What is Pregnancy Massage?

Available from the second trimester a pregnancy massage can help reduce muscular tension, stress and anxiety by relaxing the body and mind.

This wonderfully relaxing treatment is carried out with you lying on your side bolstered by soft, comfortable pillows. The emphasis is on relaxation and whether you are working away from the home through your pregnancy or looking after older children, you deserve some 'me-time'.

Massage during pregnancy has many benefits, below are just a few:

* May improve your quality of sleep, many clients sleep during the massage and report back that

they have had a good night's sleep after their treatment.

* Muscular tension in the upper back, shoulders, lower back and hips can be eased.

* Improves blood circulation and distributes essential nutrients and fluid to all vital organs of the

body including the placenta.

* As your body relaxes your heart rate slows which can help lower blood pressure.

* Stimulates lymphatic drainage, this in turn may help reduce oedema (swelling) which can be a

contributory factor in carpal tunnel and tarsal tunnel syndrome.

Please allow 80 minutes for the pregnancy massage session - £56

This time allows for a consultation (at each appointment), a 70 minute massage and aftercare.
