"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"
