Inertia MassageMassage is a great way to promote comfort and relaxation in pregnancy. A good massage can reinvigorate your body and increase blood flow while relieving some of the common aches and pains associated with pregnancy. Pregnancy massage in Brisbane is something that virtually all mothers appreciate.

Throughout the term of a woman’s pregnancy, constant changes occur both to the fetus as it grows and develops and to the woman as her body grows to accommodate these fetal changes. Massage pleasantly and effectively eliminates many of the adverse effects of stress and promote general well-being. Let’s look briefly the physiological changes that occur during a massage and how they benefit your health as well as your developing baby,
  • Pregnancy massage prepares you for an easier delivery. 

  • It stimulates glandular secretions, stabilizing your hormonal levels and making their side effects less severe.

  • The draining effect of massage facilitates reduction of swelling of the extremities. Massages to the legs can control varicose veins.

  • Maternity massage in Brisbane increases blood circulations to all areas of your body, including the placenta. This brings greater nutrition to the tissues of the body and enhances waste product removal.

  • Lazy red blood cells lining the vessel walls are reintroduced into circulation, thus increasing the red blood cell count, this is vital for women suffering from anemia. Increase in red blood cell count also eliminates fatigue, since more oxygen carrying hemoglobin is released into the bloodstream. 

  • Massage can greatly reduce the strains on muscles of the lower back, abdomen and shoulders. As your pregnancy advances to its final trimester, this relief will be most welcome. 

  • Pregnancy massage sedates the nervous system, producing much needed rest and relaxation. In utero, your baby feels the same way. Frazzled nerves are soothed and insomnia can be relieved.

The Right Stage for Prenatal Massage

Some doctors never recommend massage in the first trimester, but encourage it in the second and third. Some contend that all stages of pregnancy are good times for massage. If you’re only going to indulge once, then you should wait until your growing uterus and belly swells and causes pain. However, if you have the time, inclination, and budget to take care of yourself in this way, pregnancy massage has been cited as being beneficial at all stages of pregnancy.

Note: Always be sure to speak up and tell your therapist if you feel hot, cold or uncomfortable, if the stroke is too strong or not strong enough, or if you’re not feeling well for any reason during massage.

Along with the above benefits, mother massage also includes herbal remedies, nutritional information, and exercises and postures as part of its holistic scope of pregnancy health care.

Inertia Massage

Day Spa, what does it really mean? No idea! Day spa can vary according to the sources. Some experts consider day spas to be only a step above beauty salon and describe it as a center for personal care treatments accentuating the physical and esthetic aspects involved in a visit. But in real, day spa in Brisbane is both a facility and service. Its purpose is to offer a variety of specific therapies and treatments common to traditional spas. These may include things as massage, face and body treatments, certain exercise regimes and a variety of professional spa products.

Types of services offered by Day Spa

Massages: These popular forms of relaxation come in a wide range of types that include Swedish and Deep tissue, Chinese massage etc… Day spa also offer other common or less common massages such as California massage, Hot stone massage, Polarity and so forth. Aromatherapy massages that involve scented towels, which are applied to the neck and face, are also quite popular. Day spas using aromatherapy as a major component of its branding will often have a signature scent.

Body Treatments: This is another staple at day spas. The treatment includes body scrubs and wraps, body toning, hand & foot care heat treatments and more.
  • Body Wrap – As with full body massage in Brisbane, you’ll likely find a number of different body wrap options, the most popular is the herbal body wraps. Herbal body wraps involve the use of warm, scented towels that are tightly wrapped around the body.
  • Body Scrubs – This is an ideal way to clean the skin and make you look young again. In most day spas, body scrubs use sea salts, which are used to exfoliate the body. A strong exfoliation will remove the top dead layer of your skin.
Face treatments: Few day spas resemble beauty salons and as a result, they offer certain services focusing on improving the beauty and condition of the face. Such a day spa also provides cleansing facial cosmetics, electrical toning, laser hair removal, make up consultation and more.

Water treatments: Today, not all day spa offer water treatments. It is a popular option to relax in a bathtub. Although this sounds like something that you can do at home, much more is involved. You can have the option of listening soothing music or lighting a few candles, choose aromatic seaweed, aroma oil etc…

Nutritional Counseling or Weight Management: Similar to water treatments, nutritional counseling is rarely offered in day spas nowadays. As for what you can expect, a counseling on weight control including a look at what a client eats and why. It can be holistic in its approach.

Other services include foot treatments, yoga, Pilates and similar forms of exercise. The service or signature services of a day spa may be more specialized. Some day spas in Brisbane provide you specific forms of the above types of services whereas others will concentrate on one area. Whatever, you can find the desired treatment in almost every day spa.

Throwing the right party is important for giving any girl the best birthday possible, and a princess party is sure to make any girl feel special on her big day. Pampering is a great source of relaxation to adults as well as children, and a local kids party in Brisbane can use the services of a mobile spa such as Inertia Massage to create a safe and comfortable mini day spa for girls aged 4-12 and a number of special friends.

The parties offer equal pampering to make sure every guest has the same opportunity for any beauty service they would like. The services are all child safe and great for letting every girl at the party feel like royalty. After a pampering party, kids will leave happy and be sure to talk about the party much later, excited for another birthday to roll around so they can attend another party.

All girls at the party can take home their very own favours, which include a craft beading kit and a choice of other small favours. The birthday girl receives a lovely feather boa and a beautiful princess tiara to remind her of her exciting spa party.

Mobile princess parties come in plenty of different themes and with different services, including simple mini manicure parties and complicated ultimate parties with tons of options in between. Even the most basic packages include service such as manicures and pedicures with full service buffing and colourful polish application, while the complex parties include even more.

Some pampering parties come armed with glittery makeup and bright colours, allowing every guest to choose her favourite girly colours and sparkly shadows, blushes and glosses to make herself feel like a real princess.
Ultimate packages include chocolate facial parties with hand moisturizers, gentle massages and fun scented masks. Every party finishes up with a great game of Singstar Karaoke, a favourite among girls and a must-have party game.

Since these parties are often so complex, having the party with a mobile spa makes it possible to simplify planning and widen the range of possible times and dates, as well as location.

You may have heard someone mention a pregnancy massage and not know what exactly it is. There are many pregnant women who are getting these, and they swear by them. These can be done at many spas. Women who go to have this done will find that there are many benefits.

One benefit of this is that they have a balance in their hormones. This can reduce the swelling that many pregnant women have. Those who experience nerve pain find that they have a reduction of it as well. This can relieve the pain in many areas such as the joints, back, muscle tension, and more. It can also relax them so that they don't have as much stress.

Since you are carrying a baby, massage therapists will have you get undressed and lie on your side. You want to be sure that when you are looking for a place that has this, the person that is going to assist you with this has the proper credentials. They will look for the pressure points that are sensitive as there are some things that have to be considered and if they aren't careful, they could hurt you. They will go deep, but they will assist with getting all the right areas. This works much like a regular massage, but they work on the points to where you are most prone to having pain and so forth.

Now, there are a few people who should not have this done. This is not for women who have a lot of swelling or have high blood pressure. Women who have a high risk pregnancy shouldn't do this either. Those women who are at risk of going into early labor or who have preeclampsia should reconsider having this done as well. Those who are in their first trimester should avoid a pregnancy massage as well. This is due to the heightened risk of miscarriage.

When your muscles have had an injury or when tension has built up in your body over a long period, you may find the art of remedial massage is exactly what you need to help your muscles recover and regain their health. This kind of targeted, deep tissue massage will stimulate healing by increasing blood flow to the muscles that have been hurt.

Sometimes, you know you injured yourself because of a precipitating event that was immediately followed by pain. It could have been any number of common injuries that can damage your shoulder, back or other vulnerable areas. Other times, you do not notice any injury at all; you simply start to lose mobility a bit more over time. Perhaps you are not using proper body mechanics or taking regular breaks while performing repetitive actions at work or home. It might even be as simple as having too many stressful days in a row and storing that tension in various parts of your body, such as your shoulders or your neck.

Regardless of why your muscles are sore or injured, these kinds of injuries can greatly interfere with your quality of life. You may have trouble sleeping or be unable to do certain activities. You could also be suffering from regular headaches that impede your ability to focus at work and at home.

In most cases, a remedial massage can relieve these and similar pains. It can even speed the healing process so you can reclaim your lost motility. A remedial massage is a deep tissue muscle manipulation that specifically focuses on the injured areas. It is often performed with oils, which are applied directly to the skin to facilitate greater penetration and release of accumulated tension. The oils and the focused pressure to the tensed muscles increase blood flow and help your muscles to relax and heal. These effects are heightened when combined with a relaxing atmosphere, calming aromas, and soothing sounds.

Many people who have suffered from sore or damaged muscles have found relief with remedial massage, often within the first session. As their bodies healed, they found themselves able to reclaim the lost pleasures of their lives. If you would like to experience the wonders of a remedial massage for yourself, contact us today!

Body wraps are meant to unclog pores and generally will enhance the tone of the skin overall, and getting body wrap is a perfect way for complete relaxation and to allow the ingredients contained in the wrap to help you feel more refreshed and stimulated.

Inertia also offers a warm chocolate body wrap that makes the most of cocoa beans. This body wrap is rich in antioxidants to flush out the skin cells and encourage skin cell renewal. This body wrap offers superior hydration of the skin as well as wholesome nutrients leaving you feeling absolutely rejuvenated and invigorated.

When Valentine's Day rolls around, you don't want to just come home from work and do chores--you want it to be special.

Once you have settled on a day, you can plan an itinerary. 

For instance, you could go out in the morning and pick up roses from the local florist, buy some chocolates from a good chocolatier like Mayfield or Chocolate to Die For, and come home and indulge in a couples massage in the afternoon. Once you have thoroughly relaxed and enjoyed yourself, you can get dressed up, call a taxi, and set off for a romantic candlelit dinner at a restaurant of your choice. After a wonderful dinner, you can come home, savour the chocolates and curl up in front of a fire or a good film to finish off your Valentine's Day. 

A couples massage can make an otherwise average Valentine's Day complete. Whether you choose to plan a romantic day or just stay in and lounge, a massage in the comfort of your own home can relax you and help you enjoy the holiday with the one you love.
