Pregnancy is undoubtedly one of the most challenging experiences many women go through. Carrying and nurturing new life results in significant physiological and psychological changes that can take a toll on the body. Additional physical stress and strain on the body can also cause other stresses, while the hormones that come with pregnancy can cause mood swings, which adds stress to any situation. Fortunately, Melbourne Chiro Clinic has highly qualified pregnancy massage therapists who are able to provide relaxing and beneficial pregnancy massage in Melbourne.
From prenatal massages through to postnatal massages, our North Melbourne based pregnancy massage therapy can help relieve unnecessary pain, make you feel more comfortable in your own body, improve mental and physical wellbeing, and provide you with natural support strategies to assist you through every stage of your pregnancy.
Many women are concerned about pregnancy massage, as they are aware they can’t lie down on a classic massage table. Our therapists will give you an alternative position that will still allow you to receive the most effective treatment.
Due to hormonal changes and an increased physical load, pregnant women can suffer from a range of afflictions. Arranging for a prenatal or postnatal pregnancy massage at Melbourne Chiro Clinic boasts a variety of benefits, including pain relief, tension alleviation, and a reduction in stress.
The extra weight of a baby can add pressure to weight-bearing joints, including the lower back, pelvis and ankles, even if precautions are taken to prevent this. Sometimes pain and injuries are unavoidable. If you have any problem areas such as these, inform your pregnancy massage therapist so they can focus on relieving this pain.
Other benefits of massage during pregnancy include the following:
It’s important to seek out a qualified pregnancy massage therapist rather than going to your regular therapist when expecting a baby. While regular massage therapists are highly trained and knowledgeable on the way muscles interact with each other and the way the body works, a pregnancy massage therapist has specialised knowledge. They are aware of the changes occurring in your body and the way your body is different to those who are not pregnant. Our massage therapists also know where to apply additional pressure to relieve pain and what areas to avoid, ensuring no harm comes to the baby.
Based in North Melbourne, you can trust Melbourne Chiro Clinic to provide highly effective and safe pregnancy massage for local residents and surrounding suburbs including Brunswick, Parkville and Carlton.
