Pregnancy Massage

Pregnancy massage is a wonderful way to help alleviate many common discomforts caused by the physical changes of pregnancy, as well as to promote a sense of well-being and to reduce stress.

Massage Therapist Rachael Merrett is skilled in a variety of massage techniques, including the treatment of women before during and after pregnancy.

Rachael holds a specialist qualification in the functional movement of the body before, during and after pregnancy. This enables her to identify exactly which structures are likely to be causing discomfort during pregnancy, and to treat them effectively.

Benefits of having a specialist massage whilst pregnant

  • Can help with the reduction of stress, tension and anxiety
  • Can help with the reduction of pregnancy related swelling in hands, feet and ankles
  • Easing of muscular discomforts, as a result of being pregnant, in areas such as the lower back & neck, the calves, as well as reducing tension and tightening that can be experienced throughout the body
  • Helps with relaxation which in turn can increase quality of sleep whilst pregnant

  • Increases blood and lymph flow which can help increase the elimination of toxins through the circulatory and lymphatic systems, this can also help with fatigue and in the delivery of more oxygen and nutrients to pregnant mother and baby
  • Increases oxygen in the blood
  • Stimulates the release of endorphins, the body’s natural pain killers, into the brain and nervous system
  • Can help to relieve the symptoms of anxiety and/or depression
  • Can help to ease stress after giving birth
