What is unique about the Pregnancy Massage treatment we offer?
We offer a bespoke prenatal treatment that blends traditional massage therapy techniques with Shiatsu and Reflexology. Massage strokes are combined with gentle stretches, specific pregnancy pressure points and energy work. Thanks to this box of many great tools, we are able to really tailor the treatment to your changing needs and then adapt it as your body changes throughout pregnancy.
Why choose Pregnancy Massage & Reflexology?
The treatment aims to help both:
Women who are not experiencing any particular problem, but love to feel connected to their bodies and their growing baby
Women who are at their 38 weeks of pregnancy or over and are looking for a natural remedy to promote labour induction.
WHAT ARE THE MAIN BENEFITS OF OUR SPECIALISED PREGNANCY MASSAGE THERAPY?
Fluid retention and oedema (swelling) in the arms and legs. We combine pregnancy reflexology with specific lymphatic drainage massage techniques to improve the flow of both the blood and lymph.
Insomnia: Relaxation can improve sleep and raise endorphins, the so-called "happy hormones". Our specialised pregnancy massage treatment is extremely calming, thus it can effectively help you to restore a healthy sleep pattern and feel restored & rejuvenated in the morning.
Anxiety, pregnancy depression or other negative emotions.
Relaxation is key when you are preparing for childbirth. Research into the progression of labour has shown that stress can not only impede a steady delivery but also increase pain. Pregnancy massage is a safe and incredibly relaxing treatment, both for mums-to-be and their babies, which is another good reason to choose it!

Natural Labour Induction (from +38 weeks of Pregnancy).

Acupressure & Reflexology for labour induction is a specialised form of Pregnancy Massage therapy which focus on helping pregnant women to prepare the body for childbirth, promoting uterine contractions and encouraging natural labour induction.
We are here to support you through this journey and offer you advice along the way, with an emphasis on both aftercare and self-empowerment. During each session, we will discuss your needs and advise you accordingly with stretches, breathing techniques and individual or partnered exercises.
