Is it suitable for every pregnant woman?
Pregnancy is a state of emergency for the body that is accompanied by major changes and exertion. A pregnancy massage is a form of massage that is specially designed to meet the needs of pregnant women. In addition to the mental and physical relaxation it provides, it can also significantly alleviate most pregnancy complaints.
When is a massage not recommended?
- In the first 12 weeks of pregnancy
- Premature labor
- Placental diseases
- growth ratesörungen
- Autoimmune diseases
- Diseases with fever or a cold
In general the pregnant woman should feel well and healthy before the massage. Otherwise a massage means additional stress for the body. In this case the illness or discomfort should only be cured at rest. In the first 12 weeks of pregnancy a massage is not recommended. In this first phase of pregnancy a massage could lead to a miscarriage. In any case, it is not advisable to do any massage during pregnancy. For example, in premature labor, placental diseases, growth disorders, varicose veins, diabetes and autoimmune diseases. It is always best to seek the advice of your gynaecologist or midwife prior to pregnancy massage.
Affects of pregnancy massage
- relieving and releasing tension
- Relief of stressed joints
- reduction of headaches and sleep disturbances
- Reduction of stress and tension
- improvement of skin elasticityät
- support of the body posture
- improvement of the blood circulation
- Reduction of water retention
A pregnancy is both mentally and physically strenuous and unusual for the body and mind. A massage during pregnancy can help to make this exciting journey a little easier and more relaxed. During pregnancy the pelvis opens and changes position. This leads to new structures in the interaction of muscles and statics. The new interaction of various muscle groups can lead to blockages or congestions, which can be dissolved by the massage. For example, tensions in the shoulder, neck and neck areas are alleviated or even completely relieved. Apart from that, the joints, which are stressed by the additional weight, are relieved. Massage with oil improves the skin's elasticity and the targeted massage of the legs reduces any water retention. The generally improved blood circulation after the massage also helps against headaches and sleep disturbances.
How does the treatment work?
The pregnancy massage is of course not performed lying on your stomach. The position on the stomach is also not recommended as there is a risk of Vena-Cava syndrome. This means that the baby and its mother lie on the lower vena cava. This can lead to extreme circulatory problems. Therefore, the massage is performed lying on the side or sitting comfortably.
