Pregnancy Massage

Your body goes through many changes during pregnancy. These changes include reducing muscular tension to allow space in some areas for the growing baby whilst increasing muscular tension elsewhere to support posture. This can result in making you feel uncomfortable and can cause you to experience aches & pains that you did not have before.

Pregnancy massage is safe and beneficial for the majority of pregnant women and can help with any muscular aches and pains that you are experiencing during pregnancy.

Regardless of the stage of your pregnancy, I will adapt the massage (including pressure, depth and techniques used) to suit your needs and to treat your muscular issues effectively and comfortably for you. I use appropriate draping to maintain your privacy and to ensure that you are comfortable at all times.

As the pregnancy progresses, it is not safe or comfortable to lie on your front so a side lying positioning is used.  This position still enables me full access to all muscles so the same level of treatment and benefits can be achieved.

Benefits of Pregnancy Massage include (but not limited to):

  • Reducing muscular tension that is felt e.g. back, neck and shoulder pain/discomfort

  • Reducing sciatic pain (pain down the leg from the hip)

  • Reducing Carpal Tunnel Syndrome symptoms

  • Treating Symphysis Pubis Disorder (SPD) and Pelvic Girdle Pain (PGP)

  • Reducing swelling and puffiness

  • Reducing tension headaches and migraines


There are particular situations when Pregnancy Massage is not suitable such as high-risk pregnancy or particular health conditions. Please ask your GP or midwife first to check if massage is suitable for you. If you have any queries or concerns then I am happy to discuss these with you prior to booking a massage.

Postnatal Massage

So many physical and emotional changes and stresses are placed on the body during pregnancy and labour. Postnatal massage can help you recover from these by using appropriate treatments to help support you as you look after your baby.

Postnatal Massage can particularly help with (but not limited to):


  • Reducing muscle tensions/injury as a result of pregnancy/labour

  • Reduce back, neck and shoulder pain that can be caused by newborn care

  • Helping with C-Section recovery including aiding scar tissue recovery - this can begin around 8-12 weeks once scar has healed

  • Treating Diastasis Recti / Abdominal separation – can begin around 8 weeks post delivery
