Pregnancy Massage

Lesley and Helen both have advanced training in Pregnancy Massage, so you can be confident that mother and baby are in safe hands.

Studies show that there are many benefits to having regular massage during pregnancy.

Massage benefits blood circulation, bringing more oxygen and nutrients to the cells of mother and baby, thereby boosting the immune system of both. In addition, it aids lymphatic drainage, eases tension, relaxes muscles and calms and de-stresses both mother and baby. Pregnancy Massage can also help heavy, painful legs, aid sleep and reduce high blood pressure as well as supporting the physiological and emotional needs that naturally arise during pregnancy.

Trials performed by the Touch Research Institute, University of Miami School of Medicine, published in the Journal of Psychosomatic Obstetrics and Gynaecology (March 1999) confirmed that massage therapy during pregnancy had very postive results.

Reported benefits include:-
- Reduced anxiety and improved mood
- Better sleep
- Less back pain
- Reduced stress hormones
- Fewer complications in labour
- Babies with fewer postnatal complications
- A lower rate of prematurity
