BPsychSc (Hons), Dip Remedial Massage, Cert Pregnancy Massage
I love to connect with mothers and support them through the many physical and emotional changes that occur during pregnancy.
Experience an enjoyable pregnancy massage that specifically targets areas of discomfort to provide relief to the neck, back and tired legs. Using specialised techniques I will work to alleviate pain and discomfort, whilst heightening relaxation for you. My aim is to guide you safely through your pregnancy with a focus on health, well-being and relaxation.
The correct positioning is very important. While there are tables with cutouts for the stomach, these are not recommended by Pregnancy Massage Australia. The side-lying position is the most supportive as it eases the lumbar spine, supports the pelvis and minimises strain on uterine ligaments. For this reason, during your 2nd and 3rd trimester I do a beautiful side-lying massage supported by comfortable pillows. All of my clients find this positioning extremely comfortable and relaxing.
Post Natal Massage
I also provide post natal massage. Massage in this time has shown to improve the health and well-being of the new mother. Massage alleviates postpartum aches and pains, particularly the demands of breastfeeding which can cause pain in the upper back, neck and shoulders. I use a Body Cushion which is perfect to alleviate pressure on the breasts that provides very comfortable cushioning allowing you to lay comfortably face down.
