What can I expect at my appointment?
Prior to your appointment you will be emailed a consultation form to complete and return to our masseuse. If you have any conditions being reviewed by your maternity team or you have been identified with a high risk pregnancy we would recommend you speak with your Midwife or Doctor before attending your appointment.
When you arrive your masseuse will discuss your consultation form before the massage begins. When the massage commences you will be comfortably positioned on your side with cushions to support you. Our Masseuse will then use a series of massage techniques to treat you from head to toe. If you have a particular area you’d like to focus on, please let our Masseuse know, we want you to get the most out of your pregnancy massage.
This type of massage is gentle to promote relaxation and shouldn’t be painful. If you do experience discomfort and feel uncomfortable at any time, please let our Masseuse know
We offer the following appointments:
40 minutes – This massage will focus on key areas you wish to have treated
70 minutes – This massage will be a full body massage, with focus on key areas you have highlighted.
Pregnancy massages have so many benefits and we aim for you to leave the treatment room feeling energised and relaxed.
