Therapies during pregnancyHelenO2015-08-07T07:44:55+00:00
Therapies during pregnancyAn unborn child shares its emotional state with its mum. There is no better time than during pregnancy for you to experience the benefits of Reiki or massage for both you and your baby.
Reiki can be given in pregnancy, during labour and following delivery. You don’t have to be a spiritual person or have spiritual interests, having Reiki offers you and your baby the opportunity to relax and adjust to the pregnancy journey whilst preparing for the birth itself.
A recent study at The Hartford Hospital Connecticut found that Reiki regularly during pregnancy reduced stress and anxiety by 94%, reduced pain during pregnancy by 78%, eased nausea and vomiting by 80%, and increased quality of sleep by 86%.
During labour Reiki can be used to provide direct physical treatments or distance healing. This helps ease you through the different stages of labour, calm your fears and reduce labour pains. Reiki helps make your birth less stressful for both you and your baby, and will accelerate your healing post delivery.
Massage is another excellent way to relax and reduce your aches and pains that you can experience during pregnancy. Like Reiki massage can reduce your anxiety, promoting bonding and encourage an easier birth for you and your baby. Partners can also use massage to help you during labour. There are many benefits to having massage during your pregnancy, here are just a few;
Can help relieve your muscle cramps, spasms associated with pregnancy especially in the lower back, neck hips legs
Helps your circulation, which can help reduce swelling
Can regulate your hormones, balancing your moods
Your time to relax and forget about everything for a while
All massages are given whilst you lay on your side in a comfortable position. Safe aromatherapy blends are used to compliment your massage and ensure you get maximum benefit from your treatment. If there are oils you prefer or dislike please let me know when you book in.
Are Reiki Massage safe in pregnancy?
Yes. Reiki and massage are safe for you to use after the first trimester of pregnancy (12 weeks), during labour and delivery, and for recovering after having your baby. Reiki does no harm, only good, and both Reiki and massage work well alongside your medical care provided by midwives or doctors. As your pregnancy progresses you may have to be seated for treatments or lay on your side rather than your back. Treatments can be tailored to your needs, ensuring you will be comfortable and enjoy your treatment.In Pregnancy FAQsHow soon into my pregnancy can I have treatments?Most therapists agree that after the first 12 weeks is the safest time to start having therapies. This is mainly due to the fact that most miscarriages occur in the first twelve weeks of pregnancy. Although it is extremely unlikely that any correctly carried out therapies could affect the outcome of your pregnancy even in the first 12 wks, many therapists choose not to treat people under 12 wks pregnant. Therapies can be enjoyed right through the rest of your pregnancy, and can help induce labour if you go over your due date.I work, do you offer evening or weekend appointments?Yes, as a working mum I feel it is important to offer appointments at a variety of times. Hopefully, this allows people to book appointments at a time that suits them, around any existing commitments whether that be work or family.I am over my due date, can you help?YES! many women get fed up and uncomfortable waiting for their baby to arrive. As a trained pregnancy massage therapist there are areas that I can massage after your due date that will hopefully help you get your labour underway. Reiki also helps to ensure you are mentally prepared for the birth and helps you overcome any fears you may have which may be delaying the onset of your labour.Question 4Question 5
