Treatment

Our recommendation

Our lead therapist Nadège says: “This is a safe treatment for mums-to-be who are in their second or third trimester, or have recently given birth. It’s designed to soothe the aches and pains that come with growing new life. Your specialist will tailor the treatment to your specific needs.”

During your treatment

All pregnancy massages are performed by therapists who’ve undergone specific training, so feel free to ask any questions you might have before your treatment starts.

You’ll be on your side throughout the treatment to make sure your baby receives oxygen and nutrients by not compressing the umbilical vein.

Your therapist will use long, slow strokes and kneading movements in the places you’re feeling tense, with special attention paid to the lower back and legs.

During your pregnancy, regular massages can help you cope with discomfort as well as relieve insomnia, neck and back pain, joint pain, leg cramping and sciatica.
