Combining your pregnancy with massage is ideal to allow a ‘holistic’ approach to your pre & post-natel care program at this special time.

‘I FELT SO RELAXED AFTER AND SO MUCH EASIER TO WALK WITHOUT MY HIPS ACHING’  C.H

As an experienced, fully insured and qualified Pregnancy Massage Therapist I provide massage for all three trimesters of pregnancy. Gestating a new human being, can be physically and emotionally tiring with various complaints arising such as lack of sleep, sciatic pain or shoulder aches etc… Pregnancy massage helps to support you as your body changes, increasing your overall well-being at this special time and as part of your pre-natel care.

BENEFITS OF MASSAGE

Pregnancy (Pre- & Post-natel) - massage has the following benefits:

Improved sleep

Regulating mood

Relieve fatigue

Release muscular aches & pains

Numerous studies has demonstrated pregnancy massage to be effective, especially a 2010 literature review in Expert Reviews in Obstetrics and Gynecology showing massage therapy decreased depression, anxiety, and leg and back pain in pregnant women, also indicating those in labor used less pain medication and had labors averaging three hours shorter than average.

WHAT TO EXPECT

We take a consultation, gaining information on your history and how your pregnancy has progressed so far; if your pregnancy is high risk, or you have complications, please feel free to contact me beforehand.

We generally adopt a side-lying position, from 20 weeks on, using a variety of props we adapt the body positioning; as your comfort is paramount during your treatment.

A wide variety of massage strokes may be used and advanced techniques such as myofascial work, neuromuscular trigger point work, active and passive stretching, rhythmic movement may be included to address symptoms of pain, especially in the pelvic and back areas.
