We understand that pregnancy can place demands on a woman's body structure and posture from constant changes to adapt to the growing baby. Many therapies that we offer can help relieve musculoskeletal discomfort and tension by helping the body's structure to cope with such demands. (e.g. therapeutic balancing techniques such as gentle stretching and exercise programmes pre-natal/post-natal massage, and reflexology to name a few).
Before proceeding with any treatment we make certain that their won't be any contra-indications by taking a careful obstetric history. As well as providing treatment depending on assessment findings, Nick will help you understand how to work with your body, through the constant changes which occur during pregnancy. He will also help you deal with any spinal or pelvic strains or other problems you may have through the transitional period leading to a happier, fulfilling pregnancy and beyond.
Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to bring anything?
If you have any details about your pregnancy such as before the birth and delivery and immediate post natal period this will be helpful. This will help understanding of any stresses and strains that may of occurred in the uterus and birth itself which can influence health.
When is the best time to receive therapy?
The best time to indulge in a therapy e.g. pregnancy massage or complementary holistic healthcare therapy is during your second trimester. This is also the safest time for you to enjoy all the fabulous services in which we offer.
Products - Lotions & Oils
If you are sensitive to smells, since being pregnant we can provide scent-free lotions. Please bear in mind that your skin may be more sensitive during pregnancy and certain products may not be suitable for you during this time. For example certain essential oils can be unsafe to use, to avoid disappointment please contact the clinic so we can discuss other alternatives.
As well as providing treatment (depending on findings) treatments are often enhanced by exercise prescription. We will also provide massage and therapeutic techniques that your birth partner can use on you when you are in labour.
