WHAT IS PREGNANCY MASSAGE? 

Pregnancy is a beautiful and transformative journey, but it can also bring physical discomfort and stress. That's where our pregnancy massage sessions come in. Specifically designed to support expectant mothers throughout their prenatal journey, they provide much-needed relief from the various discomforts that can arise during pregnancy.

At LDN, we understand the unique needs of pregnant women and offer specialised treatment techniques tailored to address those needs. Our highly skilled and trained therapists are experienced in working with expectant mothers, ensuring a safe and nurturing environment for both mom and baby.

WHAT CAN A MASSAGE SESSION HELP ME WITH?

  • Reduced back pain

  • Reduced sciatica pain

  • Reduced joint pain

  • Improved circulation

  • Reduced edema

  • Reduced muscle tension and headaches

  • Reduced stress and anxiety

  • Improved oxygenation of soft tissues and muscles

  • Better sleep

One of the main benefits of pregnancy massage is its ability to alleviate common pregnancy-related discomforts such as back pain, swollen feet, and muscle tension. The gentle and soothing strokes used during the massage help to relax muscles, relieve tension, and reduce swelling, promoting a sense of overall well-being.

Beyond physical benefits, pregnancy massage can also have a positive impact on mental and emotional well-being. Pregnancy can bring about hormonal changes and heightened emotions, and regular massage sessions can help to reduce stress, anxiety, and promote relaxation. The release of endorphins during the massage can also improve mood and provide a sense of tranquility.

We don't see patients within their first trimester of pregnancy.  As with any therapeutic approach to pregnancy wellness, it's always best to discuss massage with your prenatal care provider.
