Pregnancy Massage

The Pregnancy Massage involves elongated flowing massage strokes that help improve circulation and can ease aches and pains during pregnancy. Recent studies have also shown massage helps to improve the health of the mother by lowering blood pressure. For our skilled practitioners to be able to conduct pregnancy massages, they have undertaken specialist training with an extensive knowledge of anatomy and physiology and obtained a high level of qualification to ensure treatment is safe for both mother and baby.

What to Expect

On the first visit, a case history will be conducted to attain information about the pregnancy, any symptoms the mother may be suffering from and general medical history. This enables our massage therapists to tailor make each session to the client’s individual needs and enables a suitable treatment plan to be devised.

Typically, the mum will lie on the treatment table supported by pillows, in either loose-fitting clothing or partly undressed (covered with towels). The practitioner uses oil, lotion or massage wax (all organic and of the highest quality available) and conducts long strokes, kneading techniques, deep circular movements and many more techniques to ensure the massage leaves them feeling relaxed, refreshed and at peace with the world.

Benefits of Pregnancy Massage

I really wish I had come to see Chantal sooner, it just shows that sometimes the answer is easier than you could possibly imagine.

I have suffered with continuous headaches for over 20 years, some of which lasted for 3 days or more and I was more or less resigned to the fact that I would have to put up with them for the rest of my days.

I find myself guilty of judging a book by its cover and in Chantal’s case this was a mistake. I made her aware at our first meeting that I was ‘anti doctor’ and highly sceptical of her chances of curing my headaches. However, she talked me into giving it a go and she was right. I have to say I am amazed!

This is an understatement really because just after 4 visits I have had only 2 headaches, only one of which was bad. I know that sounds a lot but in that time I would normally have suffered with a dozen or so. It has also helped my general mobility and has really improved my quality of life. Riding my bike has become a pleasure again and not a pain in the neck after 50 miles.

I really wish I had come to see Chantal sooner, it just shows that sometimes the answer is easier than you could possibly imagine.

I just want to say thank you. Somehow that does not seem enough but she really is a star! I will have no worries about recommending Chantal to my friends and hope she receives the recognition she deserves. She has my eternal respect and gratitude.
