Pregnancy & Baby
Please note that due to the current public health crisis, pregnancy is considered a "moderate risk" and therefore you would be required to present confirmation from your GP or midwife that you are fit and well, and can receive massage. Please also note that because pregnancy massage is a side-lying treatment, to adhere to guidelines for close contact services, you would be required to wear a face covering for the duration of your session.
Pregnancy massage is a great complementary choice that goes hand-in-hand with traditional antenatal care. Safe from 12 weeks onward, benefits of pregnancy massage may include:
relief from many pregnancy-related discomforts, including headache and backache
relief from leg cramps and oedema (swelling)
reduction of stress
reduction of stress on weight-bearing joints
improved lymph circulation (lymph is the fluid that carries waste away from muscles and internal organs)
stimulation of serotonin, which is the body's anti-pain hormone
Pregnancy massage makes a lovely gift for the expectant mother in your life.
Because your treatment is unique to you, I charge for my time, not for the treatment.

Post-natal massage. Now that baby is here, it's more important than ever for you to take care of yourself. Post-natal massage helps you to reconnect with your body after giving birth, allowing you to come to terms with the changes to your body. If finding a baby sitter is a problem, you are welcome to bring baby along. We will pause for feeds and to soothe baby if necessary.
By appointment only.
No walk-ins or same-day appointments. For Saturday appointments, please ring. Regrettably, I cannot see new male clients unless they have been referred by an existing client. Please note that if you cancel with less than 24 hours' notice, you will be required to pay 50% of the cost of your session.
