Why Massage During Pregnancy?

Massage during pregnancy not only makes a woman feel pampered, but offers undeniable physical benefits as well. Massage can relieve fatigue, help in relaxation, enhance sleep and calm an active baby.

Second Trimester

Third Trimester

While prenatal massage is suggested for nearly all moms, there are considerations for the safety and comfort of mother and baby. Please acquire a doctors note for appointments made in the first trimester. Any involved complications as pre-eclampsia, gestational diabetes, etc., will require a note as well.

During the 2nd and 3rd trimester of the pregnancy, massage can stimulate blood flow, which may assist in the prevention of anemia. An increase in muscle tone and flexibility will occur, aiding in alleviating leg cramps and muscle spasms.

The pregnancy massage is very similar to ordinary massages, however the pregnancy massage is performed by a trained specialist in prenatal massage who unerstands the individual needs of the expecting mother - and baby.

Muscular discomforts, such as cramping, tightening, stiffness, tension, and knots, can all be alleviated.

Our Pregnancy Massage Therapists:

Alexandra Evans, shiatsu and yoga:
Alex is a Shiatsu Practitioner, Bio-Dynamic Cranial Sacral Practitioner, Massage therapist and Yoga teacher. She has been practicing for over 12years and loves this work.
She loves working structurally to stretch and release the body particularly the lower back and believes having a treatment helps boost the whole body not just the injured area.
Many people also see Alex for regular treatment as a way of releasing the pressure of every day life and keeping themselves strong yet relaxed. She is excellent at getting you to deeply relax and let go, there's many a person that's fallen asleep during a session!! So don't be at all surprised....
She always works with an awareness of emotions and a sense of the whole. She also works with pregnancy and post natal and was quoted in The Sunday Times recently as "those in the know go to see Alexandra Evans"
Taking time to de-stress even for an hour a week can make a marked impact on your life, give your body some quality respite to repair and relax itself.
