The Benefits of Massage
Whether you are old or young, everyday living can create a lot of tension in your body.
Massage is known to have a wonderfully therapeutic effect on the entire body, restoring harmony in both mind and body and providing a means to relax and counteract the relentless pressures of home and working life.
LifeForce health solutions boasts a number of WorkCover and Allianz accredited Remedial Massage Therapists.
Pregnancy Massage Therapy
Pregnancy is a time of excitement and joy, but it can also be a stressful time for a mother to be, and massage is a great way to help women through this time of physical, hormonal and psychological change.
Massage throughout a woman’s pregnancy can prevent or minimise the symptoms of pregnancy and the discomforts experienced during the more advanced stages may also be eased. Massage is able to achieve this by helping to resolve or manage areas of weakness that may be secondary to old injuries or past surgeries and posture related dysfunction. For example Pregnancy Massage has proven to be beneficial in reducing the severity of pregnancy-related back pain and the swelling consequent to fluid retention all of which are commonly experienced by women whose bodies progress through this time of dramatic change.
At Lifeforce we use specially shaped pregnancy support cushioning that enables the pregnant woman to be positioned comfortably in the prone position (ie lying on her belly) so that she can truly relax and enjoy her massage.
