Pregnancy Massage

During this special  time of transition and change what we want from a massage may differ enormously from our usual needs. If we usually enjoy deep pressure and stretching (the latter is often found classic Thai Massage) we may find that we now simply want holding and nurture; a time and space to drop back into ourselves, as a woman, as mother-to-be, as 'me'.

We tailor each session individually for each woman as our experience in pregnancy is so very different. Having lived the experience of pregnancy and natural childbirth myself, as a therapist I am able to offer you a treatment with a deep understanding of what your needs might be.

 

Sessions are either 1 hour or 90 minutes long

Pregnancy Thai Massage is given mostly in the side position,

with pillows and bolsters placed to give support to the body where it most needs it - for example, under the belly, keeping the hips in alignment. 

We concentrate on opening up the energy body through sensitive work on the Sen (energy) lines. Gentle stretches are included where appropriate to oxygenate muscles and increase flexibility, open joints, lungs, diaphragm and ribcage. 

Benefits Include:

  • Deep relaxation and emotional holding through nurturing touch

  • Soothes and relaxes the nervous system by releasing endorphins into the body 

  • Improves blood circulation, encouraging the return of blood to the heart and increasing blood flow to the uterus and placenta

  • Improves breathing and eases nasal congestion

  • Maintains and improves posture and alignment during a time of rapid physical change

  • Eases stress on joints and improves flexibility and muscle tone

  • Promotes better sleep  

  • Offers a safe, drug-free alternative to pain relief during pregancy

Eases common discomforts found in pregnancy:

  • water retention in legs (edema)

  • fatigue

  • lower or upper back pain

  • shoulder tension or pain

  • constipation

  • heavy legs

  • sciatica

Post-Natal Massage

Thai Massage is also enormously beneficial post-partum.  

 

Benefits Include:

  • Helps to balance hormones and lift mood - it's very beneficial for those suffering post-natal depression 

  • Eases aching shoulders, arms and backs

  • Eases postural problems that can develop through breast feeding, carrying baby and or strange/ new sleeping postures 

  • Alleviates exhaustion and anxiety

  • Promotes good quality sleep and relaxation
