Nicola Ruth Massage & Well-Being for Women

Postnatal Massage

“Thanks so much for the post-natal massage – it was superb and I was massively impressed that you were able to keep going with my 4mth old wanting attention and then a feed! Not only keeping going with all of that going on, you did it as if it was the most normal scenario you encounter. Love how much looser my back, neck and shoulders feel” Rachel, Cardiff

Having a postnatal massage is an absolute MUST after giving birth. It can be hugely ‘healing’; bringing focus back to you, your new body and allowing a space to either switch off, or ‘de-brief’ as you feel you need.

Postnatal massage can be enjoyed from anytime after you give birth, dependent on how you are feeling.  I have seen women for treatment within the first few days of giving birth, but others might find it takes a little while to settle into things.  It may depend on the type of birth you’ve had, but sessions will always be adapted to your needs.  I can perform the massage lying on your side if your breasts or abdomen are sore, or maybe a seated head massage can provide relief from tension and pain in the neck and shoulders, or you might be ready for a deep tissue massage immediately to sort out those areas of tension remaining from being pregnant.

My Postnatal sessions are completely individual. Whether you are looking for a purely relaxing session to switch off, whether you are struggling with pinching or numbness in your c-section scar, whether you have or suspect you have a pelvic organ prolapse, or even if you just want to let off steam – I am here for you and promise a postnatal massage session will make a difference!

I am also more than happy for you to bring baby along to the session if you need to.
