The benefits of a pregnancy massage
- Muscle relaxation: The massage focuses on relaxing the muscles in the back, neck, shoulders and legs so that tension is relieved.
- Lower heart rate and blood pressure: A pregnancy massage helps regulate heart rate and blood pressure.
- Improved blood circulation: The massage promotes blood circulation and stimulates the lymphatic system to get rid of toxins in the body.
- More lung capacity: This can help with better delivery of oxygen to your bloodstream and organs.
- Stronger immune system: Because the pregnancy massage reduces stress and stimulates the immune system, it can contribute to a better defense against diseases and infections.
- Less pressure on joints: Pregnancy massage can help relieve pressure on joints that are stressed during pregnancy, such as the hips, lower back and knees.
- Less chance of complications after birth: Relaxation and stress reduction during pregnancy can help prevent complications after birth.
- Less risk of premature birth: By reducing stress and promoting general well-being, pregnancy massage can help reduce the risk of premature birth.
- Less pain during labor: The massage promotes muscle relaxation, which can help relieve pain during labor. This also helps with the subsequent faster recovery.
- Reduction of back pain: Pregnant women often experience back pain as a result of the extra weight and the adjusted and compensatory posture. This massage focuses, among other things, on reducing this specific pain.
- Lower risk of postpartum depression: A pregnancy massage can help reduce stress and anxiety during pregnancy, which in turn can help reduce the risk of postpartum depression after giving birth.
Important information about pregnancy massages
Firstly, the pregnancy massage is only suitable for customers who are at least 12 weeks pregnant. This has to do with the intense hormonal and physical changes that take place in the first trimester. During that early phase of pregnancy, we recommend an arm, face or head massage.
In addition, it is important that the massage therapist is aware of any health problems, such as high blood pressure, diabetes or abdominal pain. This allows her to ensure that the massage is adjusted if necessary, so that it can be performed safely.
During the pregnancy massage, the therapist will carefully avoid certain pressure points to prevent unwanted or unexpected contractions. In this way your peace of mind is guaranteed.
The comfort of both you and your baby is our priority. That is why the massage room is specially equipped with a massage table designed for a pregnancy massage. Extra pillows are also used to ensure that you feel comfortable and relaxed. However, if you do not feel comfortable on this specially designed massage bed, you always have the option of performing the massage on a regular bed, while lying on your side.
Finally, in cases where pregnancy has been delayed and there is a need to stimulate the birthing process, a pregnancy massage can be considered as a means to help accelerate the induction of labor.
Postpartum massage in The Hague
In addition to a pregnancy massage, Vital Stream in The Hague can also offer a solution for a postpartum massage. After giving birth, a postpartum massage can contribute to your body’s recovery and help you cope with the stress and fatigue that often comes with caring for a newborn. A special abdominal massage can also help reduce the size of your uterus immediately after delivery. Please consult your doctor for personal advice before booking this treatment.
