Pregnancy Massage is a wonderful holistic treatment adapted by specially trained practitioners to treat expectant mothers. It involves the use of special techniques and positions that are safe and comfortable during pregnancy. Pregnancy Massage can be used to reduce swelling in the hands and feet, ease aching backs and legs, reduce stress, relieve anxiety and tension and induce a state of relaxation. It is also a great way to enable bonding between mother and foetus as they both enjoy becoming relaxed during each treatment.
Our practitioners will work with the client to determine pressure and sensitivity and identify where clients are carrying their stress as the baby grows. Soothing Touch therapists may also give ideas about how else clients can support themselves during the pregnancy to encourage a smooth delivery.
Clients will often have regular pregnancy massage treatments from the 4th month of pregnancy until they deliver. This may be fortnightly or monthly, depending on a client's needs, although, if they are struggling to sit down for long periods due to pelvic pain, we would recommend having weekly treatments. Sessions will usually take place at one of our clinics in Feltham or Twickenham in West London. Sessions normally last 60 minutes. We may also be able to offer this therapy at your workplace.
