Pregnancy is such a special time. The body undergoes so many changes during the nine months from conception to birth.
The changes are sometimes obvious; the baby bump or fluid retention in the later stages, sometimes not so obvious: such as varied hormone levels, sciatic pain and anxiety.
Pregnancy massage can help at all stages during the 9 months but it is especially beneficial as the birth approaches and the strain on the body increases. A gentle massage can ease fluid retention, calm nerves and help with sciatic pain.
A pregnancy massage is a wonderful way to treat an expectant Mum who will welcome the opportunity to feel pampered and relaxed before the birth of her child.
Although pregnancy massage can be beneficial at all times we do not recommend massage in the first trimester due to increased risk of miscarriage at this time.
What happens in a pregnancy massage
When you come along for your first session the therapist will ask you some questions about your health and what you hope to gain from your treatment. It is important to give as much detail as possible. After this consultation the therapist will leave the room so that you can undress and get comfortable on the treatment couch. Depending on the stage of your pregnancy you may have to lie on your side. If this is the case soft pillows will be used to help you to feel supported and comfortable. There will be towels to cover yourself with and the therapist will use these during the treatment to keep you covered and warm.
Our therapists are fully qualified, have professional indemnity insurance, are Police checked and members of a relevant professional body that requires them to undertake continuing professional development. They are extremely skilled in their therapies.
