Manual Treatments & Pregnancy

During pregnancy, hormonal changes and postural adjustments demand peak performance from the body. Loss of mobility during pregnancy can negatively affect the quality of life of the expectant mother and the development and mobility of the unborn child.

Osteopathic or craniosacral treatment increases overall mobility, allowing the body to adapt optimally to the new circumstances. Gentle stretches and mobilizations can reduce back pain, and pain in the pelvic and groin areas.

Digestive problems such as bloating and acid reflux are positively influenced by relaxing the diaphragm area. The stimulation of blood and lymph flow alleviates painful breasts, calf cramps, and dizziness.

The Ideal Birth Preparation

It is very important to relax the pelvic region and the diaphragm before giving birth. An optimal mobility of the pelvis facilitates the passage of the baby through the birth canal. A flexible diaphragm improves breathing of the mother-to-be, enabling more powerful and more efficient contractions.

After a spontaneous birth

During a spontaneous birth, the pelvic area experiences significant strain. This strain, combined with hormonally loosened ligaments and a decrease in abdominal and back muscles, can cause pelvic blockage. This often leads to back pain and irritation of the sciatic nerve.

After a caesarean Section

Following a cesarean section, the healing and scarring process can often disrupt tissue function. Scar tissue is contractile tissue that significantly impacts blood circulation and the mobility of the internal muscles.

These losses in movement lead to tension and changes in posture. During a manual treatment, blood circulation in the tissue is stimulated, and the internal fascial "crosslinks" in the body are released. This makes the scar tissue softer and more elastic.

Your body is supported in regaining balance, allowing for faster regeneration.
