Steph is our resident massage therapist at Health Down South. She welcomes you into our massage sanctuary for a relaxing and soothing massage. Pregnancy, postpartum and therapeutic massage available.
Pregnancy & Postnatal Massage
Massage can bring huge benefits, not just during pregnancy but also in the prenatal and postnatal periods, helping you to prepare and recover in your journey.
Massage during pregnancy helps to support you emotionally and physiologically during a time when your body is undergoing significant changes. Massage not only benefits Mum, but also the unborn baby. Endorphins, known as the 'feel good hormones' are released by Mum during the massage, which are then passed onto an incredibly happy growing baby.
As an experienced Mum and Massage therapist I welcome you into a caring and safe environment where I will nurture and nourish you through your amazing journey
What is Therapeutic Massage?
Deep tissue and Passive stretch massage is as unique as the individual receiving it. Its intention is to heal, whether it is gentle or whether it is firm, the intention is the same. Here is what happens on a cellular level – Passive stretch promotes the lengthening in the sometimes-tight fascia. Fascia in plain language is the gladwrap that binds and bounds our muscle structures. The application of these combined massage therapies will help increase the circulation to and through the fibers, which then releases the fascia’s tight grip on our muscular, neural and vascular systems. This then creates and increases our range of motion as well as a decrease in discomfort or pain that you may be experiencing.
