Pregnancy Massage Gold Coast
Pregnancy + Massage = Happier Mums-To-Be!
Welcome to the leading, obstetrician-referred prenatal and postnatal massage provider on the Gold Coast!
Why pregnancy massage?
Bringing a child into the world is without a doubt one of life’s great miracles. However for a Mother-to-be, pregnancy can be a time that is overwhelming as emotions of joy and excitement mix with doubt and fear, and dramatic changes take place on both physical and psychological levels.
To participate in this journey is a gift in itself, but it may also come with a few challenges. As the pregnancy develops, ‘Mother Nature’ tries to do everything necessary to prepare both the Mother-to-be and the precious little life she carries for child birth.
Massage and touch can be invaluable during this process as it can make the pregnancy experience a more comfortable, easier and happier journey. This is why so many Mother’s-to-be choose to have prenatal massage.

PRENATAL DISCOMFORTS IN THE BODY:
As the pregnancy develops the physical body makes necessary changes and adjustments which may as a result cause a number of discomforts.
These discomforts may include, but are not isolated to the following:
- Back pain (especially the lower back).
- Neck pain and tense shoulders.
- Hip and pelvic pain.
- Swollen feet, ankles and hands.
- Fatigue / exhaustion.
- Expanding of the abdomen.
The change of centre of gravity can stress the back, neck, shoulders and abdominal muscles. While a change of posture can result as the pelvis starts to pull forward and the ligaments that hold the pelvis in place start to relax, (making the pelvis joint less stable). This forward rotation of the pelvis, along with the weight of the baby puts additional strain on the pelvic girdle and hips, and as the curve of the back increases the knees can rotate out putting more strain on the hips and lower back.
During pregnancy the body also creates up to 50% extra blood, so along with the extra weight on the legs this can cause extra pressure on veins as they become engorged, which in turn can cause cramps and for the legs to become very sore.
If you are experiencing any of these complaints or just feel like you really need some nurturing, a Hawaiian Lomi Lomi style prenatal massage incorporating remedial massage techniques to relieve areas of pain and discomfort may be just what you need.
- Extra comfy and supportive pregnancy massage tables.
- Lay face down in comfort at any point in your pregnancy!
- Experienced and caring pregnancy massage therapists.
- Deeply soothing ‘Hawaiian Style’ pregnancy massage.
- 100% satisfaction guaranteed.
