help to regulate the hormones associated with feeding. It is a well-known fact that stress not only inhibits labour but also decreases milk supply. The benefits of massage during (and after) pregnancy are too great to list them all!

Why choose Maternal Instincts Massage?

Some massage clinics offer to accommodate pregnant clients among their list of many services. However, at Maternal Instincts Massage the focus is solely on women during the pre and postnatal journey. Because of this I can offer the most trusted and effective treatments available. I’ve offered relief and comfort to thousands of women over the years. This is done through my healing hands but also through our amazing custom built table. Owner and therapist, Angela has supported women during this passage of time with not only her expertise but also her passion, which is why we she has become the Shire’s most popular and reliable pregnancy massage therapist.

What to expect?

A treatment at Maternal Instincts Massage starts the minute you arrive. Turn off your phone and start relaxing. If it’s your first treatment with us, you’ll be asked to fill out a form. Of course bathrooms are on site and available if needed (who are we kidding, you’ll need it). You’ll then be shown to the treatment room where you’ll have a discussion with your therapist regarding your pregnancy and current conditions you may be experiencing and shown how our amazing table works. This is so your treatment can be tailored to exactly fit your needs. After all your questions have been answered and you’re ready, you’ll be left in peace to disrobe down to your underwear, then (as gracefully as you can) manoeuvre on to the table and cover yourself with a towel. After a few minutes, your therapist will return and check your comfort. Then the magic can begin!
