PREGNANCY MASSAGE & EMMETT TECHNIQUE FOR PRENATAL CARE

 

“To be a mother is to take on one of the most emotionally and intellectually demanding, exasperating, strenuous, anxiety-arousing, and deeply satisfying tasks that any human being can undertake”. Sheila Kitzinger.

You and your baby will love this nurturing pregnancy massage and gentle Emmett Therapy Technique. It is a perfect way to alleviate some of the discomforts of pregnancy  such as lower back pain, sciatica, swollen ankles and legs, carpel tunnel pain, or to assist you to just relax, unwind and increase your energy levels making it easier to cope with the changes you are experiencing during your pregnancy.

 

WHAT IT IS AND HOW YOU CAN BENEFIT

Prenatal massage shares many of the goals of regular massage; improved circulation and mobility, ease sore spots, relax tense muscles and reduce stress and relief from heartburn. Lower back, abdomen and shoulder strain and pain can be greatly reduced through massage and Emmett Therapy. Pregnancy massage is a particularly effective form of healthcare during pregnancy, offering a wide range of benefits to both you and your baby.

Pregnancy can be an emotional roller coaster, emotions can fluctuate. Massage, Emmett Therapy and knowledgeable touch can help alleviate some of these.

 

HOW IT WORKS

During pregnancy, pregnancy specific massage can safely, comfortably, and effectively relieve stress, whether it is physical or emotional. Using Emmett Therapy and  pregnancy massage can reduce the effect of many of the most common problems a pregnant woman might experience. Pregnancy massage promotes much needed rest and relaxation, and in utero your baby can respond in the same way.

Individualised hands-on time with an experienced, caring practitioner supports reduced muscle tension and relaxation for pregnant women.

 

HOW I WORK WITH CLIENTS

It is always a privilege to work with a mum to be, and it is wonderful to see her become relaxed and to notice the baby responding and settling down as well

I tailor the sessions specifically to the needs of you and your changing body.

I use my signature soft flowing style of massage that is safe and effective and encourages total relaxation of the body and the mind. I also use the Emmett technique to release any muscle tension in a gentle non invasive method.The pregnancy massage and Emmett thechnique will help you to unwind, feel serene, healthy and comforted during a period of what can sometimes be an added physical and emotional stress.

For the safety and health of your baby I use organic jojoba oil, which is also a great moisturiser for your skin as well.

OTHER WAYS I CAN ASSIST YOU AFTER THE BIRTH

POST NATAL MASSAGE

Equally as important is massage and Emmett therapy after the birth. They not only help restore the physical body to the new mum, but also helps to revive her emotional state as well. When the mum feels good about herself, it is easier to meet the needs of her newborn.

 

BABIES HAVING TROUBLE LATCHING ON DURING FEEDING

I can assist with babies who are having trouble turning their head to the breast for feeding, which in turn can create nipple soreness for mum and wind or colic for baby. You may notice your baby sleeping with a preference for one side which may cause a flat spot on their head as well. Using a safe Emmett move can greatly assist your baby to be able to turn their head both ways.

 

INCONTINENCE

Unfortunately some women can end up with bladder incontinence after the birth. This can be embarrassing, inconvenient and have a huge effect on a person's self-esteem and lifestyle. Don't suffer with this. I have had great success with clients by using a technique I learnt during my training to solve this particular embarrassing problem.

 

INFANT MASSAGE

 

This special massage helps both child and parent form a unique bond of love, trust and nurturing. It is an excellent way for parents to interact with their baby.

WHAT IT IS AND HOW YOU CAN BENEFIT

Infant massage helps the child's circulation, stimulates internal organs and can help relieve colic and intestinal gas. Infant massage teaches them coordination and body awareness, can help with flexibility and can help the baby to relax and promote more restful sleep. Above all it is and excellent way for you to connect and bond with your baby.

Fathers can also learn infant massage and enjoy the same emotional fulfilment and connection.

The obvious benefit is the pleasure that it gives both of you. Watching your child respond can also have a calming effect on you as you do the massage.

 

HOW IT WORKS

Infant massage is a kind of sensory stimulation, helping promote and maintain healthy body function and offers a unique way to regulate involuntary activities such as circulation and digestion. As well as the context of the importance of being lovingly touched that soothes and emotionally reassures infants.

 

HOW I WORK WITH INFANT MASSAGE

Infant massage is something that I teach and instruct parent on how to do. This not only allows the parents to interact and connect with their baby, but most importantly, teaches the baby that they are in charge of their body. I teach parents how to massage, the signs and cues to watch for and respect, when the baby does not want massage. I teach parent the contraindications of infant massage and discuss the appropriate safe types of massage oil to use.
