During pregnancy and after childbirth, the female body goes through many trials that are equally stressful for the physique and psyche, as well as the spirit. The mother's body quickly adapts to the growing child in her and as a result it undergoes many physiological changes. As a result of the lack of recovery or improper action, lifelong trauma is likely to occur for both the mother and the child. Massage for pregnant women is not just a "pleasure", it is a health necessity and is extremely important.
Frequently asked questions and concerns:
- Advice from relatives: "Never massage"Don't let anyone touch you, because it's harmful and dangerous." This is a myth or rather folk psychology and is devoid of knowledge and logic. On the contrary - the best method to restore the body from fatigue and heaviness, muscle pain and especially the pelvis, pain in the spine and calming the nervous system, harmonizing all other systems in the body of both the expectant mother and the child dependent on her health is massage. Our observations on pregnant women who have taken care of themselves through massages are more than obvious. Those who do it regularly procedures, when they were difficult to move and with weakened muscles, they were calmer, more confident, apparently without swelling in the legs, without pelvic pain and tension in the back, their sleep was calm and the birth was naturally much easier and painless. The pain they were absent in the feet as well as on the whole legs due to the weight of the fetus and the curvature of the lines in the pelvis and hip joints and especially in the areas of the gluteal muscles.
Recovery for the mother after birth and especially in the area of the spine and the lumbar region (waist) and pelvis are extremely important for her health. During birth the ligaments of the pelvic bones are softened and the pelvis is relaxed so that the "birth canal" can reach a size of 17-19 cm, as a result of which the pelvis is restored by the 40th day after birth. Fact: 95% of women suffer from low back pain, protrusions, disc herniations, etc. , are due to improper recovery during pregnancy and especially the postpartum period.
- When is the most correct and appropriate and inappropriate time for a massage? - It is recommended not to do until the third month massages due to increased blood circulation in the small pelvis. If the pregnant woman has problems with fetal retention, massage is also not recommended. After the third month, in a normal pregnancy, when the fetus is already well attached to the uterus, massages are recommended and they are very important for health of the mother and child.
- Is massage dangerous for pregnant women for the fetus and the pregnant woman? - The massage for pregnant women is not only not dangerous, but is the most useful therapy for pregnant women and maintaining its well-being physically and mental state. In the case of our qualified therapist fits individually and carefully considering the patient's condition.
Fact: The therapist who massages a pregnant woman does not massages feet, palms or generally, the areas with energy points (according to Eastern medicine), because the stimulation of any of them can cause discomfort to mother and child. The position of the body during the massage is fully consistent with the condition of the pregnant woman. It is either in a sitting position or lying on its side and sealed with pillows between the legs or under the arms for more comfort. Massage movements are smooth and with light - regular pressure.
