Postnatal

The post-natal period can be a challenging time for a new mother as she adjusts physically and emotionally.  Also, if you are a mother who has undergone an unexpected caesarean birth, your adjustments may be even more challenging.

With the many benefits that massage offers, the new mother’s health can be restored in a nurturing way along with some luxurious essential oils.

SOME BENEFITS OF POST-NATAL MASSAGE 

  • Helps restore your body to its pre-pregnancy condition;
  • Facilitates the healing of a caesarean section birth;
  • Improves circulation through the body;
  • Encourages the flow of lymph and speeds the elimination of toxins from your body without any problems to your baby during breast-feeding;
  • Calms your nervous system, producing much needed relaxation and the release of endorphins (your feel good, healing hormones);
  • Defines the shapes and contours of your body to bring a renewed sense of body image and self-esteem;
  • Relieves emotional and physical stress that result from being sleep deprived;
  • Eases muscle aches and pains that result from nursing and carrying your newborn.

If you are recovering from a caesarean section you will need to wait until you have had your 6-week clearance from your Obstetrician to book your massage.
