Massage in pregnancy can be hugely beneficial, not only for the mother, but for the unborn baby too.
It is an amazing privilege as a therapist to give a pregnancy massage. Every woman has a different experience of pregnancy and your body changes faster than at any other time in your life.
Massage can be given from 12 weeks to gestation. The massage can be performed lying on your tummy, if comfortable to do so until 16 weeks, or in a side lying position. The least compromising and most comfortable way to be massaged during pregnancy, is using the Hydrotherm system lying on warm water filled cushions ergonomically positioned, to suit your stages of pregnancy).
It is important to complete a full consultation, prior to treatment, as some conditions in pregnancy, may restrict a massage treatment being given. You may need to consult with your Midwife or GP, to seek permission prior to treatment, if you have any complicating factors or illnesses. I will happily provide you with advice and information, once I am in receipt of your consultation form.
