Here at Earth and Skin Organic Day Spa Gold Coast we pride ourselves in being a safe and nurturing haven for our Mums-to-Be. It is important to look after your health and the health of your unborn baby throughout your pregnancy and that is why we ensure that our pregnancy massage is only performed by therapists who hold a certificate in Pregnancy Massage.
Mums-to-be, love our Mother Massage which incorporates appropriate support, specialised movements and targeted techniques. Our qualified therapists have taken the time to educate themselves with a deeper understanding of the body’s needs during this stage of your life.
Certain skincare ingredients, techniques, positions and trigger points on the body can cause you to feel unwell or lead to complications which is why it is important to seek an expert who is qualified and experienced in offering these treatments during pregnancy. You and your baby’s wellbeing is our highest priority at Earth and Skin.
About our Mother Massage
Our Mother Massage focuses on calming the nervous system, allowing a peaceful space for you to recharge your energy.
This head to toe treatment in a supportive side lying position (you’ll feel like you’re tucked up in bed) incorporates gentle movements through the lower back, hips and shoulders to release tension and support the changes that are happening to the body. Allowing time to process and calm any anxiety, excitement and overwhelm throughout your second and third trimester or pre-labour.
This Mother Massage works beautifully alongside the support of physio or acupuncture. For the safety of both mum and baby, we only perform pregnancy massage at 13 weeks or over.
If you’re still in the early stages of pregnancy or would prefer another experience, we have a number of other pregnancy safe treatments available.
Our popular 30-minute facial that will refresh and nourish all skin types with an infusion of Organic Australian Skincare with all pregnancy safe ingredients.
This customised pregnancy safe organic facial uses elevated support to ensure the utmost safety and comfort of both the baby and mother. An enriching facial delivers exceptional nutrient dense elixirs to revitalise dry, sensitive or hormonal skin. The treatment is infused with advanced antioxidants and essential fatty acids to support and hydrate the skin, ﬁght free radical damage and protect from visible signs of ageing.
This is our Pregnancy Signature Experience designed as a gentle nurturing treat for Mum-to-be. We start with our customised pregnancy safe Mother Facial and follow on with our Maidenhair Ritual providing a soothing scalp massage and hair treatment. Finishing at the feet with an exfoliating salt foot scrub and gentle foot massage to ease tired limbs, edema, swollen feet and ensure pampering from head to toe.
Self-care during pregnancy doesn’t need to stop when you leave our spa. Our beautiful pregnancy rituals for home and labour are popular as gifts to yourself or your expectant friend.
Create a self-care ritual at home
We finish every Mother Massage with a warm towel and a few drops of Body Oil for you to massage into the belly and breasts. Take home a bottle with you after your treatment to use daily on damp skin after a shower or bath. Involve your partner by asking them to lightly massage the oil into your thighs, hips & belly to involve them in your pregnancy journey. This oil will help support the skin’s changes and elasticity.
Distract your mind from contraction pains
Light a naturally scented candle (available in our Beauty Shop) across the room whilst at home to distract your mind from contraction pains. Focus on the aromas, the colour of the candle, the flame. Breathe out towards the candle, slowly then quickly, to work out which speed is right for you. Trying to blow the flame out from the otherside of the room during labour to distract from contraction pains.
Give yourself the time to breathe and keep your mind in sync with your body in preparation for birth. All whilst knowing you’re in the safe and educated hands of a qualified therapist who can tailor the treatment to your individual pregnancy journey.
