We’re Here for You
Below you’ll find answers to our clients’ frequently asked questions.
We cover quite a lot of topics, but if there is something we haven’t touched on, please don’t hesitate to ask.
WHO CAN RECEIVE PRE NATAL AND PERINATAL MASSAGE THERAPY ?
Most pregnant women can safely benefit from some type of therapeutic massage and bodywork. Pregnancy is not an illness and pregnant women are not fragile . Depending on the adaptability of the mothers body to pregnancy demands, both the mum and baby can safely receive therapy in each trimester .
IS PRE NATAL MASSAGE SAFE IN FIRST TRIMESTER ?
Many massage therapy practitioners tell client to delay pre natal sessions until after first trimester . The rationale is that such delay avoids the possible association to pregnancy loss , more common in first trimester . The safety of prenatal masssge is relative to the therapist applied knowledge . There is no substantive evidence to support the claim that massge is unsafe for first trimester , especially when appropriate guides are followed . We will do a personalised assessment for each potential client , when she has signs of possible complications , or other health issues , communication with maternity healthcare provider would be prudent . So consent from healthcare provider is recommended.
HOW CAN MASSAGE CONTRIBUTES TO PREPARATION FOR LABOUR ?
Massage by nature is very relaxing. It can help women feel more physically and emotionally prepared to labour and give birth with more awe and wonder and less fear . Women need flexibility to labour efficiently. She must be able to widely abduct her thighs, with her hips and knees deeply flexed . To help her have more options for labour positions , appropriate deep tissue massage, stretches , assisted resisted exercises and other passive movements and techniques for these areas.
WHEN CAN A WOMEN RECEIVE POST MASSAGE THERAPY ? WHAT’S THE TIME LINE FOR NATURAL BIRTH AND C-SECTION BIRTH ?
If the women had a natural delivery , it is safe to start massage from day 5 onwards .
For women healing from cesarean surgery , best to seek approval from healthcare provider before starting treatment.
Generally , lymphatic drainage for post surgical patients helped to enchance circulation , immunological functioning and parasympathetic stimulation . With a planned cesarean birth , pre surgical work is beneficial and post surgical full body lymphatic drainage techniques can facilitate post operative recovery .
You can schedule for treatment anytime within the first 3 months .

“My birth went incredibly smoothly, with a proper water bag bursting and a labor that began shortly after. The entirety of my labor was a quick 4.5 hours from start to end when I got to hold my baby. This was unbelievable as I was told that most mothers labor longest for their first child. I had no need for any medical induction and am so grateful that my wishes had come to pass. I fully credit this success to the help of Nik and her skills in preparing my body. Her positive attitude and peaceful spirit, helped me to think positively throughout the labor process which I believe contributed to my oxytocin levels remaining high, thus, encouraging quick cervical dilation.”
“I was at 18 weeks pregnant when I googled for pregnancy massage service in Perth, Australia-and that’s when I found Nik’s Bodywork service on Google search . I contacted Nik’s Bodywork and was pleased that I had Lenny to care for me during my pre & post natal process . The pre natal work had contributed to a smooth delivery experience and I birthed my baby boy naturally within 8 hours of labour, unmedicated birth at 39 weeks. During post-partum treatments , the pelvic and back techniques were again helpful to assist my body in the transition to my pre pregnancy state . Her herbal and wrap technique was AMAZING! It helps to detoxify my body and the i truly enjoyed the “whole body experience” - prenatally as well as post natal .Thank you Lenny for all your help and support . The fact that I was able to receive this treatment in the comfort of my own home meant that I didn’t have the stress of leaving the house before and so soon after giving birth. Lenny is systematic , knowledgeable, professional , friendly and accommodating. I would most definitely put in a good word for Nik’s Bodywork to my peers in Perth Australia .
Thank you Lenny & Nik’s Bodywork Team , You are the Best! “
