During pregnancy your body is growing, changing and adapting all the time to the new little person or people inside you. Sometimes full of energy, sometimes achy and sore; any time is a great time to feel pampered and renewed. Your body is working hard, so you deserve some time out! Let me help take the strain and tension away from your muscles with Back Massage or Full Body Massage, so you can enjoy this time more peacefully.
Pregnancy treatments are not offered on the usual massage couch but on a specially created shiatsu-style massage mat, to allow full freedom of movement and the ability to just flake! As massage is offered with you lying on your side (and back, if allowable), there is no concern for pressure on the tummy area. This massage was developed from shiatsu techniques that specifically target problem areas during pregnancy, and is enhanced with the use of specially created oil blends from lovely folk at Motherlylove.
For a short and direct treatment, the pregnancy back massage works gently but deeply to soothe the areas of the back that are causing you discomfort, this treatment is adapted each session to the changing stress on the muscles from the neck right down to your lower back. In a short space of time, you will find you have more movement and less tension where it matters most. You’ll be amazed how much more relaxed you will feel, even after only half an hour!
If you are looking for an hour of pure bliss, the pregnancy full body massage uses soothing techniques working gently into the muscles and skin, reaching all the points of tension which are causing you discomfort, from aching back to aching legs and swollen ankles, also helping to smooth out and reduced the appearance of stretch marks. Combined with stretches and movements to help free up any lower back tension, by the end you will feel calmer and more relaxed, ready to float off to your next destination.

Please note: If at any time during your pregnancy you are or have been under specific medical supervision for any problems, it is advisable, as a precaution, to check that your midwife or GP is happy for treatment to go ahead. This is not usually a problem as the treatments are very gentle and relaxing, but it is best to be sure.
