The process of creating life puts your body through many unpleasant changes. Massage during pregnancy is a comforting and supportive way to make this stage of your life enjoyable for you and baby.

Massage to the lower back and hips, relieves muscle tension and reduces pain in these areas. With long, smooth strokes to the arms and legs, and gentle pressure to the hands and feet, massage gives mommy and baby a connected and stress free.

Pregnancy Massage Mississauga

Postpartum, Breast, and Infant Massage
After the birth of your baby, your body is once again undergoing a transformation. The task of being a mother is both physically and mentally challenging. Breast tenderness from engorgement or over production of milk can be painful, especially if the milk ducts become plugged and infected. Post-partum massage relieves the painful pressure by improving drainage of fluid in the breast. Breast Massage also increases milk production for those with underactive glands.

Post-partum massage aids in recovery of overworked, sore muscles from labour, carrying, and feeding your baby. The best part of receiving massage during this period is the relief of mental and emotional stress that comes with motherhood. Having this time to yourself allows for better bonding with you and your baby, which is important in your baby’s development and your recovery. You may also request a demonstration of infant massage that teaches you techniques to sooth your baby, help him or her with tummy problems, and improve overall development of your infant.

IndieHead Massage
Created in India thousands of years ago, an Indian head massage focuses on the head, neck and shoulders. Today, as part of modern massage therapy, the head massage is used to release tension within the muscles of HNS. As the therapist works through the areas, they may find trigger points, or microscopic spams of the muscle fibers. These trigger points along with general muscle tension contribute greatly to headaches, pain behind the eyes, unexplained ear aches and tooth aches, and problems with the movement and sometime pain in the joints of the jaw. Take away the trigger points – and your head will feel light as a feather! The head massage also increase circulation,bringing nutrient rich blood to the skin and muscles. This allows for repair of any damage, and supports energy production along with waste removal. This relieves muscle fatigue and all ailments explained above, but it is also great for esthetic reasons; improving the look and health of your skin and waking up your hair follicles for thicker longer hair.

The session can go anywhere from 15 to 60 minutes, and the therapist may or may not use certain oils if requested. The massage includes gentle strokes, kneading, tapping of the face, and gentle pulling of the hair.

As a side note, although at the end of the treatment you may feel great, there is a chance that youwon't look great. Your hair will be messy, so bring in a hair brush or comb, or a hat or scarf to cover up before you go home, especially if oil has been used in your treatment. It is also not recommended to book your session at a time where you will be heading back to work or going out with friend's right after your treatment!

Using heated Marble or Jade stones to massage the body can be relaxing and beneficial. As the heat from the stones promotes circulation it aids in detoxifying the body, while the pressure and gliding of the stones over the muscles relieves tension and pain.

For instance, while their client is facing down, the therapist will place two large stones on the upper leg, one large stone on the calf, one medium sized stone at the arch above the ball of the foot, and four small stones between each toe. Once the stones are laid on both legs and feet, the legs are covered up with a blanket. The therapist while then move on to massage the back and arms. While using other heated stones the therapist will glide a stone on the full length of the back muscles or apply a stationary deeper pressure in areas of trigger points and adhesions. The process is repeated on all the other remaining areas.
