Elite Performance Therapy are here for you and your baby; from bump to birth and beyond! Isy and Sarah can help new and expectant mothers to prevent and manage prenatal and post-partum hip, back and pelvis pain using a variety of massage therapy and chiropractic treatment options.
Massage is particularly useful to mothers because as their pregnancy evolves, postural changes and added weight can cause discomfort and pain – which in turn can lead to lack of rest and chronic fatigue.
After a baby’s arrival massage can assist in expediting recovery and provide relief from the challenges of early motherhood.
Postnatal massages are very effective in turning your body back to its pre-pregnancy condition. It can help :
Increases blood circulation
Alleviate musculoskeletal aches and pains
Post pregnancy massage also helps provides emotional and mental health support and reorients the mother to get back to her original form pre-pregnancy.
There are some myths surrounding massage therapies. Many women believe that if you are pregnant, it is unsafe to have treatments. You can have any treatment providing your pregnancy is safe and once we have gone through a consultation with you. Many women enjoy massage and really benefit from the time they are taking to relax. They enjoy shorter labours and quicker recovery times. After their baby has been born many mums enjoy time to recover, by experiencing the bliss of a massage.
Post pregnancy massage is also aimed at helping the new mum overcome and recover from post-partum depression. With the arrival of a new baby, it is even more important to give yourself quality “me-time.” It’s all too easy to focus all your energy and time on your baby and to forget your own needs.
