Every pregnancy, and mum to be, is different, so every aspect of this treatment is tailored to you and your stage of pregnancy. At Thrive I have undertaken specialist raining to ensure that the treatments I deliver are safe and comfortable for you and your developing baby. The massage style will be gentle, yet effective and deeply relaxing. During your consultation we will design a treatment together. You can choose which areas of your body will be massaged and will have options on which positions you wish to be supported in for maximum comfort and relaxation. My therapy room is equipped with a specialist pregnancy support system, developed and widely used in the USA, which can safely and fully support you and your growing bump in a front lying position for part of your treatment. For mums to be with aches and pains in their back this means you can enjoy a full back and neck massage which is deeply relaxing. Please visit the FAQ section of my website where I have more information on benefits of massage and pregnancy and the support system I use. Please note that if you are having a straightforward pregnancy you should check that your midwife is happy for you to be massaged prior to booking. If you have experienced any pregnancy complications, or are considered a higher risk pregnancy, please bring a letter from your midwife confirming that they are happy for you to receive massage. The ‘hands on’ massage time will never be less than 45 minutes but may be slightly longer, up to an hour, depending on stage of pregnancy, complexity of consultation and whether this is your first pregnancy treatment at Thrive. The longer overall appointment time allows for an unhurried appointment, with plenty of time to relax, and to ensure your comfort using specialist supports and pillows when changing positions. Gift vouchers are available for this treatment and make a thoughtful gift for any mum to be.
