Self-Care Massage After Miscarriage: The Benefits of Incorporating Massage into Your Healing Journey

Self-Care Massage After Miscarriage: The Benefits of Incorporating Massage into Your Healing Journey

Hey there, mama. Let’s talk about something that’s rarely spoken about yet silently affects so many – miscarriage. It’s a storm of emotions, a physical rollercoaster, and a journey that leaves you feeling completely drained. And while we all know healing takes time, sometimes it feels like your body just needs a helping hand. That’s where self-care massage comes in, like a warm hug for your hurting soul and a gentle nudge for your physical recovery.

Why massage after miscarriage, you ask? Well, imagine your body as a tightly wound knot, tangled with grief, aches, and the remnants of what could have been. Self-care massage is like a skilled untangler with soft, soothing strokes. It works its magic on several levels:


  • Improve Pain and Muscle Tension

Grief, stress, and physical discomfort can all knot up your muscles, leaving you feeling tight and achy. Gentle massage strokes stimulate blood flow to your muscles, delivering fresh oxygen and nutrients needed reducing tension. This can significantly reduce pain perception and leave you feeling calmer and more comfortable.

  • Shrink and Reposition Uterus

Your uterus has grown and stretched generously to accommodate your pregnancy. With the pregnancy ending, it naturally begins to shrink back to its pre-pregnancy size. A gentle massage with an herbal hot compress can help stimulate this process by encouraging blood flow and discharge of lochia. This can help your uterus to shed any remaining tissue and contract more effectively. Sometimes, after a miscarriage, the uterus can settle slightly off-centre. Massage can help encourage your uterus to settle back into its optimal position by relaxing the surrounding muscles and ligaments. This can help improve comfort and prevent potential issues with future pregnancies.

  • Firm Up and Tone Muscles

Pregnancy stretches everything, and your postpartum tummy might feel a little “out of sorts” after a miscarriage. Remember, this is completely normal! By gently kneading and stimulating your core muscles, you’re actually helping them remember their pre-pregnancy strength. As they get stronger, they’ll start to pull everything in a little tighter, making your tummy feel more firm and supported. Stronger core muscles provide better support for your back, improve your posture, and help prevent any long-term issues like diastasis recti (separation of the abdominal muscles).

  • Soothe Headaches and Blurry Vision

The hormonal fluctuations can trigger migraines, tension headaches, and even temporary vision changes. Incorporating a special herbal blend called pilis can further enhance your self-care massage after a miscarriage. Here’s where the “wind” factor comes in. Traditional Chinese medicine views “wind” as an imbalance in the body’s energy flow, often associated with headaches, dizziness, and blurry vision. With their aromatic and stimulating properties, Pilis is believed to help dispel this excess wind, bringing clarity and easing these uncomfortable symptoms.

  • Reconnecting with Your Body

The echo of loss can numb your senses, disconnecting you from your physical self. This massage is an invitation to come home to your body, to rediscover its whispers of strength and resilience. Feel the gentle pressure, the way it cradles your pain, your body whispering, “It’s okay. You are worthy.” Remember, self-compassion isn’t about ignoring your pain; it’s about holding yourself with kindness and understanding. So, as you lie there, bathed in the quiet comfort of the massage, allow yourself to receive physical relief and a deep well of self-compassion. You are strong, you are worthy, and you are loved.

  • Embracing Mindfulness

As your therapist kneads and strokes your muscles, your focus naturally shifts inward, encouraging mindfulness. This allows you to step back from the whirlwind of thoughts and simply observe them without judgment. This act of mindful observation can create space for acceptance and release negative thought patterns. It can be a powerful act of self-love and self-care, fostering acceptance and helping you move forward with a renewed sense of hope and resilience.

Closing Thoughts

There are days when the world feels blurry, the pain a constant echo. But you are strong, resilient, and yes, worthy of every ray of hope that peeks through the clouds. Self-care massage isn’t just about physical relief. It’s a whispered promise to yourself: I see you, I hear you, and I’m here for you. Take your time, mama.
