* Postpartum Massage

Labour and delivery can be very taxing to the body and massage can assist with recovery. Abdominal massage within a few hours of a normal delivery can help contract the uterus and thereby assist is the reduction of bleeding. Abdominal massage also helps stomach muscles return to their original position to minimise the occurrence of Diastasis Recti (Tummy Separation). If you underwent a C-section, abdominal massage can proceed after 6 weeks and on advice of your medical professional.
Other common postpartum complaints include painful / displaced coccyx and severe lower back pain which with early treatment provide the best rate of recovery.
The onset of breastfeeding brings about its own set of challenges. Getting into and maintaining an optimal position to feed your baby puts quite a bit of strain on the upper body. The arms, shoulders, neck and upper back can benefit from regular treatment.
Postpartum massage can assist in reducing the onset of Post Natal Depression.
