Pregnancy Remedial Massage
During your Pregnancy Massage appointment your Therapist will discuss safe positioning depending on your pregnancy journey. Due to the potential stress and complications of facedown belly pillows your Professionally Trained Therapist will offer supported supine or side lying positions depending on your pregnancy journey. But do not stress we have lots of bolsters, pillows and helpful tips and tricks to get you snuggly and comfortable. Our Pregnant clients often comment on how comfortable they are and find it easy to drift off into a snooze mid massage.

We advise individuals that are a High-Risk Pregnancy, are having Pregnancy Complications or have had 2 or more miscarriages in a row to check with your Medical Professional or Midwife before booking your appointment.
Oh and labour! Once a client has started Active Labour we go hands off until your gorgeous bubs has arrived.
When can I come back in for a massage post pregnancy?
This timeline depends on your birth. For clients who has a C-section, wait 6 weeks post-natal to let you the scar tissue heal.
For non-C section births this depends on Mum. If Mum is feeling healthy post birth, we usually recommend she can come in for a post-natal massage as soon as her post birth bleed has reduced to spotting or completely gone. Your first massage within 12 weeks post-natal can also be booked as a pregnancy massage as this is within the 4th trimester and your Pregnancy Therpaist takes your birth journey into special consideration with your massage treatment plan. Plus, we love seeing photos of your little ones!
