Specialised Pregnancy Massage

 

Deborah Jenkins

Pregnancy is such a wonderful and almost magical time in a woman’s life as she becomes part of the miracle of a new life forming!

However, for most it also comes with a few (or more) challenges. As your body goes through some massive changes to accommodate the new life growing inside of you it can at times put a real stress on you.

Pregnancy massage is a specialised form of massage that addresses the various aches and pains common in pregnancy. It can help with:

  • SPD symptoms
  • Tension in shoulders
  • Lower back ache
  • Restless, tired or slightly swollen legs
  • Headaches
  • Insomnia and sleep disturbances
  • General aches and pains

What it entails

Half body – 45 mins

We start off with you side lying on the massage table nestled in with various pillows for maximum comfort. Then I work one half of the back from neck to hip with gentle but firm techniques. I also work the arm before rolling you over to repeat the same on the second side.

Full body – 90 mins

Starts off the same as the half body but we also work each leg while laying on each side. After both sides we move you to a reclining position again nestled into various cushions for comfort. I massage both feet, followed by work on shoulders and neck. Finally we do a facial massage followed by a relaxing scalp massage to finish off.

Usually at this point women declare they don’t ever want to leave the massage table!
