Earth therapies offer a specialised massage service to expectant mothers that is completely safe and effective. Why should pregnant mums use massage? During pregnancy mothers experience unique physical and emotional changes, resulting from increases in weight, shifting posture and increasing/decreasing hormone levels.
Despite this being a beautiful period of heightened expectation and joy, it also carries with it increased physical discomfort, ranging from muscular tension and headaches, to pressure on the knees.
Pregnancy massage (prenatal massage) is a natural, touch therapy treatment which alleviates these and other pregnancy related symptoms. Earth therapies only uses safe and proven massage techniques to ensure the increased well-being of the mother and child.
We have custom made tables especially designed for pregnancy massage. Our table has been designed so our beautiful mothers can receive massage while laying face down. It is important for the mother's body to feel comfortable, safe and supported while receiving massage.
We specialise in pregnancy massage and find that our style of pregnancy massage is unique and effective. Therefore it is important when choosing a therapist to ensure they have the appropriate qualifications and training.
The many benefits of pregnancy massage (prenatal massage) include:
- Delivers emotional support through nurturing touch.
- Increased circulation improves baby’s oxygen supply.
