PREGNANCY MASSAGE
LONDON

Nurturing Your London Pregnancy Journey with Expert Massage Therapy & Acupuncture

Welcome to your one-stop portal for everything you need to know about pregnancy massage in London!

 

Pregnancy in London can be full of excitement, challenges, and physical changes. While you're creating new life, your body faces aches, pains, and discomfort, as several changes occur in the body. These changes can cause discomfort and stress, especially when combined with stress factors such as work, family responsibilities, and financial issues. 

That's where pregnancy massage steps in to offer targeted relief and deep relaxation. Pregnancy massages can help relieve these symptoms and improve the mother's and baby's quality of life, especially if you are in chaotic London. 

WHAT IS A PREGNANCY MASSAGE?

A pregnancy massage is a particular type of massage therapy.

 

It aims to help expectant mothers throughout their pregnancy journey by addressing their unique physical and emotional needs.

It is a great complementary prenatal care option to get relief from common physical discomforts like lower back pain, sciatica, and swollen feet.

 

Since it is a very relaxing treatment, it also promotes a sense of calmness and emotional balance.

HOW DOES PREGNANCY MASSAGE DIFFER FROM REGULAR MASSAGE?

While Regular and Pregnancy massage both offer benefits such as relaxation and release of muscle tension, a prenatal massage therapist tailors the treatment specifically to the needs of the expecting mother.

 

In fact, several factors differ between the 2 treatments, such as:

  • Positioning: We take into account the comfort and safety of both the mother and the baby. Because of this, we provide extra pillows and bolsters to let expectant mothers relax in a side-lying position.

  • Techniques: We only use techniques catered to pregnant women, such as longer and gentler strokes than in a normal Deep tissue massage. Additionally, we use stretches and pressure point work for optimal results. While we avoid specific pressure points and techniques that may be contraindicated during pregnancy.

  • Focus: The session is tailored to accommodate the specific stage of pregnancy and the individual needs of the expectant mother. For example, many women around 20 weeks pregnant often experience lower back pain. This is because their bodies prepare for labour and release more relaxin, which can affect stability. Other common requests from our pregnant clients are relief from leg circulation issues and promoting a sense of calmness.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF A PRENATAL MASSAGE?

Why should you try pregnancy massage in London?

  • Fluid retention and oedema (swelling) in the arms and legs. We combine pregnancy massage with specific lymphatic drainage massage london techniques to improve blood flow and lymph.

  • Improved sleep: Relaxation can raise endorphins, the so-called "happy hormones". Our specialised pregnancy massage treatment is exceptionally calming. Thus, it can help you restore a healthy sleep pattern and feel restored and rejuvenated in the morning. 

  • Anxiety, pregnancy depression or other negative emotions. Relaxation is critical when you are preparing for childbirth. Research into the progression of labour has shown that stress can impede continuous delivery and increase pain. Our peaceful Pregnancy massage is a safe and incredibly relaxing treatment for mums-to-be and their babies, which is another good reason to choose it! 

​​

  • Fatigue and the strain on joints and muscles (Lower back pain/Sciatica/Cramps)

  • Nausea, Heartburn, Constipation

We are here to support you through this journey and offer advice, emphasising aftercare and self-empowerment.

 

During each session, we will discuss your needs and advise you accordingly with pregnancy stretches, breathing techniques and individual or partnered exercises.

WHO WE CAN HELP

Why should you try pregnancy massage in London?

We welcome women in the second and third trimester of pregnancy. Although there is no documented risk associated with receiving a pregnancy massage during the first trimester, we recommend waiting. Your body is undergoing significant changes during this time, and it's best not to overwhelm it with additional stimuli.

 

We also don't treat pregnant women considered high-risk by their doctors. Again, it is because we believe it is better to not overstimulate the body.

The treatment aims to help both:

  • Women with pregnancy-related issues. These commonly include leg swelling, pelvic dysfunction and lower back pain. We also offer compassionate care for women experiencing pregnancy depression and in need of a bit more support for their emotional well-being.

  • Pregnant Women who are not experiencing any particular problem but love to feel connected to their bodies and their growing baby 

  • For Pregnant Women who are at least 38 weeks pregnant and are looking how to bring on labour naturally we suggest booking Pregnancy Acupuncture

 

​So Whether you're experiencing mid-trimester back pain or late-term discomfort, rest assured that our pregnancy massage in London can be tailored to your needs.
