Massage involves working the soft tissue of the body, to ease day-to-day stresses and muscular tension, and promote relaxation. It helps to increase delivery of blood and oxygen to the treated areas and can also be used in support of other therapies to assist in the rehabilitation of muscular injuries. Studies have shown that massage during pregnancy and labour reduces the need for epidural pain relief and birth by caesarean section.
This therapy is deeply relaxing and tailored to meet your needs at each stage of pregnancy. You will be supported into a side-lying position during the massage and a selection of techniques including Swedish, manual lymphatic drainage, passive joint movements, deep breathing and visualisations can be used to alleviate stress and tension along with any other symptoms of pregnancy that you find difficult to cope with.
Essential oils that are safe for use in pregnancy can be incorporated into the massage.
All appointments include a holistic health and wellbeing consultation to create a bespoke treatment plan.
