    Hi, need some advice about post natal massage. Some of my friend told me that its good to have it but some said its not good. Is it true that after massage and binding it will cause your tummy to wrinkle up? Im already 36weeks preggy and going to be due soon. Hope i can get some advice asap. Cheers!

    Hi Cindy,

    so far no one tells me it is not good to have post-natal massage. My MIL, sister, friends and colleagues encourage me to engage one.

    My boss says that her uterus is 'dropping' and the massage lady help to push it back. The binding helps our hips to go back.

    But there are ppl who tells me to get qualifying ones. Some say malay massage ladies are better so it all depends on u. Hope this helps.

    Hi cindy,

    I had postnatal massage for both my baby after my delivery. Mostly all my office fren too had their postnatal sessions. You can feel more energetic and so relax after the massage. But must get experience ML to do it for you as that many therapists out there now a days. Get recommendations frm your frens. Mind done by traditional holistic postnatal centre as get gd feedback abt their service frm many mummies in these forum since many yrs back.

    I think jamu massage is necessary to shrink the overly-stretched stomach and expel out the wind.

    I engage the services of originsjamumassage during my first pregnancy and have engaged their services for my 2nd.


    good luck [IMG=http://www.singaporemotherhood.com/forumboard/clipart/happy.gif]

    Hi Mommies,

    May i know when can one start with the massage? My mom want me to go through 1mth confinement, without bathing. Wont the massage makes one feel sticky after that, since not allowed to bath?

    Also, it's normally for how many sessions, daily or weekly basis?

    Thanks for all the sharing!

    Just to share with mommies who are looking for massage ladies, I've been getting my post-natal massage from this lady (Mdm Aisah). I got her after I delivered my No.1 and now getting her to massage me after I delivered my No.2.

    I'm recommending her coz she's a really nice lady and has helped me relieve my engorged breasts (she saved my boobs again this time round). If you want to contact her, her hp no. is 81778092. I think her charges are a bit more than other massage ladies but she's really good. I paid $420 (or $60/session) for one week of massage. Each session is about 1hr - 1.5hr.

    She will massage the whole body and also do the wrap for your tummy area. You can see the effect after just 2 sessions.

    Vivienne - If you have natural delivery, you can start the post natal massage after a week. And yah, it does make you sticky after the massage coz they will use some oil to massage you. I bathe everyday, cannot take the heat :D My massage is for one week (7 days), once a day, 1hr - 1.5hr each time.

    All the best!

    hi where to buy the binder to use after delivery?

  27. tokyogal

    tokyogal Member

    I delivered via c-sect in mid-June. Been using the binder which I bought from my gynae (it's sold at Guardian Pharmacy too).

    Did massage with a Chinese lady, Xiaowei, (who was a Malaysian, now staying in Spore) from my third week after delivery. Her massage style was more of qi massage (tcm oriented). She was very detailed and explained every steps she did during the first 2 sessions. I was definitely more energised after the massage, and best thing of all, she solved my backache problem. One thing though, as she doesn't only do post-natal massage but also normal treatments, she's always fully booked. Also her charges are more expensive than many ($990 for 7 sessions) and I think it's money well-spent.

    6 weeks after my delivery, I tried out massage with another lady called Iris. Iris deployed tui-na technique coupled with traditional stomach binding. My stomach flattened after the massage sessions. Her charges are lower than the first massuer - she charges $80 for 1hr of homevisit.

    I am at my 3rd week after C-section.

    My gynae said I can do post-natal massage but must avoid the wound area. Otherwise, I have to wait for a month.

    I would like to ask if I engaged a massage lady now, would my tummy be slimmed down as she cannot massage the wound.

    Can anyone advise me?

    hi buffy

    sorry i did natural delivery so no idea. but all i can say is post-natal massage is very relaxing for me. i enjoyed every session. i like the breast massage best as i breastfeed, so massaging the breast reduced the tension on my precious boobs. haha...

    i will like to recommend babies bellies for post-natal massage. i was having bad engorgement on a fri night. my original massage lady could not come immediately, so i called babies bellies for faster action. though it was after their office hours, the lady who picked up was very kind to advise me on what to do to rid my engorgement. thereafter she allocated a massage lady called Maia to me.

    Maia was very skillful and i feel very comfortable during every massage session. i did 7 days package and though it is slightly more exp than freelance price. but i feel its worth it.

    I also use babbies bellies for my post natal massage. I would say be careful in choosing ur masseuse coz I did have a very bad one (unexperienced and happened to be a new hire) but I finally found one that I really like. Describe to them what kind of pressure you like - they will assign u a masseuse according to your massage preference. One more thing, make sure you ask if the masseuse is experienced (how long she's been doing massage). Usually the older the better...

    Btw, yes I think post-natal massage helped me in losing the baby weight.. I almost gained back my prenatal weight after 2 month naturally (no diet).

    cakhcakh New Member

    I highly recommend Kak Ida. She didnt watch time when she did her massage. My first session went on for 2.5 to 3 hrs. Subsequently 1.5 to 2 hr. Real value for money. Same like other, she does binding, massage but what i like abt her.. when she does this hot treatment to remove wind and water retention. And if you sign up 10 session, she will do the slimming massage for free. She not that calculative type. That i like abt her.

    You may reach her at 96552394.

    Bad experience with Kak Ida (96552394) service. Not punctual, appointment at 11am but only turn up at 1pm. Moreover, no sms or call to inform about the delay. Massage skill not good also.

    graceloh New Member

    Hi zodiacstar, I had my postnatal by traditional & holistic postnatal. They did jamu massage as my mum insist that my postnatal must with jamu applications. You may check if aunty jenny will did traditional jamu massage or just with oil.The process of jamu massage you may look frm the company website that I engage. jamumassage.com

  40. hi mummies - am recommending my massage lady for those who cannot stand too much 'heat'. her name is Liza and her number is 96412314. she's punctual, quiet (doesn't engage in idle chatter), pressure can be adjusted. her rates are $400 for 5 sessions, $700 for 10. she uses ginger oil and cream. the jamu is in the form of a tablet so good for those with sensitive skin. The only 'downside' was that i was expecting to sweat loads and smell like a ginger plant after every session - but i didn't. so i'm not sure if that's a good thing or not.

    Actually I am not sure properly about natal massage after delivery. But I can advice you to take a look at Aiasn massage West Palm Beach to get some info about your topic. It can be helpful to find out your answer.
