"the magical and healing power of touch, this treatment combines years of maternity nursing with Holistic Core Restore®  & massage therapy, divine self care for any Mum to be"

As a specialist Woman's Pilates & Health coach one of my goals is to help my pregnant clients have a pain free & enjoyable pregnancy. Pregnancy takes it’s toil on the body, no matter how much we look after ourselves and keep moving. Growing a whole new human requires effort.

During the 2nd & 3rd trimester the myofascial & skeletal system is put under immense duress & undergoes a complete transformation in terms of function.  This can create dysfunction and leads to soft tissue and joint discomfort, and, or, pain.

During pregnancy the body goes through many changes; hormones change, ligaments loosen, there is more strain on the body resulting in postural changes.  Compression can lead to syndromes such as Carpal Tunnel  which feels like pins and needles in the wrist and hand.  Piriformis Syndrome which can create numbness across the buttocks and legs. Hormonal changes can cause joints to become lax and feel unstable. Some women experience pelvic pain known as PPGP, Pregnancy-related Pelvic Girdle Pain, or SPD, Symphysis Pubis Dysfunction, as it use to be known.  It can feel like pain across the pubic bone, clicking or grinding in the pelvis, pain in the lower back, vagina or anus and difficulty walking or lifting the legs.

Pregnancy can be a very exciting time, but equally tiring, hectic and full of anxiety. Pregnancy massage can reinstate calm and tranquility.

What can you expect during a specialist pregnancy massage session?

Using my coaching skills I will choose a unique combination of  massage techniques & guide you in some functional breath work. By alleviating the discomfort pregnancy can bring yo will feel reacquainted you with your ever changing body. By stimulating the parasympathetic nervous system ( Rest and Digest System) we can relax both you and your baby using the gentle power of touch.
