At-home Mama & Baby Massage in Brisbane
Hey Brisbane Mums! You can now receive a range of evidenced based Massage treatments in the comfort of your own home with OM MAMA.
OM MAMA believes in the traditional and sacred time that motherhood brings, and believes in nurturing Mums throughout Motherhood paying particular attention to the 4th Trimester. In traditional cultures, Mothers are nurtured, nourished and cared for during pregnancy and for the first 3 months after the baby is born.
Through their Traditional therapies such as Ayurvedic Massage and Meditation to Remedial Massage and their sister site Wellness College online, OM MAMA can provide treatments in your own home as well as online classes in children's massage, meditation and energy building techniques.
Founder, Lauren Rovers, Myotherapist and Nationally Accredited Trainer, shows us through her evidence based practice, the physical and emotional benefits massage therapy has on mothers and their children:
On a physical level – Massage can help to increase the joints range of motion, assist in decreasing the pain associated with ‘growing pains’, and muscle spasms, as well as increase flexibility and strengthen the immune system by releasing white blood cells and moving lymph fluid. Massage to children has also been shown to decrease their anxiety and release the relaxation hormone dopamine.
Evidence on Mums providing Massage to their little ones, shows an increase in connection with the child, a decrease in anxiety and depression and an improvement in general coping skills, as well as better sleep for the infants, and an improvement in colic for the infant.
Wellness Treatments for both Mum and the Family are available from the 6th of December in the following areas:
