Pregnancy Massage has been shown to ease pain and reduce anxiety in the first stage of labour. It can help you to cope with contractions by making them feel less intense and more manageable which, in turn, can reduce labour time and pain relief required.

Benefits:

  • Sciatic pain during pregnancy can be caused by a tight buttock muscle – massage can help to relax this muscle and relieve the pain caused by the pinched nerve.
  • Constipation – regular abdominal massage will encourage your bowels to move.
  • Headaches and sinus pain – massage of the face, neck and shoulders can help to alleviate sinus pressure and headaches caused by tension.
  • Swelling/oedema – extra pressure your uterus places on your legs can lead to swelling in your feet and ankles. Massage can improve circulation and lymph flow to the affected areas, helping to reduce swelling.

Lymphatic Drainage Massage

A lymphatic drainage massage is a gentle massage of your tissues designed to help increase the circulation of lymph fluids in your body. Lymph is a protein-rich fluid that moves throughout your body in lymph vessels. It scoops up things like bacteria, viruses, and waste, and carries them to your lymph nodes. Your lymph nodes then filter the fluid to get the impurities out of your body. The massage is usually done with light pressure with gentle, long strokes along the skin to increase the movement of lymph through your system.

Benefits:

  • It Will Improve Your Immune System.
  • It Will Reduce Stress, Anxiety, and Fatigue.
  • It Will Help With Breastfeeding.
  • It Will Give You Unblemished and Glowing Skin.
  • It Will Help With Migraines and Chronic Pain.

Developed to help with muscle systems used for a particular sport, sports massage uses a variety of approaches to help athletes in training — before, during, or after sports events. You might use it to promote flexibility and help prevent injuries. Or, it may help muscle strains, aiding healing after a sports injury.

Benefits:

  • Increased joint range of motion (ROM).
  • Increased flexibility.
  • Increased sense of well-being.
  • Decreased muscle tension.
  • Decreased neurological excitability (nerves more relaxed).
  • Decreased muscle spasms.
  • Better sleep.

Deep Tissue

Deep tissue massage is a massage technique that’s mainly used to treat musculoskeletal issues, such as strains and sports injuries. It involves applying sustained pressure using slow, deep strokes to target the inner layers of your muscles and connective tissues. This helps to break up scar tissue that forms following an injury and reduce tension in muscle and tissue. It may also promote faster healing by increasing blood flow and reducing inflammation.

People have also reported that deep tissue massage helps with:

  • Sports injuries
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Plantar Fasciitis
  • High blood pressure
  • Sciatica Tennis elbow

Indian Head Massage

An Indian Head Massage lasts around 30 minutes. It is performed through clothes and is a gentle and balancing therapy. At times of stress when often we neglect our bodies, an Indian Head Massage can bring awareness back to the body and the breathing. Similar to meditation, daily worries and concerns may be given some perspective. Indian Head Massage incorporates mind, body and spirit. It is believed that three of the key energy centres can be found in the throat, brow and crown. These chakras relate to communication, intuition and spiritual development. Indian Head Massage is a safe, and gentle therapy. It is also very effective at relieving all different types of pains, and re-energising your body. The massage promotes a deep sense of peace, calm and serenity. There is a close relationship between the head, neck, shoulders and arms. By incorporating these areas Indian Head Massage becomes more of a stress management treatment than a beauty therapy. However, this therapy will stimulate the head and improve hair growth and condition.
