Pregnancy Massage

Pregnancy is a life altering experience for each expectant mother. With the many changes occurring in her body, physically and emotionally, she will be in need of the nurture and support that aromatherapy massage can provide.

 

Aromatherapy Massage offers a chance for Mums-to-Be to snuggle up with comfy pillows while being gently massaged with safe and supportive strokes. Many years of experience and professional training allow the perfect treatment to be given at each stage of pregnancy.

 

An advice service is also available for oils to use during labour and after the birth.

First Trimester Massage

Gentle strokes, without essential oils may help you to:

  • Settle your body in early pregnancy.

  • Manage your feelings about your pregnancy

  • Find a place for some essential relaxation

  • Certain Essential Oils, under guidance, may be useful for nausea and vomiting

After 12 weeks, a safe dilution of essential oils is used as you lie comfortably tucked up for your massage. This may help with:

  • Easing muscular aches

  • Addressing sleep issues

  • Relieve heartburn

  • Depression and anxiety

  • Poor circulation

  • Oedema/swelling

  • Cramp

  • Constipation/Diarrhoea

Third Trimester Massage

Supported in a side-lying position, using appropriate oils, aromatherapy massage may:

 

  • Reduce stress on weight baring joints

  • Release oxytocin into the body

  • Manage oedema and swelling in the joints

  • Towards the end of your pregnancy help to prepare your body for the birth

Postnatal Massage

Once you feel ready for a massage after the birth of your baby you can begin to:

  • Recover from the birth

  • Ease your aches and pains, (lifting baby and feeding)

  • Get some precious me-time
