I'm not sure I'm posting in the right place...
Can anyone recommend a massage therapist in the Sydney's Inner West, Concord, Gladesville or Ryde areas? I'm after someone who will provide a decent remedial massage to someone who's pregnant. Not just a 'fluffy' waste of time & money pregnancy massage
Let me explain why I'm after such a massage while I'm pregnant. Prior to getting pregnant I suffered from migraines on a regular basis. I'd get them weekly and they'd knock me out for a few days. I was taking pain killers like they were smarties. Not good! Anyway, I tried various things and discovered that regular remedial massage fixed the problem. They got rid of the severe muscle tension in my back & hey presto, no more migraines. Now that I'm pregnant I can't find anyone who will give me a remedial massage. Pregnancy massage yes, but not with the pressure required to get rid of the knots in my back and neck. While it's very relaxing it's not what I need.
My migrants have now returned. I'm getting at least 2 per week. My OB has OKed the use of some pretty strong pain killers so I can cope with the pain but this is not a long term solution...it doesn't fix the problem. My OB also doesn't see any problem with me having a remedial massage. Surely it's better than throwing pain killers down my throat day after day.
I've tried acupuncture, chiropractor, osteopath, etc and none of it has worked and I can't keep throwing money after bad. I'm not saying these therapies don't work, they're just not working for me right now.
Oh! and I'm 15 weeks pregnant with twins! So this is only going to get worse if I stay on this path...a lot worse. Honestly, I'm starting to get scared I may never find a solution.
Please, if anyone has any recommendations or advice I'd greatly appreciate it.
