Good for you, good for baby
Many of the problems that we take for granted and accept as a normal part of being pregnant can be prevented. You don’t need to put up with spd/pgp, tired aching legs, varicose veins or swollen ankles; nor do you have to cope with sickness, headaches, or fluid retention. Mizan Therapy helps to relieve these and many other complaints.
Treating yourself to regular Mizan Therapy is relaxing and enjoyable for both you and the baby. Because it promotes circulation, the abdominal muscles are relaxed and strengthened, ready to birth your baby. It’s a great way to encourage your baby into the optimum position ready for birth, leading to a shorter labour and easier birth for you both.
Benefits of Mizan Therapy during pregnancy
- Can help to resolve the symptoms of SPD/PGP
- Relieves common discomforts of pregnancy such as indigestion, heartburn, nausea, low back ache, sciatica, pressure and burning sensation in groin area, constipation, headaches, leg discomfort including varicose veins, frequent urination, incontinence and urinary tract infections
- Encourages the baby and uterus into optimal positioning to facilitate pregnancy, labour and birth (regular treatments can shorten the length of labour and birth, even for first time mums)
- Tones, strengthens and balances the uterus preparing for labour and birth
- Synchronizes mum and baby for birth
- Supports mum and baby relationship by stimulating an increased release of oxytocin, fosters bonding and prepares the uterus and placenta for labour and birth
- Increases circulation to mum and baby
- Reduces tension and anxiety
- Addresses emotional issues on a cellular level and sets healing in motion. In Primal Health, Michael Odent says that the baby’s immune system is developed in the womb and the hormonal reactions of the mother during pregnancy play a role in the health of the baby for the rest of his or her life.
Post natal healing
Having Mizan Therapy post birth is extremely beneficial in assisting the internal organs gently back to their optimum position and function. Depending on the birth, Mizan can usually be safely done before the 6-week check, afterwards in the case of caesarean section. Your Mizan Practitioner will guide you on this.
If the birth was by caesarean section, Mizan will not only guide the uterus back into position, but will also help in breaking down scar tissue and preventing the uterus adhering to other internal organs.
Pregnancy Loss, Miscarriage and Termination
We tend to shy away from talking about loss and miscarriage; it’s hard to grieve and there are no rituals to ease our passage through. And with termination, which can be a very difficult choice, there may also be feelings of shame to add to the grief. Mizan can help to heal and rebalance: your womb, your hormones, your spirit. Whatever the circumstances, you will be treated with compassion by your Mizan practitioner. There is no right or wrong, no set length of time, so get in touch as soon as you feel ready.
