Shiatsu massage can help pregnant women in many ways. It can help bring your energy into balance and to focus on your body and child. It gives you more awareness of what is happening inside the womb and how you can connect at a deeper level. Shiatsu enables you to resonate with your energy life force (Ki in Japanese) and thus to help you listen to your needs with more awareness. During pregnancy, the body goes through many changes both mentally and physically and shiatsu can help you cope with these changes in a more intuitive manner.
Shiatsu brings you back into your body and helps you be more present in everyday life.
During the early stages of pregnancy, the Shiatsu treatment can still be given in a supine (lying on your back) position on the futon. As the pregnancy progresses, we will switch into a sideways position and / or sitting position as to not cause discomfort for you or the baby. The pressure applied is a more gentle pressure than usual. Working with stretches and opening techniques I will help you be more at ease with yourself and help you relax.
I will be happy to assist you during this time. Book an appointment today and get connected with your inner self!
