New video segment - not included in your birth education DVDs ...

De-stress with self massage

As we all know, sleep and fatigue can take their toll on new mothers (and their partners), and increase stress levels. 

Kylie is the massage therapist on our birth education DVDs.  She discusses massage in pregnancy, accupressure points for use during labour, and baby massage. 

Today, Kylie's friend Tarnie shows how to de-stress in less than 3 minutes with a massage that you can do yourself- anywhere, anytime.

Self massage is easy and relaxing.  In the process of rubbing and putting pressure into various parts of your face, neck and scalp, you touch pressure points that help to calm and relax you.

Get ready for your massage by:

1) Rubbing your hands together quickly to warm them up, and use a little olive oil or face cream to reduce friction if desired. 

2) Take some deep breaths, breathing in through your nose, and out through your mouth, letting your tension go from your shoulders with your ‘out breath’.   

3) Press ‘play’ and give yourself a face, neck and scalp massage that will help to rejuvenate you for your day.

Included on DVD1 of our Birthing Sense series is a 5-minute relaxation for you to practice.  Relaxation is a key to relieving your stress, along with exercise and a healthy diet.
