Pregnancy Massage

Congratulations on this beautiful journey of motherhood, and welcome to the world of Pregnancy Massage.

Pregnancy massage

This nurturing therapy offers a safe and gentle way to support your wellbeing during this special time. Pregnancy Massage will relieve many of the natural discomforts experienced during pregnancy, including backache, leg cramps and swollen ankles. The perfect way for mum-to-be to relax and nurture her ever-changing body.

Pregnancy Massage is not performed during the first 12 weeks of pregnancy without a written doctor’s consent.

What is involved in Pregnancy Massage?

Pregnancy can put a lot of stress on your back, shoulders, neck and abdominal muscles. Massage therapists specifically designed Pregnancy Massage to alleviate everyday aches and pains experienced by women during pregnancy.

Before the massage begins, your therapist will discuss your health and lifestyle. They will ask you to lie on a massage table with specially designed pregnancy support pillows and cover you with towels to protect your privacy and keep you warm.

What are the benefits of Pregnancy Massage?

Studies indicate that massage therapy during pregnancy can help in the following ways:

  • Induce relaxation and reduce stress
  • Relief from muscle cramps, spasms and myofascial pain, especially in the lower back, neck, hips and legs
  • Reduce stress on weight-bearing joints
  • Improves outcome of labour and easing of labour pain
  • Enhances the pliability of skin and underlying tissues
  • Regulates hormones, resulting in improved mood
  • Reduction in edema or swelling
  • Better sleep

Always talk to your doctor before you have a pregnancy massage, especially if:

  • you are in the first trimester
  • you have nausea, vomiting or morning sickness
  • you are at high risk of miscarriage
  • you have a high-risk pregnancy (such as due to preeclampsia or high blood pressure)
  • you have a blood clot, for example, deep vein thrombosis
  • you have abdominal pain or bleeding

    Absolutely, of course, you can! But not during your first trimester (the first 12 weeks). Pregnancy Massage at Body For Life will only be performed by a fully qualified Pregnancy Specialist, so you can rest assured you and your baby will be in the best possible hands. We understand that pregnant bodies come in all shapes and sizes. As your pregnancy progresses, we will use pillows that allow you to lie face down or on your side comfortably and always support you to feel entirely comfortable during your massage. Each pregnancy massage is tailored towards your needs and how you feel on the day.

    Always advise when booking if you are pregnant so as to be booked with a Therapist specialising in Pregnancy Massage.

    We offer the options of Eftpos, Visa, Mastercard and Cash. We also offer Afterpay on-site.

    To ensure our therapists can provide a full body massage, you will be asked to undress to your underwear. Your massage therapist will give you privacy to undress to your underwear, and you will be covered with a towel at all times except the area being worked on. At all times, you must wear underwear. Any request to massage nude will not be honoured. Failing to comply with our rules will cause the treatment to cease immediately.

    Please understand that we do reserve the right to refuse treatment. Body for Life only performs professional, therapeutic massage treatment.

    Your massage will take place in a private, comfortable, quiet room. Easy listening music will be playing to help you relax, or you may choose to play your music; let the therapist know, and they will turn off the room speaker for you. Lighting can also be dimmed, so please ask if you prefer this.

    Upon arrival, you will be led to our lounge area, where you will be offered herbal tea or water. You will be asked to fill in our health history client intake form, which you will hand to the therapist when they call you through to your treatment room.

    Your therapist will begin by asking you general questions to establish what areas you would like to work on, if any conditions need to be addressed, and to determine what type of massage or combination of modalities is appropriate for you. Your massage therapist may perform specific assessments and testing to evaluate your condition and range of motion and see if you have any particular complaints or areas of concern.

    No, you don’t need to be a member but membership provides you with a saving of $20 off every 60 minute massage along with a range of other specials and discounts.  Simply ask us to find out more…
