Bringing new life into the world is a wonderful thing but it also puts a lot of strain on the body. Postnatal massage sessions are tailored to help with postpartum issues which every mother deals with.
The body goes through a rapid transition after giving birth with changes in your hormones, body shape and center of gravity. Massage eases these stresses by relaxing the muscles that have been strained during the prenatal and natal process. Feeling relaxed allows for a more balanced hormone production, realigns the muscles and re-focuses your center of gravity. The therapy is also designed to increase circulation which contributes to the reduction of postpartum swelling and incorporates stretches to allow for a more lasting effect.
It is quite common for new mothers to not take care of themselves as well as they should. Of course, it is not surprising that they are completely focused on their new little bundle of joy, but mama needs care too! There will be lots of bending over and lifting with your newborn which can put a strain on the back; often ignored because you have more pressing concerns.
