Thai Orchid Massage offers pregnancy massage in Elwood to help replenish the mind and body of the expectant mother during her pregnancy. By targeting specific pressure points, the muscles are loosened and areas that are carrying extra weight (the legs, feet and back) are softened. Our Thai massage for pregnancy helps to rejuvenate the body of any mum to be. We know that during pregnancy, your body is working hard to nourish your little one inside. For the health of your unborn baby, our pregnancy massage in Elwood works to de-stress you, keeping your body calm so that stress hormones are kept at bay. Pregnancy can be a tiring time, but Thai massage for pregnancy can be just what you need for a little pick me up and self-care time just for you. Our expertly trained therapists can offer you pregnancy massage right up to your due date. We know how to accommodate your beautiful growing body so you will be in perfect comfort and safety.
There are many benefits of pregnancy massage, including:
When your body is all tied up in knots, it usually means your mind is highly anxious too, as your being is a holistic system. Our pregnancy massage in Elwood works on your pressure points to relieve tension and encourage relaxation of the body and mind. All massage involves the beneficial experience of human touch, providing a feeling of connection that’s great for mental health.
Dizzy spells can be very disconcerting, and can be brought on by stress or other medical conditions. Our Thai massage for pregnancy may alleviate symptoms of dizzy spells by anchoring you into your body through grounding flowing strokes and kneading handwork.
When we use the pressure points of your body during pregnancy massage in Elwood, many aches and complaints can be minimised. This is because we’re removing tension from the body, which is the very thing that causes aches.
When you’re carrying a baby in your body, you’re supporting the weight of more than just one person, so it makes sense that you may experience leg pain. By focusing on special points in the body that determine the flow of energy, leg pain can be minimised.
No stomach rub – Avoid having your stomach rubbed, as pressure on that area can be uncomfortable for pregnant women.
Don’t lay on your back – Are you in the second half of your pregnancy? Be careful not to lay on your back while the massage occurs, as the mass of your baby plus uterus can put stress on blood vessels and impede circulation to your placenta.
Light on the legs – It’s important to only do light massage on the legs, as pregnant women are prone to blood clots and deep tissue work can dislodge them. This is the only area where it’s necessary to limit the depth of the massage.
