Mostly pregnancy massage makes you feel fantastic.

There are a couple of packages you can choose from. All of these are available for after your first trimester.

As your body undergoes major changes when you become pregnant, massage is not recommended during the first three months to ensure the health of you and your baby.

However it is highly recommended in the second and third trimesters and right up until (and during) the birth.

Pregnancy can be one of the most exciting and fulfilling times of a woman’s life. The joy of bringing another human being into the world creates a tremendous feeling of contentment and anticipation, but it is also a time of great physical and emotional upheaval.

Together with the ever-important trio of exercise, good diet and rest, essential oils can play an important role in helping a woman cope with the stresses of nine month of pregnancy, the pain of labor and post-natal recovery.

Surging hormone levels and changes in your swelling body can bring a host of discomforts, many of which can be alleviated by aromatherapy treatments and other simple steps.

The lower back region takes a lot of strain during the pregnancy, and will benefit from a firm massage with lavender and sandalwood based oils. Almost all women feel uncomfortable in the weeks before the birth, and may need some extra support at this time.

Massage has a feel-good factor, which may be particularly welcome in the late pregnancy when the women are likely to feel heavy and tired. Massage is also a good way of oiling the skin, which can get very dry in pregnancy.

Working on the feet, and lower legs will also help shift the fluid that tends to collect in these areas during pregnancy. In addition, putting your feet up above heart level regularly will encourage fluid to drain out of the legs, which may prevent varicose veins and reduce feelings of heaviness and aching in the area.

Pregnancy massage is not encouraged within the first trimester and you will find it hard to find a therapist who will massage a pregnant women during this time. However, after the first trimester it is generally safe to receive massage up till and even during your birth.

Pregnancy Massage and Essential Oils

Essential oils, when used safely, can help with some of the minor troubles that come with being pregnant.

These can include morning sickness, back ache, oedema (swollen legs and ankles), varicose veins and exhaustion.

Essential oils can also be handy during labour to ease pain and facilitate delivery.

Morning sickness

Nausea, which normally occurs in the first three months but which can continue for the whole pregnancy, is often one of the first signs a woman is pregnant. Inhaling essential oils in a steam bath can help or leave to warm in an oil burner. We like basil, ginger and lemon as a combination.

Constipation

Also another early sign of pregnancy. Prepare essential oils in a base carrier with no more than three drops in two tablespoons of carrier oil, and then massage in a clockwise direction on your belly. You can also use the oils in the bath and a healthy diet and drinking lots of water will also help. Oils to use? Rosemary, ginger and orange.

Stretch marks

By the beginning of the second trimester, your clothes will be feeling tighter as your abdomen swells. Halfway through you will feel the first movements. Start using essential oils at this time to prevent stretch marks. Geranium is fantastic for the skin, as is frankincense and lavender. Use in a carrier oil that is enriched with some avocado oil or olive oil and massage daily.

Backache

Very common during pregnancy, as your baby grows so does the pressure on your back. Sitting and standing correctly can help but will usually occur at some stage. Massage with essential oils goes a long to help. Prepare a carrier oil with basil, marjoram and lavender

Varicose Veins/Swollen legs

Resting with your feet raised helps here and drinking lots of water. You can also use a carrier oil with fennel, juniper and lemon. Don’t massage the legs with this, just gently rub on and leave with your legs raised.

Pregnancy Massage

mothers-day-pamper0gift-certificateFor self massaging:

After the first three months, gently massaging the abdomen in the morning and evening with a suitable oil blend can help to prevent stretch marks, also the warmth of your touch is very relaxing to both mum and baby.

For partners to do:

Back relief: Pregnancy can put a great deal of strain the curvature of the lower spine and the surrounding muscles, sometimes leading to chronic back pain. While your partner lies sideways, focus your strokes on the lower back and buttock, enabling the area to release its tension.

Circulation: Smooth, flowing, and soft effleurage movements, stroking up over the feet, ankles and legs, will help boost circulation and to reduce the likelihood of puffy ankles and varicose veins.
