Due to the coronavirus social distancing I have accepted this responsibility and have closed my doors for touch therapies like massage. If you have had your antenatal classes cancelled or are distancing yourself and want antenatal support and a community, I am part of a group of professionals who provide a weekly online pregnancy yoga class with 30minutes of dedicated question and themed session with a hypnobirthing midwife and myself: reflexology, birth doula and baby massage/parental support. If you wish to join us you can email email@example.com
I am qualified in massage catered to pregnancy from week 4 to week 42. A specially-tailored pregnancy massage and other treatments which are safe to enjoy. Massage is given whilst side lying and fully supported with specialised pillows/bolsters. You have a pillow under your head and one to cuddle or gently support your growing bump plus one under your leg to keep your pelvis straight, ensuring the most comfortable position to lay in pregnancy!
I use a specific massage oil. It is light and non-greasy. it washes out of towels well so they dont have that ‘oily’ smell, the same goes for the clothes you wear after the massage. It has jojoba oil to provide deep, nourishing skin care and Aloe Vera known to be healing and soothing to the skin. Leaves the skin feeling soft, smooth and moisturised, not sticky and uncomfortable like some oils may.
Pregnancy Massages in Maidenhead take place in my treatment room which is nestled in the garden.
The room is a comfortable temperature and the towels are warmed so they’re inviting to lay on. I use a massage sheet instead of lots of towels which should bring the highest amount of comfort during your treatment. I can also keep the treatment discreet using the sheet to cover the body whilst each body area is relaxed. These unique massages aim to relieve back tension, swollen hands and feet, eases the mind and lift your spirits.
What can massage in pregnancy improve?

Mind Body and Bump Treatment Room
Expectant mothers are not recommended to lay on your back (and it may be uncomfortable to do so anyway!) I have a fully electronic couch that cradles your body in a semi reclined sitting position. It has several inches of padding for comfort and I don’t use any couch paper, so you’ll be sitting on warmed, soft towels for your treatment. I choose music similar to that you’d find in a spa; non intrusive, but perfect to get lost in.
