It’s an exciting time to have a new baby in the house. But it’s also exhausting. Pain can add to that exhaustion, and really drain your energy levels. But it needn’t have to. Luckily postnatal massage can help!
Massage can quickly relieve the neck pain that comes from falling asleep in your feeding chair, lower back pain from lifting bub from capsule to pram to change table and back again. Postnatal Massage can also relieve shoulder pain and tight muscles from burping bub over the shoulder and from that non-stop feeding in the early days. It can relieve the muscular stress and give you more freedom to cope with the demands of a newborn.
If you’ve already made up your mind and would like to make an appointment, simply contact Catherine to lock in your preferred time.
Benefits of Postnatal Massage
- Ease stiff Neck and Shoulders – trigger point therapy can provide instant pain reduction for the stiff neck and collar muscles that is a normal part of feeding and settling a new baby.
- Improved Quality of Sleep – massage increases the production of serotonin and melatonin which regulates our sleep rhythms, thus producing positive effects on sleep quality.
- Relieve Tension Headaches – massage can release the tension in muscles which has contributed tension headaches. Catherine’s unique mix of Myofascial Release and Trigger Point techniques helps to gently relieve the built up tension.
- Reduced Stress & Anxiety – between doctor’s appointments, eating plans, settling baby and feeding non-stop, the level of stress and anxiety that a new baby can bring to a home should not be underestimated. Massage reduces the stress hormone cortisol, and at the same time it increases the feel good hormones that improve mood, immunity, vitality and also decrease pain levels.
