Pregnancy is a time of great physical change. It is also a very emotional time. My nurturing pregnancy massage feels great and can bring huge benefits to both you and your unborn baby. Pregnancy Massage is great for supporting you with symptoms experienced while you are expecting your baby.

Typical symptoms of the expectant mum include:

Swollen ankles
Carpal tunnel syndrome
Lower back pain due to the shifts in weight
Hip, rib and shoulder pain
Neck stress
Postural problems

The massage, which is given during the second and third trimester, will be tailored to meet your needs so that it plays a part in your happy, healthy pregnancy, labour and postpartum period. I work with the whole back and shoulders, abdomen, arms and hands, legs and feet, face and scalp, or I can give more focused treatments to help with pain conditions.

I went to see Maria during my pregnancy due to ongoing lower back pain. I found Maria’s approach refreshing – bucking the ‘no pain no gain’ theory. She really listened to me and how I was feeling whenever she was doing a treatment and explained the treatment in terms of how it might help my back pain. I left every appointment feeling pain free and walking normally – even the day before I went into labour! I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone – pregnant or not – for deep tissue massage.
