Pregnancy Massage

Pregnancy is an exciting time! As your beautiful baby develops your body makes the necessary natural physical and chemical changes within.


At Performance Medicine, we recommend using pregnancy massage to relax and relieve muscular tension that may arise due to increased laxity in the joints, changes in centre of gravity and breathing biomechanics.


Research has found there is a wide range of reasons that Pregnancy Massage is not only good for Mum but for Bub too!

  • It aids lymphatic drainage to help decrease fluid retention, eliminate toxins and increase circulation; in turn increasing blood flow, nutrients and oxygen supply to your baby.
  • Soft tissue massage and oils enhances the pliability of your skin and underlying tissues and increases skin hydration and health.
  • Massage can increase ‘feel good’ hormone levels which act as mood elevators and may therefore increase sleep quality and decrease the likelihood of post-natal depression.
  • The ‘feel good’ hormones will not only help relax you as a mother but will also have a calming effect on your baby.
  • It may also decrease the chance of low birth weight and premature birth of your baby. Your pregnancy massage is helping two people!
