Pregnancy and Postnatal Massage
with Jude Soames - SoamesTherapy Massage for Pregnancy, Labour and Beyond
Heaton Acupuncture Clinic, Sandyford, NE2 1DJ
Appointments available Monday day time and evenings, Fridays and Saturdays.
(You can enjoy a specialist pregnancy massage at any time during your pregnancy - contact us if you have any concerns.)
Pregnancy Massage is extremely beneficial for your general well-being, helping with physical concerns, emotional stresses, and providing some information and reassurance.
Pregnancy Massage helps to relieve common aches and pains associated with pregnancy, particularly back ache, shoulder pain, rib flare, sciatic pain, and leg cramps. During a relaxing massage you have time to concentrate on yourself and to connect with your growing baby.
Postnatal Massage is safe at any time following labour, and is a very relaxing treat. It is useful for helping relieve aches and strains experienced in labour, and for providing rest and time to recuperate. You can bring your baby with you if you can't find childcare, or if you are breastfeeding - please mention this when you book your appointment.
A full consultation before every massage means that the massage is tailored to your needs.
The Pregnancy and Postnatal massages are both full body and last an hour. You lie on your side on a mattress on the floor, supported by pillows, which is a very safe and comfortable position during pregnancy or postnatal, including following a C-section. Clients have been known to fall asleep!
During the pregnancy massage consultation we can look at how some movements or positions may help you during your pregnancy, and may be of use during labour. Partners can be included too so they can help you with massage, movement and reassurance during your pregnancy and labour. If you want your partner to attend please mention this when you book your appointment as we will need extra time and there is a small charge.
