Massage During Pregnancy
For thousands of years, pregnancy, labour and childbirth have been a female-centred and tactile experience. What are now considered routine aspects of pregnancy and labour were then potentially life-threatening and led to a gradual increase in a culture of medical management
Understand the Trend
This trend has been changing for some years with individuals and couples being actively encouraged to learn more about, and become involved in, the whole pregnancy and birthing experience.
Understand the reasons
The medical profession provides a valuable and indispensable framework for technical care. However, as Therapists, we can bring comfort and pleasure through touch.
Understand the benefits
Touch in its many forms brings solace, relief of aches, pain and stiffness, and gives emotional support and reassurance. With a knowledgeable and well-guided hand, massage during pregnancy adds to the enjoyment of the birthing experience. Hydrotherm™ offers a unique potential for comfort and in combination with better awareness of the physiological changes of pregnancy, the skilled Therapist will make an important addition to their repertoire. Massage is sometimes listed as a contra-indication to pregnancy – but rarely with any justification. It is certainly important to consider treatment carefully, but correctly administered, massage is not only potentially free of risk – but also extremely beneficial!
