Tired of being tired?
Pregnancy massage therapy can help relieve back pain, hip pain, swollen legs, trouble sleeping, and general aches and pains.
“I was completely exhausted while pregnant with my firstborn. Sandra made sure I was comfortable through the whole session and made me feel so much better!”
Being pregnant is exhausting isn’t it??
Pregnancy massage can help relieve tension, help you sleep better and feel less stressed, and improve circulation to reduce swelling.
But getting a massage when you’re pregnant (like everything when you’re pregnant) needs a little more thought.
Need to Know#1
You need a massage therapist who is specially trained in pregnancy massage. Why? Becasue some styles of massage can induce labour. I’m no midwife, so I’ve specially trained so that won’t happen.
Need to Know#2
You can’t have a massage in your first trimester.
I’m here to help in your second or third trimester.
Keeping you comfortable
Since you can’t lie on your stomach, you’ll lie on your side (propped up with cushions for comfort), sit down or stand against a wall.
Whichever position you find the most comfortable, we’ll do.
How does it work?
Book yourself in for a 30-, 45- or 60-minute session
This gives you the flexibility to make your massage work around your working day or your other time or budget considerations.
Enjoy your massage therapy.
Before we get started, we’ll find out how you’re feeling to make sure nothing has changed since you filled out the consultation form.
Leave feeling better than when you arrived
We’ll have targeted your key pain areas, working the muscles to undo knots and relieve tension on your joints.
If you repeat the same behaviours that led to your pain, you’ll not get better. It’s why I’ll give you stretches to perform or tips on how to avoid the same pain happening again in the future.
What massage therapies will we typically do?
I’ll use a blend of three/four techniques in our session to target and ease your pain. Click below to learn more about them.
One-off massages may temporarily help your pain, but they’re no replacement for regular massages – that’s why I offer massage memberships (at discounted rates).
