Post Natal Massage Singapore

Post Natal Massage SingaporePost natal massage is designed for women and given after giving birth. Having full-body massage is necessary to help in fast recovery and gaining back the strength and most importantly, to get back in shapes. Luana Therapy provides professional and experienced therapist in providing the post-natal massage together with traditional Javanese massage or jamu massage service to ensure mothers get the best benefits out of it. You may also add on ginger wrap or boreh wrap and it helps on slimming treatment. The post natal massage session will be performed on daily basis from 5, 7 or 10 session based on your preference. Besides that, the mother can be massaged with our portable massage bed which is provided by us or massage at your mattress.

Full body massage can be employed as soon as the new mother came home. However, for a mother who had undergone the caesarian section, it would take longer time until the wound heals. Since a cesarean is a major surgery, the mother may feel a lot of pain. This means it’s important to recover first after undergoing a surgery. A mother should wait until she recovers before she can start receiving the massage. It is strongly suggest the massage start after 3 to 5 weeks after the doctor has confirmed whether the mother is ready. As long the massage stays away from the scar or the abdomen they will help the mother recover fast after around 5 weeks.

However, before embarking on this, a new mother needs to arrange for some help since she will be staying for more than an hour with the newborn and this can be quite challenging. It will be better if your confinement nanny, babysitter or your baby’s grandmother can watch over the baby.

On the other hand, this particular massage should not be given to mum if there are skin problems like blisters, rashes, eczema and boils as well as hernia. Lighter massage is recommended if a new mother has a history of hypertension.

What is the Benefits of Post Natal Massage

  • Giving birth requires a lot of the energy to deliver the baby from a mother. Therefore, a woman feels pain all over her body particularly the abdomen, hips, and the lower and upper back. This massage helps to increase the blood flow and the oxygen throughout your muscles as well as in eliminating toxins.
  • Restores the body. Following pregnancy and after delivery, the body of woman often undergoes a lot of changes that a woman might not find normal. Postnatal massage treatment, therefore, assist to re adjust the body so as to return back to the non-pregnant state. This will not only facilitate healing but will also establish the pelvic structure. Slimming massage technique will also tone and flatten the abdominal muscles.
  • During the massage, the body releases oxytocin that triggers the let-down of reflex that releases the milk from the breast of the mother. This means a breast massage will help open up any blocked milk duct on the breast, loosen the hard areas and prevent the risk of mastitis. However, vigorous massage on the breast should be avoided since it can do more harm than good to the mother.
  • Post natal massage also supports and relaxes the mother. This means that the mother gets the opportunity to relax in between the rigors of baby care that come with giving birth. A relaxed mother means a relaxed bay. This will reduce anxiety, boost the energy levels and minimize the feelings that might come due to stress.
  • If a mother delivers through caesarean section, this special massage can also help speed up the recovery period that comes with this. Although the mother should steer clear of the wound as long as it has not healed, gentle massage of the area around the wound will increase blood supply and assist with the internal healing of the body.
  • The stroking and kneading action can help in toning and tightening the stretched muscles, especially the tummy and also helps mothers to get back to their pre-pregnancy shape.
  • It helps your body to release endorphins, which acts as pain killers.
  • Reducing spasms, cramps and aches. It can also reduce the risk of developing postpartum depression. Massage is a good mood enhancer and stress buster.

Post Natal Massage Techniques and Your Expectation

While undergoing post natal massage, any position is often ideal and safe after delivery. However, to ensure that the mother is comfortable the position may be adjusted for specific treatment. In fact, some moms love to lie on their back or lie when facing down. This may be uncomfortable while facing down because of the distraction that comes about due to milk leaking and the discomfort caused by the breast. This is why the side-lying position can not only be comfortable but also used to treat specific areas of the body such as the pelvis legs and shoulders. Some of the common post natal techniques include

  • Jamu massage– This is one of the most famous post natal techniques. This massage helps to tighten the stomach muscles. Previously, a heavy brick was used as a compress during the massage but this is not anymore. After every massage season, a binding is done that is essential to help the tummy flatten fast.
  • Swedish massage or Javanese massage – This massage is ideal when it comes to new mothers. It includes effleurage followed by petrissage which is simply a method of kneading. This helps a lot to tone the strained muscles as a result of pregnancy.
  • Bengkung wrap– This is a traditional binding procedure done by tying a long strip of cloth around the abdomen during post natal recovery period. This procedure ensures that there is a strong support for the wound a. This special massage not only feels good but also helps to slim the belly, rib cage, and hips. Remember, during pregnancy mothers body retains water, oil, and fats that might cause the boy to fatten and swell. It’s, therefore, important to get rid of this. At Luana Therapy, there will be 2 different types of cloth binders that we use. There will be one type for normal delivery and another type for mother who went for caesarian.
  • Breast massage– While breast massage during pregnancy is important, there are also many benefits for breast massage. Although you might concentrate on the belly and the legs, it’s also important to check on the breast. During pregnancy, there are many hormones circulating on the body. These hormones can cause a lot of swelling on the breast leading to discomfort, pain sensitivity, and soreness. Post natal massage that focuses on the breast can, therefore, minimize the effects of these.
  • Tummy massage– A mother’s tummy might be rounder and squishier. This means she might need a lot of toning to bring it back to normal. It’s, therefore, very important to undergo tummy massage.
