Our Pregnancy massage therapy and pre-natal osteopathy at Fulham Osteopathic Care, London is specifically tailored for the expectant mother’s needs.
How is pregnancy massage therapy and pre-natal Osteopathy different from regular treatment?
The mother’s body must be properly positioned and supported during the massage, using pillows and padding. Proper positioning ensures safety and comfort for the mother and baby.
Our specialised treatment couch allows mother-to-be to relax comfortably in the face down position whilst receiving a pregnancy massage or osteopathy treatment. This unique, table with padded breast recesses and an abdominal sling ensures a comfortable and safe position at all stages of pregnancy.
What are the benefits of Osteopathy and pregnancy massage therapy?
Pregnancy massage therapy has been found to reduce stress, decrease swelling in the arms and legs, and relieve aches and pains in muscles and joints.
Osteopathy is a popular complementary therapy during pregnancy for back pain, when options for pain relief, such as medication, are often limited.
Not only can Osteopathy and massage therapy be physically beneficial, but the human touch can be comforting and provide emotional support during pregnancy.
Massage therapy has also shown to reduce depression and anxiety.
