Massage for Pregnancy and After

Massage for Pregnancy and After

Massage is a wholly natural treatment known to support deep relaxation, muscle easing, lymph drainage and healthier skin.  In your massage session I aim for you to experience a deeply restful sense of calm and nurture. During pregnancy this is highly beneficial to you and your baby and aids a focused body connection useful in labour. After the birth it supports you with the strains of being a new mother.

Types of Session Available:

Swedish Massage

For pregnant women, a two hour session allows for a side-lying, full body Swedish Massage based treatment, using plenty of pillows for support and ease. Techniques adapted for pregnancy may include kneading, stroking, some deep pressure and passive movements of joints. One hour or one and a half hours are possible to focus on part of your body, though the later on in pregnancy women are the more they tend to appreciate time to relax into lying one-side then the other and having some head to toe nurture.

Indian Head Massage

Indian Head Massage is a one hour session carried out sitting up. This involves back, shoulders, arms, neck, scalp and face, if wished. Again kneading, stroking and pressure may all be involved as well as some friction movements.

After the Birth

After your baby is born the seated Indian Head Massage may ease upper body strain, a full-body two hour Swedish Massage session may give you some much needed, head to toe, restful nurture, or a part body one hour or one and a half hour table based massage session may give ease where most required.

I use an oil of your choice to smooth the flow. Draping with a sheet or towels aids comfort.

Costs:

For 2 hour session: £60, £50 or £40
For 1 hour session:  £35, £30 or £25

Consultation and preparation are outside of the massage time and not charged for.

Charges are dependent on your family income and I am happy to discuss the level of cost with you.
