Pregnancy massage available at the Health Hub

Pregnancy can be a time of excitement and new beginnings, but it can also be a time of stress and discomfort. Your body has a lot to do, and you have a lot to think about, so it’s important to take care of yourself.

One way you can do this – as well as grabbing a few quiet moments of self care – is with pregnancy massage. And the good news is, your pregnancy massage may be covered by your health fund extras cover.

Not only does pregnancy massage feel great, massage during pregnancy can provide a range of health benefits, including:

  • helping to reduce stress and relieve tension
  • relieving joint pain
  • relieving back and leg pain
  • helping you to relax and improve your mood
  • assisting in increasing blood circulation
  • easing insomnia and anxiety
  • providing greater range of movement in any sore areas.

Pregnancy massage at the Health Hub.

Massage therapists that specialise in the unique requirements of pregnancy can be hard to find, but it’s important to know that the person offering your massage knows how to provide relief in a safe and comfortable way.

That’s why we provide specialised pregnancy massage at The Health Hub. Anna Dawson from Rub Downes Massage holds a Certificate of Pregnancy Massage, and she offers pregnancy massage incorporating the benefits of lymphatic treatments to help with blood flow, circulation and remedial techniques to loosen tight tissue and decrease soreness for expectant mums.

What happens at your pregnancy massage appointment?

When you make an appointment with Anna, she will discuss your specific needs with you, and where you’d like her to focus. Then you can either lie on your stomach or – if you’re into your second or third trimester – lie on your side, supported by pillows to ensure you feel comfortable at all times.

Anna can provide a deep tissue massage with light, medium or firm pressure, using techniques such as effleurage (light friction with stroking movements), kneading, trigger pointing, and a range of other specialist techniques that will have you feeling so much better.

Is pregnancy massage safe?

We recommend waiting until after the 12-week mark to come in for your first pregnancy massage, to ensure you and your baby are comfortable and safe. After that, pregnancy massage can be a part of your pregnancy health care regimen right up to 39 weeks.
