massage treatments for new mums
For relaxation and good health
- helping the blood flow freely through the body and providing more oxygen. Studies show up to 15% more oxygen present after a massage.
Soothing the nervous system
- promoting emotional wellbeing. Serotonin and dopamine are released during massage as well as endorphins that act as natural painkillers and help with stress or depression.
Relief from aches and pains
- eases tense muscles in the body through soothing touch, circulation of blood and the release of endorphins.
- relaxing and feeling more comfortable in your body can help with insomnia.
- gentle massage can help alleviate oedema, swollen feet and ankles.
Help with breastfeeding
Another hormone released in massage is oxytocin, the same one that helps you birth and breastfeed. Massage can also target sore back and shoulders from those midnight feeds.
Aid postnatal recovery
Offering nurturing space to recuperate emotionally, as well as helping your body heal, whatever your birth experience.
Time for you
Taking time to care for yourself is an essential part of parenting. Give yourself the chance to rest and recuperate following birth.
