We have specifically designed tables that allow you to lie on your stomach or on your side at any stage of your pregnancy (they have a cute little cut out where the baby goes when you lye face down).

We can safely target your massage to key areas of aches and pain that your have been experiencing -feet, back, neck/shoulders.

Lower back pain often begins to occur in the first trimester.  As hormones are released, they begin the slow relaxation of the ligaments that hold the pelvis taut.  As a result, you’ll often experience pain in the lower back.  Massage here greatly assist, as it is very nurturing and warming, and also soothes this area.

Massaging the legs and feet soothes the muscles that support the extra weight.

We can also help with pre-labour massage to help your tired and sore body to prepare for the labour!

We just avoid massage in the first trimester –

Massage is usually contraindicated in the first trimester due to the instability of the new foestus.  Certain pressure points must be avoided, as repetitive stimulation of them is said to have an adverse effect.  These points are located on and around the foot, the sacrum, the point between the thumb and index finger and the point between the shoulder and neck.

Benefits of Essential oils during Pregnancy

Using oils has been known to help prevent stretch marks.  Try to massage your body daily with avocado, apricot, kernel or wheatgerm oils.  From the seventh month, if you wish, add a few drops of mandarin or lavender essential oils.

Spearmint essential oil may help with morning sickness.  Add a few drops to a hankerchief or tissue and sniff it when you feel nauseous.

If your experiencing fluid retention, check with your doctor first.  If it’s not serious, add afew drops of grapefruit, geranium and/or sweet orange essential oils to 3 tablespoons of carrier oil and use it with lymphatic massage on the feet, legs or arms.

Morning Sickness:

2 Drops lavender essential oil

2 drops chamomile essential oil

1 drop of peppermint oil.

Perineal healing

Help speed healing of the perineum if it has been torn during childbirth

5 drops lavender essential oil

5 drops tea tree essential oil

a quarter of a cup of sea salt.

Add the ingredients to a shallow bath filled with lukewarm water and use daily.

Baby blues

Post-natal depression should always be monitored by a doctor, but inhaling esstial oils that have balancing and uplifting effects may help to restore balance and counter the feeling of negativity in the first few weeks

3 drops of jasmine essential oil

3 drops of clary sage essential oil

3 drops of ylang ylang essential oil

1 drop of mandaring essential oil

combine the oils and add to a bath.

In the early stages of pregnancy, symptoms such as morning sickness, tiredness, headaches and mood swings are common.  In later pregnancy, backache, fluid retention, varicose veins, cramps and indigestion are some of the problems that may be experienced.  Massage can help to alleviate all of these problems.  In my opinion massage is essential during pregnancy and in many years of practice I have always massaged and managed to prevent the dreaded stretch marks!

Massage is a safe and natural way to promote a healthy pregnancy and to alleviate any minor discomforts without the use of drugs, which are often contraindicated at the time due to the risk of side effects.

Lower back and leg pain during pregnancy (sciatica)….

“I’ve been having pain on the right side of may back, running right down my hi[ and leg.  What’s happening?’

 

This sounds like another of the occupational heaxards of expectant motherhood.  The pressue of the enlarging uterus, which has been responsible for so many other discomforts, can also affect the sciatic nerve – causing lower back, buttock, and leg pain.  Acupuncture, Massage,Rest, and a heating pad applied locally will help.  The pain may pass as your baby’s position changes, or it may linger until you’ve delivered.  You may need one or more remedial massages by Cairns Acupuncture and Massage – Tanya Galvin.  Or you may need to have one or two acupuncture treatments to fix this pain.  Please call Tanya on
