Pregnancy is a life altering experience for each expectant mother. With the many changes occurring in her body, physically and emotionally, she will be in need of the nurture and support that aromatherapy massage can provide.
Aromatherapy Massage offers a chance for Mums-to-Be to snuggle up with comfy pillows while being gently massaged with safe and supportive strokes. Many years of experience and professional training allow the perfect treatment to be given at each stage of pregnancy.
An advice service is also available for oils to use during labour and after the birth.
Gentle strokes, without essential oils may help you to:
Settle your body in early pregnancy.
Manage your feelings about your pregnancy
Find a place for some essential relaxation
Certain Essential Oils, under guidance, may be useful for nausea and vomiting
After 12 weeks, a safe dilution of essential oils is used as you lie comfortably tucked up for your massage. This may help with:
Easing muscular aches
Addressing sleep issues
Depression and anxiety
Supported in a side-lying position, using appropriate oils, aromatherapy massage may:
Reduce stress on weight baring joints
Release oxytocin into the body
Manage oedema and swelling in the joints
Towards the end of your pregnancy help to prepare your body for the birth
Once you feel ready for a massage after the birth of your baby you can begin to:
