Our Edinburgh Postnatal Massage is a fantastic way to help restore your body after pregnancy and birth, as well as helping to relieve any aches, pains and tiredness you may have while caring for your new baby. Treatment is tailored to your individual needs and includes a combination of relaxation, deep tissue and remedial massage techniques, hot stones (if requested), gentle exercises and stretching.
It is important to take care of yourself as well as your baby in the months following childbirth.
It is safe to receive Postnatal Massage from an experienced therapist anytime following the birth of your baby. The time it takes for you to return to your pre-pregnancy balance will depend on many factors such as your emotional and physical health, any challenges you may have experienced during pregnancy, the type of birth experience you had, how you are bonding with your baby, how you are coping with the newborn parenting and issues such as sleep, feeding, colic and crying.
Regular Postnatal Massage can help:
* give nurturing and emotional support
* alleviate the muscle strain of pregnancy and childbirth
* promote pelvic floor healing and rebalance the spine and pelvis
* restore and normalise abdominal structures
* facilitate healing after a Caesarian section
* restore normal walking patterns
* prevent and relieve back and neck pain caused by newborn care
* aid breastfeeding
Peace of Mind
Can I bring my baby?
You are welcome to bring your baby to the session so that he/she can lie next to you while you are being massaged. Alternatively, you are welcome to bring a friend or partner to help care for your baby while you enjoy your massage. Please let us know if you do plan on bringing your baby so that we can make sure you are both very comfortable. Thank you.
