PREGNANCYCHIROPRACTIC

 

Chiropractic care is extremely beneficial during pregnancy and we treat many mum’s to beat our centre.

 

Pre-existing imbalances in your spine and pelvis become more exaggerated when pregnant. Over the course of your pregnancy, the organ positioning and musculoskeletal system will also shift greatly and it is extremely important that your pelvis, joints, spine and nervous system is healthy, fully functioning and properly aligned for maximum comfort. This also allows for your growing baby to have optimal development and positioning during gestation. Studies also show that expecting mothers, who have ongoing chiropractic care through pregnancy, experience less pain and shorter labour times.

Positions during nursing or simply carrying your little one can also put new pressures on your back and shoulders. During this window we will discuss and treat these symptoms as required. Many mothers find post-natal Chiropractic a helpful, warm and caring approach. Aside from the physical transitions, the one month period after birth can be extremely emotional for mothers, so receiving relief from discomfort and support to the nervous systemin a caring and supportive environment is extremely important.

Vitality and Nourishment is perhaps one of the most crucial aspects of the postpartum stage of birth and for all sorts of good reasons from growth and energy levels to weight issues, intolerances, and allergies. The new demands, new way of life and the sleep deprivation can leave little time to think about your nutritional need sand breastfeeding diet. Getting nursing nutrition right is especially important for a breastfeeding Mother and her baby. What you eat during this period can affect the quality, nutritional content and flavour of your breastmilk. After your initial consultation to identify needs and outcomes, your nutritionist will discuss and guide you through a program designed specifically to bring you and baby to optimal health.

Rejuvenate – Month Three Post Natal Massage Therapy

We believe this is the perfect time for some delicious pampering! Your tummy will be less tender and hopefully you will be more settled into your new routine. It’s time to take sometime out completely for you, to relax and treat those achy bits.  If you’re anything like the most of us, you’ll agree that a peacefully sleeping baby is worth a little discomfort, often finding yourself dozing or nursing in uncomfortable positions just to get those five minutes. Over time though this can create areas of significant tension through the body, particularly the back, neck and shoulders. Your massage therapist will target and release areas to ease any aches and pains, stretch out tight or sore muscles and help realign your posture. She will also alleviate any stress of the mind with aromatherapy and the power of a gorgeous healing relaxation massage.
