Massage & Myotherapy for Pregnancy & Postpartum 

 

I have specialised training in pre & postnatal care and over 10 years of experience in assessing and treating pregnant women. I can assist with a range of pregnancy-related aches and pains as well as help you prepare your body for labour and birth with safe and effective evidence-based practices.

Pregnancy Massage & Myotherapy is safe in all three trimesters and treatment can be resumed as soon as you wish post vaginal birth or two weeks (or sooner with obstetrician clearance) following a caesarean birth.

The main focus is on relieving your physical discomforts, whilst being aware of hormonal and emotional changes during this transition.
