Postnatal massage is a full-body massage specifically designed for new mothers from 6 weeks after giving birth. The aim of this bodywork is to help the mother recover after delivery and deal with changes in the body. Myofascial release is a safe and effective massage technique that involves applying gentle sustained pressure to trigger points alleviating pain and restoring functional movement within the joints and soft tissue. This therapy can be effective for a wide range of ailments including Symphysis Pubis Dysfunction, lower back pain, shoulder pain, neck pain, etc. Right from the first few weeks, every pregnant woman experiences major changes in their body and emotions. Things are not made easier during the delivery and within the next weeks that follow, the new mother has to go through a huge healing process to deal with internal scars in the uterus and other parts of the body. This process is gradual and will cause the mother to experience some cramps which could range from mild to severe. The new mother also experiences stress, body pains, aches and anxiety and these are common as a result of the added responsibilities of taking care of a newborn and adjusting to her new life as a mum. Postnatal massage will help reduce stress, make you relaxed while at the same time improving your breastfeeding experience among other things. Benefits of Postnatal Massage include: • Helps the new mother to relax • Healing of internal wounds • Restful sleep • Improves breastfeeding • Reduction of aches or pains *Receive an aperitif of the day exclusively with a post natal treatment.
