Pregnancy is such an exciting time during your life, though unfortunately as your body changes aches and pains can develop. At Corio Bay Sports Treatment Clinic Colac, we have a team of massage therapists trained to help you through your pregnancy to ease these aches and pains.

Massage in pregnancy can involve many different techniques. It can vary from a well deserved relaxation massage to a remedial massage treatment to alleviate aches and pains that may arise. All treatments provided at Corio Bay Sports Treatment Clinic Colac are highly tailored to suit each individual client.

The benefits of pregnancy massage include a wide range of physiological, emotional and psychological benefits including:

  • Stimulating the lymph system, thereby increasing immunity and removal of toxins.


  • Helping to stabilize hormonal levels and help relieve depression or anxiety caused by hormonal changes.


  • Soothes and relaxes the nervous system by releasing endorphins. As a result an increased sense of relaxation and

    better sleep is achieved.
