The pregnancy phase itself is already a lot of work for a mother-to-be. What about the aftermath that comes after it? Well, it has definitely proven to be a lot worse.
Fret not, because a good massage is here to save the day. A Jamu postnatal massage in Singapore has a lot of benefits to offer for mothers who are going through post birth phase.
1. Let Out Wind from the Body
Expelling wind from the bodies is a traditional practice during confinement period that is still being used up to this day. To go through this practice, postnatal massage therapists use Jamu oil, also known as Lemongrass oil mixed with ginger cream, to apply on the mothers’ body to expel wind from the body. Lemongrass oil helps in all kinds of digestive difficulties and promotes regular blood circulation. The Jamu oil used is specially homemade by blending Lemongrass oil together with other types of herbs, all handpicked by our professional massage therapist.
2. Get Rid of Engorgement
During the postpartum period, most mothers’ experience difficulty with breastfeeding because of engorgement. Getting rid of engorgement is quite an important part of the massage, particularly for those mothers who desire to breastfeed their new born. For the milk ducts to be cleared in the breast area, a massage will be done to alleviate the pain and promote better flow of breast milk.
3. Massaging Womb Back to Place
Special techniques are specifically crafted for the massage therapist to put the womb back to where it was, into its initial place and to its actual size. It is a crucial part of a Jamu postnatal massage as it helps to improve mothers’ fertility after childbirth.
4. Tightening of the Abdominal Area
Jamu massage is also widely known for being a type of slimming massage as it helps to remove fats. During pregnancy, the tummy area will naturally start to stretch out and expand. As a result, one of the common issues that mothers’ face post birth is getting a flabby tummy. All massage therapists are well-experienced and well-trained to massage your stomach using a proper method to increase weight loss and the burning of fats.
Having continuous treatment around that area helps to tighten the muscles. Subsequently, it helps in better digestion as massaging the abdominal area pushes the intestine to work more quickly.
5. Gives You a Better Sleep at Night
Once every new born has been conceived, the same problem that most mothers experience is waking up at night from their baby’s cries. This is when the popular Jamu slimming massage is famed for letting mothers have some “personal time” at night, by having a good night’s rest. After all, it is not an easy task to take care of your baby right after you have given birth. This practice is said to allow mothers to feel more relaxed and let them have a better sleep at night.
So, mothers in Singapore who have just joined the maternity stage in their life, here’s a choice you can make to have an easier postpartum period. I mean, where’s the harm in getting a massage? In fact, the benefits are aplenty.
To indulge in the maximum experience of a Jamu massage, you should attend at least 8 to 11 sessions (as recommended by professionals) so as to see visible results from the massage.
