PREGNANCY MASSAGE

Available in all price packages

 

Pregnancy massage is available from 12 weeks onwards ~ right up until birth.

Pregnancy is a great joy….. but it is also a massive strain on a woman’s entire body: a true emotional and physical roller coaster!

The power of regular pregnancy massage throughout the child-bearing process can ease so many of the symptoms experienced during pregnancy; providing relief from aches and pains and everyday stresses, therefore improving the quality of the pregnancy experience. Massage can increase the health of both the mother and child and in some cases make the birth process easier.

Pregnancy massage improves the circulatory system; which promotes foetal health. It also increases the levels of feel-good hormones (endorphins) within the body – which is great for mum and baby!

As a certified and highly qualified massage therapist; holding an FHT Diploma in Pregnancy Massage, I understand the effects pregnancy has on a woman’s body. I can help her throughout her journey through pregnancy; working safely on her comfortably positioned body to alleviate aches and pains and promote relaxation using an exquisite combination of Swedish massage and Shiatsu techniques. As we progress through to the end of her pregnancy we can include her birthing partner within our sessions; showing them how they can support her through the birthing process by using massage and her breathing techniques.

The ultimate package includes pregnancy reflexology:

Women who actively choose to receive regular reflexology during pregnancy have been shown to gain a degree of relaxation that indirectly impacts on their developing fetus. (Motha & Mc Grath 1993)

What Our Clients Say

  • I have been going to the gym for several years now. I’m in my mid fifties and every so often I seem to injure myself for one reason or another. I end up having to take time out from the gym until I recover. One nagging problem I had for about two years, before meeting Sally, was Golfers elbow. I had been to the Doctors a few times regarding this problem, and I was told to wear a Tennis /Golfer Elbow support strap and stay away from weights in the Gym. But when I met Sally and she told me she could help, I thought I would give it a try. Well, if I’d have known Sally could relieve the pain in just a few massages I would have gone to her a lot sooner. I wish the Doctor had told me to get help rather than fobbing me off with a couple of useless suggestions. I’m now a regular at Sally’s, she just seems to know what is needed for whatever I go to see her about, I now go for prevention massages rather than wait until I’m injured, Sally will recommend stretches to prevent future problems when she notices tight muscles. Sally gives a very relaxing, unhurried massage. Every time I see her, she is so professional and knowledgeable, and her room is so relaxing with the soft music and oil diffuser fragrances. Sally is also very easy to get on with. I would recommend Sally to anyone and in fact I already have, to more than a few.

  • A fantastic experience from online booking through to the after service. Not only do you get one of the most robust, targeted and non-hurried massages going (I have the remedial sessions), but there's lots of science stuff to go with it. So when you have an ache, you don't just get a knot worked on, you get a proper explanation of what's going on with your posture to create it in the first place, a look at an iPad app with photos of posture and detailed background, then a massage focussed on that issue, as well as some exercises emailed home afterwards so that you try and fix what the issue was over the long term. Plus the room itself is really lovely, modern and relaxing, and Sally is a very welcoming, skilled practitioner. Can't think why you'd want to get a massage anywhere else!

  • I have been seeing Sally for about 8 months. When I first came I was getting headaches all the time. My neck, shoulders and back were always tight and painful, it was really bad. Sally is fantastic, she got rid of so many knots in my neck and shoulders. I feel so much better and my headaches have virtually gone. I used to take Paracetamol a lot of the time, now I hardly use them. I see Sally once a fortnight and it’s the best thing I do for myself.
    Keely McGough
  • I immediately felt at ease when I visited for the first time. Sally is very skilled at remedial massage and acupuncture. She took a lot of time to understand the problem and give the treatment. I started to feel the benefits the next day and had further improvements after each session. I would thoroughly recommend Sally.

    Carol Leak

  • I've suffered for a number of years with lower back, neck and shoulder pain taking stronger pain killers over time. A work colleague recommended Sally and the remedial massage she offers. I couldn't believe how much pain had been relieved after the first treatment on my lower back. I could bend and pick goods off the bottom shelf of a supermarket, something I struggled with a week before. Three sessions on my neck and shoulder followed, relieving so much pain from that area - I can actually look over my right shoulder without moving my whole upper body. A second session on my lower back has left me in such a good place now, far less pain and a good understanding of why the pain occurred i.e. bad posture. I'm recommending Sally to friends and family with muscle pain similar to mine. The whole experience is so friendly, relaxing, the scent, the music and the heated massage table. Pain killers no longer required.

    Steve Todd

  • I spend a lot of time in the gym and often my muscles feel wayyyy too tight. I could never find anyone to massage me deeply enough. That changed when I met Sally, she really knows how to make a grown man cry!! She works so deeply, it gets rid of all the aches & pains that really bug me. Afterwards I'm always freer and I can move again without hurting. I see Sally whenever I need help. I do recommend her to my friends.
