Book a pregnancy or postpartum massage
Pregnancy massage has been specifically tailored for expectant mothers, focusing on alleviating physical discomforts associated with pregnancy, including lower back pain and swelling, as well as providing much needed relaxation.
Postpartum massage has been created for women following childbirth, usually in the weeks and months following delivery. Postpartum massage helps the body recover from the physical and emotional stress of labour and delivery, focusing on easing soreness, promoting relaxation and relieving tension.

What to expect during a pregnancy massage
After being greeted by your therapist, a short consultation will be held to identify any specific areas you would like to focus on so your therapist can best address your needs.
You will be asked to lie on the massage bed underneath the covers. Your therapist will ensure you are comfortable with specially shaped bolsters and additional cushions to make lying more comfortable. During the later stages of pregnancy, it is advisable to lie on your side with supportive cushions for both comfort and safety. Communicate with your therapist during the treatment about pressure or any discomfort you are feeling.
