This will depend on the type of treatment you are seeking to support your health/wellbeing goals.
Anything related to the menstrual cycle can take a minimum of 3 months to see an improvement. This is because it takes around 3 months (90-100 days) for an egg to fully prepare for release at ovulation. Monthly treatments are recommended after an initial two treatments for the first month. After the first 6 months treatment window, treatments can reduce to 2-3 monthly or as desired. It is better not to receive treatment while you have your period, especially if pain is an issue for you at this time in your cycle.
Monthly treatments, after your period but before ovulation/embryo transfer is ideal. For optimum results consider commencing treatments at least 3 months before trying to conceive, 6 months is even better! It’s also never too late to start, no matter where you are in your journey I would absolutely be honoured to support you.
Regular pregnancy massage can help ease normal pregnancy symptoms and discomforts as well as help prepare your body for birth. Monthly treatments throughout pregnancy with 1-2 treatments per week for the last month or so, or as needed.
For best results you should have 2-4 treatments to help support you in your fourth trimester and ease any leftover pregnancy/birth discomforts. This is also a great way to ease the discomforts of learning to breastfeed. Postnatal treatments are a popular reason for home visits, with your baby close and all of their things nearby. If you’ve had a caesarean section birth you can still enjoy a postnatal massage, just obtain a medical clearance (in writing) from your doctor or wait until 6 weeks.
Most larger scars will require around 6 treatments, usually due to the number of layers involved in the scar. Small changes are noted after the first 2-3 treatments with the most noticeable changes occurring around the fourth/fifth treatment. Treatments can be as frequent as weekly.
