“Had my first pregnancy massage at 31wks with Nicola. It was beyond incredible and by far the best massage I’ve ever had. Also been struggling with pregnancy insomnia and had my first proper nights sleep afterwards so I literally feel like a new woman. Will definitely book again!” Sarah via Facebook
“Amazing massage from Lowri. Pure heaven at 35 weeks pregnant! Couldn’t recommend one enough to anyone pregnant, especially someone who may be suffering with SPD like myself. To finally have some relief is amazing, will hopefully book another one before 40 weeks!” Sophie via Facebook
Having a Pregnancy Massage at Waterside Therapy Rooms is a little bit different from your regular ‘spa’ massage. We are all trained in sports and deep tissue massage, which means you will receive a much more ‘functional’ massage, helping to address specific issues and complaints and help relieve muscle imbalances and pelvic pain. Massage can also help to relieve anxiety, stress and fear associated with the ‘unknown’ of your journey into parenthood.
Massage works by helping to release endorphins (the feel good hormones) causing a reduction in adrenaline (the flight or fight stress response to a ‘life threatening’ situation) thus leaving you feeling calmer, more relaxed and able to sleep a little easier!
