Just because your hormones are raging as your body works hard to create a brand new life within you, it doesn’t mean you have to suffer in silence, or at all. The qualified pregnancy massage therapists at both our Gold Coast and Underwood clinics know how to help your body and mind relax, de-stress, and function as efficiently and harmoniously as possible throughout this miraculous phase of your life.

During pregnancy a woman’s body undergoes many amazing structural and physiological changes. Yes, some of these changes can cause discomforts which are often due to the extra weight you are carrying and the gradual shift in your body’s centre of gravity. At Optimal Body, either in our Gold Coast or Underwood clinic, our specialised pregnancy massage therapists can help your body adjust and relax.

The specialised pregnancy massage therapists at Optimal Body’s Gold Coast and Underwood clinics use a combination of Swedish and Remedial Massage techniques to assist with the tensions and pains that may be experienced during pregnancy.

Care must be taken during the first trimester but Pregnancy Massage is beneficial throughout the whole pregnancy. Various techniques are used as the client progresses through the pregnancy and massage may be performed whilst she is lying on her side, seated, or on a special table that allows her to lie on her stomach. Once the pregnancy is advanced, she is discouraged from lying on her back as this may cause pressure on deep blood vessels.

Regular massage therapy throughout the pregnancy is also said to shorten labour time and the return to optimal fitness after birth.

Why wait? Don’t let your pregnancy glow fade because of unnecessary stress, pain or discomfort! Give Optimal Body’s Gold Coast or Underwood clinic a call and let our pregnancy massage therapists help you to make sure your pregnancy is one to remember for all the right reasons!
