Pregnancy can be equal parts wonderful and miserable, easy and difficult, with the body and emotions feeling as though you’re on a roller-coaster of ups and downs. Nautilus offers maternity massage and antenatal reflexology treatments to help provide positive and supportive benefits during your pregnancy journey.
We strive to create a safe and confidential space where you can share your joys and concerns, highs and lows, without judgement.
Some of the common challenges that come with the many changes a woman’s body goes through during pregnancy include lower back pain, shoulder pain, hip pain, leg cramps, insomnia, low energy levels, heartburn, pelvic pain, itchy skin, and mood swings.
Relaxation plays an important role during pregnancy. A woman needs to be able to rest and recharge, to have time to focus on herself and her baby. The opportunity to relax can help reduce stress levels, which can then help improve sleep, ease aches and pains, and boost energy levels.
Pregnancy massage also boosts lymphatic drainage to help reduce swelling. Massage is useful in alleviating sciatic pain which some women can experience late in their pregnancy.
Other benefits of pregnancy massage include the reduction of lower back and shoulder pain, reducing muscle tension and tightness, relieving headaches, reducing tension or anxiety and encouraging better sleep.
