Pregnancy massage is a side lying massage which is comfortable for the client. I use a number of stretches to ease lower back and hip pain that are common during pregnancy. Receiving pregnancy massage also gives you the time and space to deeply relax and enjoy time with your baby and you can be rest assured you are perfectly safe in my hands, I’ve had the privilege of massaging many pregnant women. Regular pregnancy massage may be beneficial to women as it allows you to feel connected with your body and your baby. Pregnancy is a time of immense change, emotionally, physically and hormonally and pregnancy massage is just the ticket to help you feel balanced again and have some well deserved relaxation, especially if you have everyday stresses like work or other children to run after.

Benefits of pregnancy massage may include:
A reduction of stress hormones within a pregnant woman’s body. It also increases the levels of hormones which tend to be low in women who are depressed.
an improvement in general mood following a massage.
rejuvenation of their energy because massage gives them an opportunity to rest and completely relax.
For some pregnant women, massage may relieve nausea and heartburn.
Relief of everyday discomforts of pregnancy such as an aching neck, sore back, and heaviness in the pelvic bones, leg cramps, swelling of the ankles and feet and fluid retention (Oedema).
muscle relaxation and relief of joint pain.
Pregnancy massage may be helpful for women who experience sciatic nerve pain.
Building a feeling of connectedness with another person as well as building a rapport.
experiencing a change in their intimate relationship with their partner as some women suffer from being “touch deprived”.
providing an opportunity for women to completely stop what they are doing and focus on the pleasure of having someone else do something just for them.
Improvement of sleep due to feeling less muscle tension and increased comfort
