Ayurvedic Pregnancy Massage
Pregnancy is a time in which mothers need plenty of support and nourishment. Mothers-to-be give so much of their vital energy to their growing babies and massage is an amazing and effective way to help restore and replenish this essential energy. In Ayurveda, it is said that there is a strong link between a mother’s well-being and the health of her baby from the time of implantation and throughout the entire pregnancy.
An Ayurvedic Pregnancy Massage is aimed to support and nourish mothers whilst also helping to prepare for labour emotionally and physically. This type of massage consists of gentle and repetitive strokes on the whole body helping to relax the nervous system and the mind. The use of warm medicated oils aids in increasing the effectiveness of the massage by nourishing the skin, helping to prevent stretch marks as well as keeping the joints and muscles supple.
A happy mother = a happy baby! Having a regular massage supports you throughout your pregnancy, leaving you feeling relaxed, rejuvenated and nourished.
WHAT TO EXPECT:
The treatment will facilitate a process of healing and relaxation by creating an ambient environment that is perfect for cleansing and rejuvenation. The treatment begins with a brief consultation for you to understand and therefore participate in the healing process and a sound shower using calming instruments marks the finale that resonates peace and harmony.
The pinnacle of the experience is of course the massage. Warm Ayurvedic medicated oils are used which have been carefully selected to support the healing process during pregnancy. You will find the massage incorporates slow and grounding strokes, helping to balance and relax the mind, body and soul!
Many different massage positions will be used to help you feel as comfortable as possible, this will including sitting up and leaning forward, side lying or lying on your back with a wedge so you have minimal pressure to your back. We will discuss all this so that the massage is designed especially for your needs on the day.
