PREGNANCY 

LABOUR PREP MASSAGE

 

Pregnancy Massage

 

Pregnancy massage is a safe and effective treatment from conception through to your birth. First-trimester massage can be provided lying flat on the table, however depending on the comfort of the mother and as pregnancy progresses, treatment is provided side-lying with the support of comfortable pillows for the most effective and comfortable treatment.

All pregnancy massages have a strong emphasis on relaxation while addressing muscular tension, supporting the physical changes within the body due to pregnancy, by reducing swelling, calming anxiety, and improving sleep, whilst preparing the mother for labour.

Labour Prep Massage

 

The goal is to help you to enter childbirth with good health, body awareness, and a strong connection to your baby. Supporting you to prepare for childbirth in a relaxed state helps reduce anxiety and increase self-confidence. This moderates the perception of pain during childbirth, and can reduce the length of labour, leading to a reduced need for medical intervention. 

I can teach you exercises to help your body adapt to the physical changes that occur during pregnancy, which are useful as preparation for childbirth. The regular practice of exercises and stretches relieves body discomfort while promoting body awareness.

 FAQ’s

 

 

Preparing for Your Appointment.

To make the most of your upcoming appointment, please remember to bring the following items:

  • Referral letters or imaging reports you may have
  • A list of current medications
  • A bottle of water for after your treatment
  • If you're experiencing reflux or heartburn and taking medication for it, bring these along too as certain positions during pregnancy may trigger these symptoms.

 

What happens in my first appointment?

To get started, we'll begin with a comprehensive review of your medical history. From there, I'll document your current pain complaints and treatment goals. Next, we'll conduct a full-body postural and movement assessment to identify the root cause of your discomfort. This will enable us to collaborate on a plan to address your pain and start the recovery process. Appropriate hands-on treatment and a rehabilitation plan will then follow. While receiving treatment, you may be asked to remove certain items of clothing to allow me to access the affected area. However, please note that you will never be asked to remove clothing or receive treatment on areas that make you feel uncomfortable. To wrap up, we'll go over your treatment plan and schedule your next appointment as necessary.

 

Can I claim appointments through Private Health Insurance?

The answer is yes! As long as your insurance covers Myotherapy and Remedial Massage in your extras plan, you can receive a rebate. Please note that all payments must be made on the day of your appointment, and you will receive an itemised invoice that you can easily submit to your insurance provider for reimbursement.
