What is Aromatherapy Pregnancy Massage?
Pregnancy massage is a safe, nurturing massage which can support a woman throughout all stages of her pregnancy.
It reduces stress and tension whilst promoting overall wellbeing for the expectant mother.
During the treatment, I am guided by your needs and therefore take the time to get to understand what they are.
Safety guidelines are followed in choosing essential oils for a bespoke oil blend prepared for you, and used for its therapeutic effects.
This is combined with traditional and modern massage techniques for its relaxing effect, designed to address the muscular aches, pains and the physical strain attributed to the body adjusting to the changes which occur during pregnancy.
From the second trimester, it’s no longer comfortable nor safe for the mother to lie on her front. The massage is then carried out with the client in a side-lying position, with the support and comfort of pillows.

Each mother experiences her pregnancy differently yet there are common niggles, many of which massage and aromatherapy can address and relieve.
These include aches and pains, nausea, headaches, swollen ankles, piles, constipation, stuffy noses, insomnia and fatigue.
At the same time, the aromatherapy massage gives a mother that bit of nurturing that’s so necessary during pregnancy.
