Service Description

I am trained in Pregnancy Massage at Gateway and advanced pregnancy massage at MamaBabyBliss, and have taken distance learning specialist modules with David Lobenstein (co-author of the world-leading text Pre and Perinatal Pregnancy Massage). Pregnancy massage shares many of the benefits of regular massages but is specifically tailored to the changing needs of women during the course of their pregnancy. A relaxing massage is a great way to treat yourself to a rare relaxing moment before your baby arrives, enjoy some pampering, tune into your body and calm your mind before giving birth. Benefits include: • Relieving physical & emotional stress. • Improving circulation • Relaxed and deeper breathing. • Pregnancy-related aches & pains • Stretch-mark prevention. • Reducing swelling and oedema in the hands, feet or ankles • Lessening sciatic pain. Studies done in the past 10 years have shown that when massage therapy was introduced to women’s prenatal care, hormone levels associated with relaxation and stress are significantly altered, leading to mood regulation and improved cardiovascular health. In women who received bi-weekly massages for only five weeks, hormones such as norepinephrine and cortisol (“stress hormones”) were reduced and dopamine and serotonin levels were increased (low levels of these hormones are associated with depression). These changes in hormone levels also led to fewer complications during birth and fewer instances of new born complications, such as low birth weight. Pregnancy massage is safe to receive from the second trimester of pregnancy. I consider that the best and safest position for a pregnant woman during massage is side-lying. Pillows and cushions are used during a pregnancy massage to support you and your baby. I use the Oakworks Sie-Lying system I won’t rush your pregnancy massage appointment because I know how important it is to feel calm, relaxed and cared for in a gentle way. I will allow an extra five minutes to ensure we tailor the massage to address your needs and concerns.
