Daily life impacts on our body in many ways. Although we can easily become tired, stressed, anxious and exhausted we seldom create the space to explore the therapeutic form of beneficial relaxation. Holistic massage can create instant improvement in the quality of sleep and concentration, improve circulation and waste removal and encourage deeper, more relaxed breathing, and is an accessible treatment for all ages.
I am able to adapt each holistic massage using some deep tissue techniques for clients suffering from discomfort/muscle tightness.
No two treatments are the same and will be tailored to a clients needs.
(Any health conditions affecting the muscles or skeletal system will need to be discussed with your gp beforehand)

Although pregnancy is a wonderful time for a woman, it comes with many changes to the body which can put pressure on the joints, ligaments and organs which can cause discomfort and pain.

WHAT HAPPENS DURING A SESSION?
Pregnancy massage includes the back, neck, shoulders, legs, arms, face and scalp and also bump if mum to be is comfortable with it.
Most pregnancy massages are performed side lying on a massage couch, but I can offer an alternative not widely available and that is a bump bag (originally from Australia) this unique piece of equipment enables mum to be to lay on her front with bump safely supported.
The benefits are obviously that you can lay on your front but it also means no climbing on a couch as the massage is performed on the bump bag on the floor.
*Please note most clients find this comfortable up to the end of pregnancy but I recommend booking in before 37 weeks if possible
