Bowen Technique can assist both partners with being at their optimum physical, emotional and mental peak so that conception can occur naturally.
By being relaxed, rebalanced and detoxed, the body will be in a healthy state for becoming pregnant.
Bowen Technique can then benefit the mother to be, with many of the changes that occur through pregnancy, morning sickness, tiredness, lethargy, tender breasts, back pain, neck and shoulder tension, breast tenderness, aching legs, swollen ankles, mood swings, constipation, and digestive problems. Bowen can be done through light clothing, sitting, lying on the side, or even standing up, so it ensures your comfort at all times. This massage technique is so unique and because it’s so gentle, it is safe for very young babies and youngsters; both of whom really enjoy the treatment immensely.
Ease muscle tension with a relaxing massage using support and massage techniques tailored to your stage of pregnancy.
Available after first trimester and only while you are comfortable.
During pregnancy the body undergoes many changes and extra tension in the muscular-skeletal system, from hormones, and your centre of gravity shifting to cater for additional weight a pregnancy massage can help you feel more relaxed enabling you to enjoy your pregnancy more.
A gentle, soothing relaxation massage or specialised pregnancy massage during this special time can help reduce the symptoms of oedema in pregnancy. Not only can excess fluid be reduced but you can reap the rewards as other symptoms such as sleeplessness, aches and pains are reduced. It is indicated that the duration of labour can be shortened if regular massage is practised. But don’t hold your breath – the jury is still out on that one for many people. However, in saying that – massage is an effective tool, widely used as an alternative natural method of pain relief during labour.
I can guide your partner in effective massage to help you during your labour to assist in a rewarding birth experience.A Pregnancy Massage can be performed to your needs – from thirty minutes to one hour. This can change depending on your level of discomfort. Massage studies demonstrate positively just how beneficial therapeutic massage can be. That said, you should become aware of a noticeable difference in your health and well-being in the third trimester if your pattern of regular massage treatments increase. From great to wonderful is a term often attributed to many pregnancy treatments.
Massage can help ease recurring problems during this period of pregnancy, such as cramps in the legs, lower back pain, sciatica and tension in the shoulders which can cause some pain.
You will find it more comfortable and it is much easier in the first trimester for you to lay face down, primarily because the growing baby is not visibly pronounced.
At around 25 weeks or when it becomes too uncomfortable, we can use support which will allow a pregnant woman to enjoy a massage while laying on her front. This type of massage naturally eases the pressure placed on the lower back. The pregnant woman can also be massaged for a short period of time in a semi-sitting position using pillows. The Pregnancy Massage can also be conducted while the woman is lying on her side with the support of pillows.
Your comfort and safety is my priority. For this reason, I will only conduct a pregnancy massage if you are 12+ weeks gestation and not experiencing complications.
As a competent and caring therapist of Therapeutic Massage and practitioner of Bowen Therapy, I am conscious that your pregnant body is not public property. Nor should it be. Strangers gravitate towards an obviously pregnant woman to pat, discuss, comment and provide unsolicited advice.
As an experienced practitioner, I am an experienced practitioner, respectful of the stage of your pregnancy and mindful of your modesty. Your comfort and concerns are a priority and your massage will be tailored to suit your individual needs.
A WELL DESERVED TREAT
You, your body and your baby are going through so much together. Although it may not seem like it, your body is rapidly changing daily, hormones are raging throughout your body, ligaments stretch and you may become more emotional and tired. Your body naturally will adjust to changing needs and you might experience some muscular pain.
Therapeutic massage can benefit your changing body by releasing more feel-good endorphins to help you relax more which will relieve tension and pain from your neck right down to your buttocks. Targeting specific areas such as the neck, upper and lower back, hips and buttocks can send messages from the brain to your relaxed leg muscles reducing the symptoms of muscular cramps.
Pregnancy massage and relaxation can help reduce the symptoms of headaches. Naturally produced endorphins can reduce anxiety, stress and help produce a better night’s sleep. After all, what’s best for you, is best for bub.
Toni's treatment has taken Bowen to a whole new level.
Toni treated my 5 week old baby boy with Bowen therapy because we were experiencing issues with feeding and lower wind. The Bowen treatment is just like baby massage, my baby was relaxed and thoroughly enjoyed his treatment. He was content and didn’t seem as agitated with wind pains. Over the coming days, I noticed even more changes. He was feeding better, sleeping better and happier. I would recommend Toni’s Bowen treatments to anyone but especially new babies.
My wife and I were having aches and pains. A relative recommended Bowen Therapy, we searched the internet and found Toni. That was over five years ago. Toni is not only knowledgeable, but is also caring as well as sensitive to our needs. After treatment we feel a lot more relaxed.
