Pregnancy Therapies

 Back pain during pregnancy is extremely common and is often due to the release of a hormone called relaxin. This hormone causes the ligaments in the pelvis to relax, allowing for extra movement during labour, however this extra movement can also result in pain. Acupuncture and Massage are both excellent at relieving this pain and are both completely safe during pregnancy. 

Post-pregnancy back pain is also common and can be corrected with strengthening exercises and soft tissue release.

Do you have a knee injury? Are you suffering from achilles tendonitis? Have you sprained your ankle?

 Kinesiology taping is used to support injured joints, without restricting full range of motion. 


The benefits of K Tape:

  • Pain relief - its elasticity lifts the skin, which immediately reduces pressure on the pain receptors under the skin.
  • Reduces swelling & inflammation -  Reduces pressure on the lymphatic drainage channels and enhances the removal of fluid.
