Pregnancy & Post Natal Massage

During your pregnancy your body is rapidly changing. The increased weight pushes the pelvis forward. It changes the centre of gravity and creates extra pressure on the lower back, thighs, hips. It affects your posture dramatically. Your muscles need to accommodate these changes and they often get stressed more than they should, responding with pain and discomfort.

Pregnancy massage eases muscular discomforts and cramps. It helps to relieve the tension and stiffness you can experience during pregnancy. Regular massage during pregnancy brings reduced stress levels, and helps to ease the common discomforts that go along with being pregnant, relief from muscle pain and joint stiffness, as well as headaches. Massage can help to alleviate swelling that is associated with Pregnancy and can improve blood and lymph circulation as well as enhancing the mind/body awareness that leads to a more active participation in the pregnancy and birth process.

Trigger Point Therapy

Trigger points are manifested as small contraction knots in the muscles, that control the state of contraction, active ones may cause muscle spasm and referred pain.

Treatment consists of physical therapy, manipulation and stretching. A firm digital pressure is applied by the practitioner who locates the specific points causing pain and restricted movement. These points may often be located in places different to where the client actually feels the pain.

Myofascial Release

All the structures in the body are surrounded, protected and supported by superficial and middle layers of connective tissue, otherwise known as fascia. Fascia is a continuous elastic sheath that provides structural support for the skeleton and soft tissues (muscles, tendons, organs, etc.)…Scarring or injury to the fascia can cause pain and restrict motion. Myofascial release uses applied stretches to break down fascial adhesions and realign it to its proper orientation.

Hot Stone Massage

Hot stone massage is a variation on classic massage therapy. Heated smooth, flat basalt stones are placed on key points or chakras on the body. The massage therapist also holds the stones and uses them to massage the body.

The heat of the stones warm and relax the muscles, which allows the therapist to apply deeper pressure, if desired. The soothing warmth of the hot stones improves circulation and calms the nervous system. Placement stones are put on energy points/chakras of the body to rebalance the body and mind and clear blocked energy.

The use of hot stones for healing dates back to ancient times, when Native Americans used it for healing.
