Massage for Pregnancy

Massage for pregnancy in North London: Southgate, Finchley, Barnet, Whetstone, Muswell Hill and Enfield

Being pregnant can be wonderful, but it can also contribute to aches and pains, especially in your back, shoulders, hips and legs (imagine carrying a 7lb weight around all day, every day!).  Massage can help to alleviate the muscle tension, cramps, sciatic pain and oedema which are often experienced during pregnancy.

Both you and your baby can benefit from the endorphins released during massage, which promote relaxation and a feeling of wellbeing; this can help to improve sleep and reduce anxiety.

Extra pillows are used during your treatment to ensure maximum comfort.  Please advise beforehand if there are any oils which you would prefer not to be used, in case you have become sensitive to certain smells during your pregnancy.

At AK Sports Massage, pregnancy massage is provided during the 2nd and 3rd trimesters.  Although there is no evidence to suggest that massage has anything other than a beneficial effect at any time, due to the increased risk of miscarriage during the 1st trimester, it is generally not recommended during that period.

Whatever your reason for needing a treatment, at AK Sports Massage you’re in good hands.
