Bruce Peninsula Pregnancy, Prenatal Massage Practitioner
Congratulations on your Great News! You have so much to look forward to and taking care of you both over the next 9 months is especially important. The Prenatal Massage we provide for woman in the Bruce Peninsula region brings incredible relaxation and natural pain relief to keep you healthy, flexible and pain free. At this special time in your life, treat yourself and your baby to a Pregnancy massage. As a specially trained Practitioner in Prenatal and Postnatal care, we use extraordinary pregnancy ‘body cushions’ to allow expectant moms to experience back massage laying comfortably on your belly . The ability of these cushions to grow with you during your pregnancy enables massage to counteract muscular aches and pains along the spine . These body cushions also allow massage in the side-laying position which is particularly effective in the 2nd trimester. Being able to comfortably support the body while laying on your side, especially in later stages of your pregnancy, allows for a full body massage that leaves both Mother-to-be and baby lulled into a state of relaxation
Utilizing specific stretches to mobilize the sacroiliac joints and gently expand the rib cage to accept the growing uterus, our pregnancy massage targets low back pain, hip pain and sciatica by releasing tight gluteal muscles, tendons and ligaments. This relieves pain and improves blood flow to the lower extremities to resolve leg cramping, a common condition associated with pregnancy.
We Help Prepare You for Babies Arrival
AromaSense Massge & Bodyworks also offers a very unique service to our pregnant client: we will train your care-givers to use Acupressure Analgesia during your labour. Your care-giver could be your husband, mother, sister, friend, midwife or partner. Learning specific Chinese Accupressure points and bodywork together assists you during labour and aids in releasing many natural endorphins.
This one hour hands-on session trains your care-giver to use acu-points on your body to relieve the pain of contractions, promote dilation and prevent radiating lumbar-sacral pain during your labour. Other points on the body are used during the second stage of labour as they aid the perineum to relax. In medical studies, 80% of pregnant women found these techniques to be very beneficial. An illustrated booklet is provided to all participants. TCM Moxibustion Treatments are available
DOULA Support Packages are also available. Ask for more Information at your next appointment
