PRENATAL

Enjoy tension relief during one of the most memorable times in your life; your pregnancy! Special precautions are taken to minimize any excess pressure/compression or stretching of the uterus and pelvic floor. Prenatal massage has the potential to reduce anxiety, relieve muscle aches, joint pain and improve overall health for both mom and baby.

-If you choose to lay face-down, specialized pillows and wedges will be used to support your belly on the pregnancy table.

-Side-lying is also an option for all expecting mothers.

We offer 60 and 90 minute prenatal massages. Please call us 204-453-8160 for an appointment.

POSTNATAL

Postnatal massage can be as important and beneficial as massage during  pregnancy. Postnatal Massage can encourage fast healing, re-align hips which are often affected by pregnancy and labour, boost milk production, ease discomfort caused by holding your new baby, and balance hormones.  Newborns may be left with a caregiver or brought to your appointment and left to sleep or brought on the table for soothing or nursing.

We offer 45, 60 and 90 minute therapeutic massages. Please call us 204-453-8160 for an appointment.

TENS (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation)

What is TENS?

TENS (Transcutaneous Electronic Nerve Stimulation) is a safe, effective, easy to use drug-free method of pain relief. It has been successfully used for many years by pregnant women and professional care providers worldwide to treat pain or inflammation and to ease the pain of labour and delivery. TENS is thought to stimulate the release of endorphins (happy hormones) in the body; our body’s own natural pain reliever.  TENS is also thought to block pain signals from reaching the brain by using a pain gate control theory.

When should I use TENS?

You are encouraged to try out the unit when you bring it home or prior to going into labour so that you are familiar with how it works, have time to ask any questions you may have and feel the sensation it produces. *Remember, the pads are reusable, as long as you store them correctly

You can use TENS at home as soon as your labour begins, all the way through to post birth. *Remember to take it off if you have a shower or use a birthing pool!

The advantages of using TENS during childbirth include:

-Totally safe
-Allows mother to control her pain relief
-No effect on the baby
-Allows mother to be mobile during labour

Included with Tens:

-Soft Carrying Pouch
-Machine
-Remote Hand Switch
-2 Lead Probs
-1 Battery and 1 spare Battery
-Quick Start Instructions
-Owners Manual

Available at Nest to rent ONLY.

Cost: $65.00 (plus tax)  for 4 weeks, PLUS a set of Electrodes ($18+GST) – with NO damage deposit required.
