start of pregnancy . Your massage will be carried out on a traditional massage table where you will lie on your side with pillows & wedges for comfort & support. You will need to disrobe for your massage and towels/throws etc will be provided for your modesty, warmth & comfort.
You will receive a consultation where your needs and preferences will be taken into consideration.
Pregnancy massage itself is a very gentle treatment using classic massage techniques tailored for the expectant mother’s needs. It also helps prepare the body for childbirth by helping loosen the pelvis and rid the body of excess tension prior to the onset of labour.
