An innovative new treatment is about to nourish the newly pregnant woman in the UK. For the fist time, there is a credible hot and cold stone Pregnancy and Post Labour treatment available.

Pregnancy massage has been around for a while now, but the difference with this treatment is that it uses temperature and stones to help alleviate those all too ghastly symptoms. There is a list as long as your arm as to why a therapist needs to approach their client with the upmost caution, however the main areas of concern are associated with DVT and overheating due to hormonal changes and increase in blood supply.

Usually most women will suffer some kind of condition during Pregnancy. The most common case is back pain, sacroiliac pain, piriformis syndrome or other musculoskeletal pain. Hormones also relax ligaments and can lead to possible joint misalignment. Other discomforts during Pregnancy are Oedema and Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. Now, being massaged with hot and cold stones, Women can get amazing benefits from the temperature being supplied by the stones. For example, heat immediately relaxes and relieves muscle spasm, carpal and myofascial pain and relieves stress from the weight-baring joints; whilst cold relieves pain, reduces water retention, stimulating the lymph function and reduces inflammation around the joints.

To give you a typical treatment example, let's take one of the most common conditions, Piriformis Syndrome. This is a compression syndrome of the Sciatic nerve, the largest nerve in the body. The Sciatic nerve passes through the greater Sciatic Foramen, usually passing deep and inferior to the Piriformis muscle. This muscle is deep in the buttocks and is small but it provides a lot of work for the Pelvis and becomes very sore and tender during pregnancy. In a typical stone treatment, the woman lies in side line, and the therapist will work on the thigh and sacral area, with alternating hot and cold stones with a particular technique which releases the muscles around the pelvic and gives the Sciatic nerve and blood vessels space to recover. The massage is not deep and is not long, therefore the client will not fatigue.

JSS will only teach professional, qualified stone therapists. Research has been on-going now for the past seven years and countless women have experienced this treatment to provide JSS with the knowledge required to present it as one of their leading treatments.

All therapists wanting to learn this treatment will be taught how to provide emotional support to a mother through the full term of pregnancy, learning what exactly happens during this period, how to take blood pressure; cover high risk pregnancy & contra-indications, hormonal changes, relevant anatomy & pathology, advanced stone massage techniques and post-labour recovery plus much more.
