Is Remedial Massage safe for pregnant women?
Short answer is: YES!
Massage can help relieve some of the tension and pain experienced throughout pregnancy. It can be especially useful to ease discomfort at a time when you can't use particular medicines. Pregnancy massages tend to be on the gentler side.
We use a softer pressure with pregnancy massage due to the tenderness of ligaments with great therapeutic effects. Massages can reduce stress, reduce swelling in the arms and legs and relieve muscle and joint pain in pregnant women.
We have a specially designed pregnancy pillow for the mother to lay face down, however some find that uncomfortable so we instruct them to lay on their side instead. It is not a good idea to lie flat while in the second half of pregnancy since as it may put too much pressure on the vein that runs from your legs to your heart.
We highly recommend a full body 60 minute massage to receive the best value! Book in today to see your leading Canning Vale Remedial Massage Therapists.
What is Myofascial Cupping?
Myofascial cupping is a technique that uses cups and a hand pump to create a vacuum that lifts and separates the layers of soft tissue.
This suction or negative pressure helps increase blood and lymph flow to the area being treated, which can help reduce movement restrictions and increase mobility.
The cups can either be left stationary to help loosen up particularly tight areas, or moved over the skin in a gliding motion to stretch the connective tissues. This technique is often offered as part of a Remedial Massage treatment.
Cupping is a safe, non-invasive, effective treatment that can be useful for a range of conditions. However, some conditions mean that certain patients should not have cupping as part of a Remedial Massage treatment.
What is Dry Needling?
Dry needling is a safe technique performed by a remedial massage therapist, physiotherapist or podiatrist.
A very fine needle is inserted into your skin. The needle is aimed towards a trigger point, or a knot, with the aim of reducing muscle tension and pain.
The insertion of a needle into a trigger point disrupts the local muscular contractions within the trigger point itself. Dry needling also inhibits the pain signals being sent to the brain by the trigger point.
The insertion of the needle stimulates sensory nerves that transmit signals to the brain much faster than the slower nerves receiving input from the trigger point.
Dry needling can be a bit uncomfortable, depending on both the sensitivity of the patient and the tightness of the muscles. The technique creates a dull, aching sensation with the insertion of the needle.
Sometimes the muscle may “twitch” involuntarily as it relaxes and lets go of the trigger point. This sensation may feel a little odd or uncomfortable, but once the sensation passes, patients typically report their muscles feeling looser and easier to move.
