PREGNANCY

CONGRATULATIONS MAMA-TO-BE!

Would you like to know how pregnancy massage, reflexology and aromatherapy can support you during this special time? You’re in the right place!

Pregnancy is a time of momentuous change.  It can be a time of great happiness and contentment, but also one where your body is placed under increased strain.  Furthermore, you may also experience anxiety over how your life is changing and how you will adapt when baby is born.

As a mum of six, I know well the pleasures, but also the pains that pregnancy can bring.  It is this personal experience that is a drive behind my passion for supporting pregnant and postpartum women.

WHICH THERAPIES ARE BEST FOR ME?

No two pregnancies are the same and therefore the therapies that best support a mother-to-be are also not the same. During ‘Pregnancy Wellbeing’ appointments (60 or 90 minutes and packages) it is possible to blend therapies to create a treatment tailored to your unique needs. I recommend that a package of therapies is booked in order to maximise the potential benefits throughout your pregnancy.

Please note that massage is usually side-lying to take into account adjustments that need to be made to avoid lying you on your back.
