What can I expect at my appointment?
During your appointment you will go through a consultation form with the masseuse to discuss any conditions being reviewed by your maternity team, to highlight areas that can be supported 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. If you have been identified with a high risk pregnancy we would recommend you speak with your Midwife or Doctor before attending your appointment.
I first came to see Emma after having my first child with back problems. Within two sessions Emma had managed to fix my back and also started to sort my pelvic floor out. I continued to see Emma for treatment during my second pregnancy and six weeks after having my baby through C-Section my body feels as though it is back to normal. Emma’s treatment has been amazing and has made my body feel 100 %. She has also worked wonders on my new baby, transforming him to a very content baby with her fantastic treatment.
