Pregnancy Massage

What is Pregnancy Massage?

The therapist focuses on the individual needs of a mother-to-be, as her body goes through changes ahead of the childbirth experience. This massage is very soothing and helps mothers to deeply relax and connect with their baby. Treatment is either carried out on a Pregnancy Massage Body Cushion support, which safely enables mother to be lying face down, this equipment fully supports baby and is incredibly comfortable. Or by the traditional method of lying sideways supported with pillows.

Pregnancy and Post-Natal Massage – with Paula Chapman

My therapeutic and relaxing treatments provide the perfect preparation for childbirth, supporting mums-to-be both physically and emotionally. This safe and supportive therapy is a gentle and calming treatment giving you the time to relax and connect with your baby. I can also work more deeply with you to provide significant pain relief at this special time particularly in treating common ailments during and after pregnancy including;

  • Back, hip and pelvic girdle pain
  • Sciatica
  • Neck and Shoulder pain
  • Headaches
  • Cramping
  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
  • Oedema
  • Circulatory and respiratory benefits
  • Reduce stress levels and calm anxiety

To make you feel fully comfortable I will work with you in the side-lying position using pillows and bolsters to support neck, bump and knees. You will be covered with towels and blankets, with only the body part that is being worked on exposed.

Following the birth, post-natal massage can help the body to recover and re-balance and provide a peaceful, calm and nurturing experience.

Initial session includes a thorough consultation, after-care advice is also given. Treatments available from 16 weeks to full term.
