Postnatal Mama Massage

Postnatal Mama Massage

You can only take care of others when you take care of yourself first

The weeks and months after birth form a unique phase in a woman’s live. It is a phase in which self care is more important than ever.

During pregnancy and vaginal birth your body has delivered a top performance, and both after vaginal birth and c-section, your body needs ample time, rest and relaxation to physically recover. Massage can be very supportive of your recovery process in many ways:

  • Massage stimulates blood flow, which enables both the supply of nutrients and oxygen to the whole of the body, and the clears the body of its waste products.
  • Massage helps to balance and support blood flow to the hormone producing organs, which can support both a more stable hormonal balance, as well as contribute to your emotional and mental well-being.
  • Massage enables you to rest and relax in a deep and profound way, to balance those broken nights.
  • The massage pays explicit attention to the relaxation of the shoulder and upper back area, which may feel tense as a result of the many (breast)feeding times.

Not just a massage:

In short, a postnatal Mama massage will support both your physical, hormonal, mental and emotional recovery after birth.

Your treatment is offered to you by one of our specialized massage therapists. At studio Vandaan, we are much more than just masseuses. We are either also prenatal & postnatal yoga teacher or doula and we even have a former physiotherapist among us. We not only bring our our warm hands but also our knowledge about the female body, pregnancy and birth to the massage table, to answer any questions or worries you may have.
