Massage during pregnancy is perfectly safe as long as both the mother and the unborn child are well and the pregnancy is progressing to the satisfaction of all concerned with their care.
There are many “old wives tales” about how massage during the early or later part of pregnancy is “unsafe”, however it is during these times that massage can be of huge benefit: reduce the effects of nausea, aid sleep, help reduce blood pressure, ease aching lower back, control puffiness in feet – to name a few.
The methods I use during my treatment are a mix of Western and Eastern approaches in caring for the pregnant woman and her unborn baby. It is not just a simple case of making sure the woman does not lie on her stomach – there are numerous more factors and “energies” to consider to guarantee that the treatment is as effective as possible and caters for her needs completely.
I use standard massage movements of varying profundity, manual lymphatic drainage and shiatsu points. These, combined with positioning, exercises and advice for easing the discomfort of pregnancy and labour, have proven to be of huge benefit and relief for my pregnant ladies and have enabled them to enjoy their pregnancies, which for some was not the case when they came to see me for the first time.

Please contact me to see how I can help you. I am happy to discuss and offer any advice on whether you should seek massage or another more appropriate treatment. It is better to do something than leave it. I am a great believer in the fact that the body is not designed to be in pain, it does not like it and we suffer on many levels whilst we are in continued pain.
