Induction Massage in Perth
A pregnancy massage specialist will not perform an “induction massage” as to be honest there is no such thing.
However, there are ways that can help to prepare the mind, body and emotions to sometimes stimulate labour to start naturally.
One of those methods is to have a “labour focus massage”.
It is important to remember that you’re not designed to be pregnant forever, so you can trust your body to do what it is meant to do, when your baby says they are ready to come earthside.
Forcing a healthy baby to come out before they are ready may result in all sorts of complications and interventions, when at that moment in time they are safe, happy and warm inside you.
As with normal massage, labour focus massage helps to relax and calm your body, easing tension and helping to create a clear and grounded space so your mind then recognises that the body is ready to go into labour and starts to release the hormones required to hopefully get things moving.
Labour Focus Massage is a relaxing massage combined with therapeutic and remedial techniques, beautiful essential oils and acupressure applied to specific points of the body linked to the preparation of the body for labour.
A good labour focus massage can help elevate your natural levels of Endorphins (your healing and calming hormones) and Oxytocin (the hormone your body produces when you are relaxed and happy, in love, making love, when you are ready to birth your baby and it is also the hormone responsible for the intense bonding of mother and baby immediately following birth).
Please allow an hour and a half for your labour focus massage so that I can also demonstrate to you the specific acupressure points so that you and your partner can continue to stimulate these points at home.
These acupressure points can also be used during labour if things start to slow down or for calming and relaxation.
