During pregnancy the body and mind undergo enormous changes. This may result in some physical complaints, i.e. backache, swollen ankles and other aches and pains as well as emotional stress in dealing with these changes. A pregnancy massage is a full body treatment which is specifically tailored to the needs of the pregnant woman and can help to ease some of the aches and pains whilst being deeply relaxing and nourishing.
Pregnancy massage is recommended after 12 weeks of pregnancy up until birth.
Post-natal massage is designed to help the new Mum's body recover from childbirth and to deal with all the new aches and pains caused by breastfeeding, carrying baby and equipment etc. The massage will be tailored to everyone's specific needs and is usually a full-body treatment. In these first few weeks and months when all the focus is on the new baby it is also a chance for Mum to be kind to herself and receive a nourishing and relaxing treatment.
It is suitable from 1 week after birth (4 weeks after a Caesarian section, depending on how well the scar is healing).
