Massage can be given safely to women from 13 weeks into their pregnancy; postnatal pregnancy is also very beneficial as the body readjusts after giving birth.
During the massage you will usually be asked to lie on your side on the massage couch where you will be made comfortable with cushions and/or bolsters for support. There is also the option to sit on a chair and lean against the couch if that is more comfortable. The treatment generally lasts an hour.
I use a carefully selected blend of carrier oils to nourish the skin and reduce the likelihood of stretch marks. To this I blend pure essential oils specifically tailored to your individual needs whilst taking into account any medical condition you may have.
