Good for you, good for baby
Many of the problems that we take for granted and accept as a normal part of being pregnant can be prevented. You don’t need to put up with spd/pgp, tired aching legs, varicose veins or swollen ankles, nor do you have to cope with sickness, headaches, or fluid retention. Mizan pregnancy massage helps to relieve these and many other complaints.
Treating yourself to regular treatments during pregnancy is relaxing and enjoyable for both you and the baby. Because it promotes circulation, the abdominal muscles are relaxed and strengthened, ready to birth your baby. It’s a great way to encourage your baby into the optimum position ready for birth, leading to a shorter labour and easier birth for you both.
Benefits of Mizan pregnancy massage
- Can help to resolve the symptoms of SPD/PGP
- Relieves common discomforts of pregnancy such as indigestion, heartburn, nausea, low back ache, sciatica, pressure and burning sensation in groin area, constipation, headaches, leg discomfort including varicose veins, frequent urination, incontinence and urinary tract infections
- Encourages the baby and uterus into optimal positioning to facilitate pregnancy, labour and birth (regular treatments can shorten the length of labour and birth, even for first time mums)
- Tones, strengthens and balances the uterus preparing for labour and birth
- Synchronizes mum and baby for birth
- Supports mum and baby relationship by stimulating an increased release of oxytocin, fosters bonding and prepares the uterus and placenta for labour and birth
- Increases circulation to mum and baby
- Reduces tension and anxiety
- Addresses emotional issues on a cellular level and sets healing in motion. In Primal Health, Michael Odent says that the baby’s immune system is developed in the womb and the hormonal reactions of the mother during pregnancy play a role in the health of the baby for the rest of his or her life.
Post natal healing
Having Mizan post-birth is extremely beneficial in assisting the pelvic organs gently back to their optimum position and function. Depending on the birth, Mizan can usually be safely done following the 6-week check, although if you see me before the birth, I can teach you a lovely routine to do yourself that you can start almost immediately following the birth.
If the birth was by caesarean section, Mizan will not only guide the uterus back into position, but will also help in breaking down scar tissue and preventing the uterus adhering to other internal organs.
