At Melbourne Osteopathy Sports Injury Centre our Remedial Massage Therapists have extensive knowledge about pregnancy and the massage requirements for each stage of your pregnancy.
Massage can help greatly with all the tension and pain experienced during pregnancy caused by the extra weight and many body changes that take place.
Some of the many physical benefits of massage while pregnant include:
- reduction in peripheral swelling
- soothing of the nervous system
- improved sleep
- reduction in muscle cramps
- decrease in neck, back and pelvic pain
- reduction in carpal tunnel issues
- helping to return to optimal fitness post natal
Care must be taken through the first trimester but pregnancy massage is beneficial through the whole pregnancy unless your medical practitioner has recommended otherwise.
At Melbourne Osteopathy Sports Injury Centre we have Osteopaths and Pilates instructors who are highly experienced with pregnancy issues. With our case management approach to all our patients, if you have any queries, our other practitioners will be available to answer your questions during or shortly after your massage.
