During pregnancy, your body goes through a dramatic change; physical, hormonal and emotional. Many of these changes put considerable pressure your the joints and muscles of your spine and pelvis, and can commonly affect other areas such as the ribcage, hips, lower limb and the neck.
When looking for massage or treatment during pregnancy, you want a practitioner with experience and caring personality so you feel comfortable that you're in good hands.
A clinical myotherapist understands how to make you comfortable and suitable treatment to work with your pregnancy. At RPM Myotherapy we have a pregnancy pillow that allows you to lie comfortably on your stomachyou’re your treatment or massage. If this doesn’t suit you, there are many other treatment positions we can use to achieve the same goal.
Some common complaints during pregnancy that may be assisted by clinical myotherapy treatment and massage are:
Headaches and neck pain
Low back and pelvic pain
Referred buttock or leg pain or sciatica
Lower limb swelling or fluid retention
