Soothe tired feet and back ache
Targeted tension relief
Why you'll love it
We designed this treatment as a safe massage for the second or third trimester of pregnancy. Performed with you lying on your side, it provides comforting relief from common muscle aches and pains that come with pregnancy.
What happens during a pregnancy massage?
Feel free to ask any questions you may have prior to the start of your treatment, since all pregnancy massages are performed by therapists who have undergone specific training.
Throughout the massage, you'll be on your side to avoid compressing the umbilical vein and ensure that your baby receives oxygen and nutrients.
In the areas where you're feeling tense, your therapist will apply long, slow strokes and kneading motions, paying particular attention to the lower back and legs.
Regular massages can relieve insomnia, sciatica, leg cramps, joint pain, and neck and back pain while you're pregnant. They can also help you cope with discomfort.

No – if you’re pregnant, you’ll need to book a specialist treatment from a therapist who’s trained and insured to offer it.
To keep you and your therapist safe, it’s important to hold off on getting a massage if you’re unwell with a fever or flu-like symptoms, or if you have a contagious skin disease. Therapists have the right to cancel your treatment if they think it will harm you or them in any way.
If you have a health condition and you’re not sure about booking a massage, consult your GP for advice beforehand.
