Bodywork for Women & Mothers of Ballarat

 

Our myotherapy and remedial massage treatments are personalised to fulfil your individual requirements, offering an exceptional hands-on healthcare experience. Choose from the following options to support you through each stage of your fertility journey.

Pregnancy 

All pregnancy treatments have a strong emphasis on relaxation while addressing muscular tension, supporting the physical changes within the body. Pregnancy massage is a safe and effective treatment for mothers from conception through to birth. During the first trimester, massages can be done while lying flat on the table. Beyond the first trimester, treatment is most effective and comfortable in a supported side-lying position.

Labour & Birth Preparation 

 

Induction massage is a gentle and non-invasive way to prepare your mind and body for labour and birth. Labour is driven by a complex cocktail of hormones. A massage in the later stages of your pregnancy can enhance this process and pave the way for a smooth transition into labour. 

Should you be overdue or feeling uneasy about the potential of a medical induction, a deeply relaxing massage can help you to overcome tension and anxiety. This creates a positive mindset and lowers stress hormones.

At Untangled Living we bring together a range of techniques to encourage your body and baby to move into the next stage of labour. We work in collaboration with the osteotherapist to achieve structural balance, taking your body’s function to the next level in preparation for birth.

Induction massage can be an essential part of your birth preparation. It addresses issues that can prevent your baby from getting into the optimal position for birth. As your body releases muscle tension, it creates space for your baby to move down into your pelvis, rotate or move from breech, posterior, or other less optimal positions for birth.
