about pregnancy massage

Pregnancy can be a wonderful time but as your body is changing and adjusting, it can also result in aches, pains as well as some stress and tiredness. My aim as a therapist specialising in pregnancy massage is to support you through this exciting and challenging time by helping to relieve physical discomforts while also calming and soothing you.

You can book an appointment at the fully accessible treatment room in Headingley, Leeds or a mobile appointment so you can have your massage at your home (there may be a small, additional charge for travel to your home, please see below). Appointments are available for other types of massage therapy too please just see the link on the Book an Appointment menu.

There's lots more information below but please don't hesitate to get in touch with me if there is anything at all that you aren't sure of.

*The price above includes travel to your home if you live in the north and west Leeds areas and so if you live outside these areas there may be a small additional charge for travel time and petrol expenses to your home. This will always be agreed with you before your appointment. The mobile appointment times include time to set up the equipment and have a full consultation with you prior to your massage. 

Massage during pregnancy has been reported to have a number of benefits for you and your baby. As well as addressing some of the physical discomforts relating to pregnancy such as back ache, swollen ankles and muscular tension, pregnancy massage can aid lymphatic drainage, help stimulate a sluggish digestive system, enhance your relationship with your changing body and shape while also giving you some peaceful, relaxing time to yourself.

Each treatment is tailored to your individual needs and stage of pregnancy. I carry out a full consultation with you at your first appointment to ensure that massage is appropriate for you and then take time at each subsequent appointment to find out how you are so that each treatment meets your requirements at the time.

I am experinced and fully qualified in prenatal massage and have been trained to use the appropriate techniques and positions to ensure that your treatment is safe and comfortable. I am very flexible and happy to work around you – so if your treatment needs to be interrupted so you can go to the loo, see to your children or just stretch out, then that is no problem!

Pregnancy massage is suitable after you’ve had your twelve week scan right up until your baby’s birth. If you are having a difficult pregnancy or have certain health problems, massage might not be appropriate for you, or your midwife or doctor may need to give their approval prior to a treatment. However we will talk through this when you make your appointment, and further information on this can be found here.

Dads-to-be, partners and your wider family can also benefit from support at this time and so I offer a range of other massage therapies which can be booked alongside your treatment. Please just follow the link to find out more about other treatments offered.

I work from an accessible and purpose built treatment room facility in Headingley, Leeds. It is parking right by the door, a waiting room and toilet facilities (all so important when you are pregnant!). I also offer mobile appointments in the Leeds and Bradford city areas. 

To find out more about what to expect from your appointment, please just follow the link on the 'Book an Appointment' menu.

Your doctor or midwife may have recommended that you have massage treatments as part of your ante-natal care. If this is the case and you need confirmation of your appointment to give to your employer so that you can have paid time off work for your treatments, please let me know in advance and I can supply you with this at your appointment. 

To find out more about the benefits of pregnancy massage and how this treatment differs from regular massage, please do take a look at the massage in pregnancy safety section on the main menu and the frequently asked questions section (link below). And if you'd like to have a chat to find out more or book an appointment, please don't hesitate to contact me - I'd love to hear from you!
