Similar to normal massage, but tailored to mother & child.
Pregnancy massage is similar to a normal massage however the main difference is that the massage techniques used in pregnancy are adapted to maintain the wellbeing of the mother and child.
Techniques vary from firmer massages to relieve discomfort, or softer massages to help relax the expectant mother.
The massage is also conducted with the client laid on their side ‘hugging’ a full length body pillow. We work on one side of the body first, then roll the client over to complete the massage on the other side.
If the client needs to get up at any point for comfort during the massage then time is always allowed for this.
Baby massage classes are also available to book – Baby massage is a fantastic way for parents and carers to bond with baby and can benefit both baby and the person conducting the massage. It has been known to help calm a destressed baby and ease stomach discomfort (especially during weaning!) plus there is research to suggest it can help with Post Natal Depression. If you would like to know more about the 1-1 classes or book a group session then please get in touch.
Please note a full consultation is completed before any treatment is conducted.
