Is there any woman more in need of a little pampering and relaxation than an expectant mother to be? Pregnancy spa treatments are becoming ever more popular as ways for mums-to-be to relax and wind down, and gentle massages and treatments can help relieve the aches and discomforts that a new pregnancy brings to your body.
It is always recommended that you speak with your midwife or GP before using the spa facilities while pregnant.
Keen spa seekers may be aware that there are two types of pregnancy massage available at Titanic Spa in Yorkshire. Each of the treatments are bespoke and personally adapted to your individual needs and stage of your pregnancy. Benefits of pregnancy massage include relief of tension or discomfort in your back and alleviation of swelling in your hands or feet. Pregnancy massage can also help to reduce the effect of stretch marks, reduce water retention and help with complexion problems.
As any pregnant woman or spouse of a pregnant woman knows, the further your pregnancy develops, the harder it is to reach your feet. The Elemis ‘Sole Delight Grooming for Feet’ is one of the perfect pregnancy spa treatments offered to mums-to-be visiting Titanic Spa. This indulgent treatment is a total sensory experience for your feet using warm essential oils for extra rich hydration, a real treat if your bump is restricting access to that part of your body!
These therapies focus on rejuvenation and healing of the spirit. Titanic Spa offers Indian head massage for pregnant women; designed to alleviate stress, this treatment focuses on the scalp, neck and shoulders, leaving you feeling refreshed and relaxed. Another popular alternative therapy for pregnant women is Reflexology, which stimulates pressure points on the feet to rebalance the body’s system of energy.
