Supporting the life of a growing baby is hard work!

During pregnancy our bodies are adapting and changing to carrying a load and sometimes they are taking a bit of a hammering.
It’s important to support your body through this process and massage is a great way to do this!
Massage Therapist Catherine Pearce is specifically trained in pregnancy massage and we have the equipment to make this a comfortable experience for you.

The benefits

Pregnancy massage has many benefits to the mother and her baby, including:
  • Soothing and relaxing nervous tension and anxiety
  • Aiding circulation
  • Assisting with increased fluid retention
  • Relief of Carpel Tunnel symptoms
  • Relief from headaches
  • Alleviating common muscular discomforts caused by muscular changes and tension such as lower back pain, hip pain, upper back neck and shoulder pain.
  • Most importantly massage offers a mother-to-be the time to embrace her pregnancy, rest, relax and recharge her body.

You can safely have a massage throughout your entire pregnancy, including from trimester one.  The first trimester has numerous physiological changes occurring, and providing this nurturing massage support during this time can assist your body with these changes.

We have a variety of positions that can be used to ensure a safe and effective treatment for the mother and her baby, these include using a pregnancy belly pillow system and the side-lying position.
We recommend your first appointment to be for a 1-hour session, this allows for a through health history and time to discuss your current pregnancy. We ask you arrive 10-15mins early fill out the client intake form and give yourself time to settle.
