Pregnancy and Postnatal Massage
My name is Claire and I work as a Holistic Massage Therapist, specialising in pregnancy and postnatal massage. I have undertaken excellent pregnancy massage training with Suzanne Yates at
I offer massage sessions which are focussed on you, and what your needs are at the time we
work together. I aim to offer a space and experience that supports you in nurturing and
relaxing your body (which in turn nurtures and relaxes your baby), releases overwhelm, and
enables you to feel comfortable and engaged in your changing body. It’s somewhere that
you can be focussed on how you feel and what you need. Time-out to be nurtured, where
you can switch off from outside noise and demands and connect with yourself and the
growing life inside you.
Sessions last an hour and a half, in order to really give you time to let go and connect. I
support you through guided visualisations, breathing exercises, movement, pelvic floor
awareness and massage. The massage, which also includes gentle shiatsu work can take
place using a birthing ball, massage table or a futon on the floor. I can work with you at any
stage of pregnancy.
Massage can feel like a ‘pampering’ experience, but actually, massage for
pregnant women has been practised in different cultures around the world for many years.
It could be considered an essential to pre- natal care. Not only does the experience aim to
prevent and alleviate any physical discomfort, but it may also support increased blood flow
(which is great for your growing baby), improved digestion, better sleep, reduced stress and
greater sense of emotional wellbeing.
