Therapies – Before and After Pregnancy
A holistic way to take care of yourself during pregnancy is through therapies such as chiropractic treatments, physiotherapy, massage and acupuncture. Since the body is constantly changing during pregnancy it is important that you maintain optimum levels of health and strength.
One example of a potentially beneficial therapy is the Webster Technique, a chiropractic procedure that can correct or reduce in-utero constraints. For pre-natal water aerobics classes, call Fitness Connection (345) 949 8485.
To get back into shape post-pregnancy, contact Beyond Basics Medical Day Spa (Tel: (345) 945 2737). They offer a ‘Body after Baby’ contouring solution called Venus Freeze. Also, ‘CoolSculpting’ is an FDA approved, non-invasive procedure that eliminates fat. There is no need for surgery or any recovery time. Call Cayman Doctors Ltd. (Tel: (345) 943 6363) for more information.
Make sure you get full approval from your doctor before you engage in any type of exercise or massage therapy. Some establishments will advise against massage before your pregnancy has reached three months.
