Massage is a wonderful way to help you relax while pregnant. It gives you "me" time and is the perfect opportunity to let go and release any tension.
Pregnancy massage supports the body through the many changes during those 9 months. While you drift away on a lovely soft fluffy cloud of relaxation, I'll work on those aches and pains, helping you feel more comfortable, calm and relaxed.
The benefits of pregnancy massage are:
- Relieves back ache
- Helps to release tension in your shoulders/neck
- Can greatly reduce swelling in legs, hands & feet
- Improves circulation
- Relieves muscle cramps
- Helps relieve sciatica
- Helps release feel good hormones
- Baby benefits from the relaxation and hormones released
- Can help reduce labour duration
You will be lying either in a side-lying position, semi-reclined or seated position, depending on which stage of pregnancy you're in, and the treatment required.
We use neutral oils so that there's no worry of strong smells (we know how much pregnancy can alter those senses!).
I'm a fully qualified massage therapist, with over 7 years experience. I specialise in pregnancy & postnatal massage. I work with each client, tailoring the treatment to suit their individual, specific requirements. Whether you would like a relaxing massage to help ease the aches and pains of pregnancy, or whether you would like massage to release tension and knots in your muscles, I can use my experience and training to help you get results. Each treatment includes a full consultation, and if required, a posture assessment.

I initially trained over 20 years ago at the International School of Aromatherapy, am a member of and Local Support Group Coordinator for the Federation of Holistic Therapist and I run my own Farnham practice as well as being part of the complementary therapy team at the Sue Ryder Trust. My approach is holistic and I will often suggest which treatment may be of the most benefit for each individual aiming not just to treat your symptoms but to rebalance your whole system by identifying and treating the possible underlying cause of any physical or emotional problems, using complementary therapies to treat each person as an individual with their specific health and emotional needs or simply to offer an opportunity to take an hour to be yourself, away from the demands of everyday life.
My menu of Natural Therapies is a simple but comprehensive range, supporting the many ailments that present themselves as well as providing the best relaxation ever, helping you achieve a better level of health and wellbeing through the use of natural therapies.
