Pregnancy & Postnatal Massage

What is pregnancy massage?

Pregnancy massage is a safe and effective treatment that may help to support and relax you, your partner and baby during this physically and emotionally transitional time. Pregnancy massage as with pregnancy is similar to holistic massage as I will tailor the treatment to suit you and through a consultation make sure the treatment is safe and effective. Depending on where you are in your journey to pregnancy, pregnancy or within the post natal period, the massage will be adjusted with pillows, positions, pressure and use of relevant oils or it can be experienced over clothes. I can also suggest stretches and exercises which can be incorporated in to the massage or as home care suggestions. I trained with Suzanne Yates www.wellmother.org  – do visit this site for some great prenatal and labour resources.

Pre conception benefits:

Holistic massage, aromatherapy massage and reflexology could help to ease tension and anxiety, address Musculo-skeletal problems, balance the hormonal cycle and help with stress related conditions.

Pregnancy massage benefits:

As with regular massage, pregnancy massage could help to relieve muscular and skeletal tension, aches and pains often experienced through the neck and shoulders, back and pelvic area which could become exasperated as your baby develops. Massage could help with improving your general wellbeing, energy levels and relieving headaches, moderate water retention, anxiety, mood swings and insomnia.

Some essential oils maybe used during your pregnancy and they can be beneficial for many of the above symptoms as well as nausea, digestive discomfort, stretch marks and preparing for the arrival of your baby. I can blend massage oils, oils for home use and also suggest ways of using them safely and effectively.

Post natal massage: Great for bouncing back

Choosing to have a massage after the birth of your baby can be restorative on many levels as your body recovers and you adjust to your new member of the family. I can offer mobile treatments if this is more convenient at this time and you can experience the massage with your baby. Many clients have found this a bonding and relaxing experience for both Mother and baby or allowing time just for you in the treatment can also be of great benefit physically and emotionally.

‘The treatments were very tailored to my needs and also more varied than expected. The fact there was reflexology, massage, head massage and advice on exercise and relaxation techniques was hugely helpful as it meant that the treatments were much more effective.’

‘It is really helpful to have the flexibility of being able to have a treatment with or without my baby.’
