Pregnancy Massage Benefits Explained

Pregnancy massage is an ideal way to nurture and take care of yourself during this time of rapid change..

Pregnancy is a fascinating transformation that your body undertakes. At Terrigal Bodyworks, we can help you through this journey, making you feel much more comfortable. A prenatal massage can ease aches and pains caused by additional pressure placed on the body and facilitate your pelvic repositioning.

During your massage we use nourishing Almond and Macadamia oils to keep your skin supple and hydrated. We also have a specialised pregnancy table cushion for your comfort, allowing you to fully relax laying facedown for your treatment.

Massage is also beneficial once you have given birth. When you welcome your little bundle of joy into the world, it is easy to forget your own needs. By easing muscle tension, your structure can gently realign and can keep you comfortable during the next phase of breast feeding. It is such an important time to keep yourself healthy and Terrigal Bodyworks can provide that little bit of extra support.
