Our recommendation

Our lead therapist Nadège says: “This is a safe treatment for mums-to-be who are in their second or third trimester. 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.
“Regular massages during pregnancy can help ease discomfort as well as relieve insomnia, neck and back pain, joint pain, leg cramping and sciatica.”

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.
Your therapist will ask you to prepare two pillows to use as props and they’ll help you get as comfy as possible. 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.
