Relaxation for New Mothers

We understand the physical demands that a new mother faces and make your comfort and relaxation our top priority. Depending on your individual needs, post-natal massage is most often performed with you positioned lying on your side comforted by supportive pillowing. Oakville Shiatsu & Massage Therapy Centre practitioners focus primarily on easing tension and soreness in the shoulders, neck, back and legs to help rebalance and return your body to its original state. There is a focus on assisting in reestablishing neutral posture to prevent the common default to forward-flexion frequently experienced as a result of nursing.

Restore Your Body and Mind after Pregnancy

Childbirth and the life changes that follow can be stressful. Many new mothers may feel overwhelmed emotionally and physically by the new demands and lifestyle changes. Post-natal massage is an ideal method for creating some important personal time to reduce stress, anxiety and fatigue and promote your own well-being. Consider taking the first step to restoring your body to its pre-pregnancy condition. Call today to book an appointment and for answers to any questions you may have.
