Postnatal Treatments in Southfields
Our postnatal treatments combine Craniosacral and Myofascial therapy to support bones and ligaments through the increased hormones that pregnancy and birth bring.
During pregnancy, many mums experience restrictions and shifting in the pelvis, which can trigger tension in the nervous system. The sooner the pelvis issues, or potential trauma of c-section and/or epidural are released from the body, the easier and quicker the healing process will be.
There are a range of postnatal treatments available, different types of massage are appropriate for different mums. A postpartum massage may involve a range of techniques, from light touch to deeper pinpoint techniques. In addition to physical touch, essential oils may be used in the form of massage oils, lotions or air diffusers, and music may be employed to bring your body to a state of relaxation*.
