Pregnancy is a time when the body needs all the help it can get, as such pregnancy massage can be a great addition to your health regime. This is a time when the pregnant woman’s body goes through many physical, emotional, and hormonal changes and all these changes are usually accompanied with aches, pains, and numerous areas of discomfort. The pregnancy massage offered our therapists at Melbourne Natural Therapies is a great way to deal with all the discomfort associated with pregnancy.
What Is The Right Time To Get A Pregnancy Massage?
Many pregnancy massage therapists, as well as Gynecologists, suggest waiting until the end of the first trimester before receiving a pregnancy massage. This is because it is in the first twelve weeks of the pregnancy that the fetus goes through many important developmental stages. You need to observe as much care as possible in taking care of the developing fetus during these first twelve weeks of your pregnancy. In saying that there is no strong evidence to suggest that pregnancy massage is dangerous during this time so we leave it up to the individual to decide when they would like to receive treatment.
How Often Should I Get A Pregnancy Massage?
When you book with one of our pregnancy massage therapists at Melbourne Natural Therapies they will get a detailed history of any past or present pregnancy complications and issues, and your personal preferences to determine how often you should book in. Getting pregnancy massage fortnightly is recommended by many pregnancy massage therapists in order to enjoy maximum benefits, however once again we prefer clients to have all the information and make an informed decision for themselves as to how often they would like to come.
Are There Any Adverse Effects From Pregnancy Massage?
As long as the pregnancy is stable, getting a pregnancy massage from an experienced pregnancy massage therapist is perfectly safe. If you are someone suffering from high blood pressure, diabetes, or experiencing abdominal pain, you need to first consult your doctor before receiving a pregnancy massage.
