What are the benefits of pregnancy massage?
A specialist treatment, wherever you are in Manchester
Ease pressure and swelling in your joints and back
Unwind and soothe stress
Why you should try it
If you're in your second or third trimester, or if you've recently given birth, this is a safe treatment to help soothe aches and pains.
All pregnancy massage therapists are specially trained, and will gladly tailor their treatment to your needs.
During your treatment
Don't be afraid to ask any questions before your treatment starts. Your therapist is a specially-qualified professional and will be happy to help.
To make sure your umbilical vein, which carries oxygen and nutrients to your baby, is never compressed, you’ll be on your side throughout the treatment.
Paying special attention to the lower back and legs, your therapist will use long, slow strokes to gradually relese tension.
If you suffer from insomnia, neck and back pain, joint pain, leg cramping and sciatica, a regular massage can help keep that discomfort at bay.

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.
