Pregnancy Massage Leeds


It is such a wonderful privilege to be able to work with people along their journey to parenthood. This massage is suitable for all stages of pregnancy, from the first trimester into the postnatal period. It can be taken as a one off pampering treat or as part of a holistic approach to the maternity including birthing partners in sessions to continue the supporting a nurturing mother and baby.

This massage is more than just a massage it is as diverse and adaptable as pregnancy, birthing and parenthood can be. What we do during a session is completely individual to your needs on the day and is based on the consultation which takes place in the beginning of each appointment. Consultations are hugely important which is why I recommend 75 minutes for your initial appointment. If you come for a course of treatments you will experience how the bodywork adapts to your changing needs. We can also include your birthing partner in an appointment so they can learn techniques to support you through pregnancy and labour.

I support clients through many issues from nausea, anxiety, restless leg syndrome to tight muscles, swollen ankles and SPD. Having this therapy will provide a space where you feel safe, comfortable (many women are surprised at just how comfortable they are) and able to talk through excitements or concerns. The bodywork we use can be light, gentle and flowing or more in-depth if that is the type of massage you prefer.

pregnancy massage leedsI also provide one-off sessions which people use as a way of marking their maternity leave, final trimester and late stages of pregnancy.

Each session provides the time for you to develop a deeper connection with your baby. We can use visualisations to develop this connection which may be particularly useful if you are already a busy individual and finding time to yourself is tricky, if previous pregnancies and births have been challenging or if this is your first baby. Visualisations can also be used outside of the session and with a partner too.

Other aspects of the bodywork may include:

         improving the appearance of swelling in the wrists and ankles

–    useful tips to support you through pregnancy, getting an exercise ball is just one!

         releasing tense shoulders

         soothing an aching lower back and abdominal muscles

         loosening tight hips and calves

–    working with merdians

–    Regathering your energy and calming the body after the birth

Testimonial

I saw an advert for pregnancy massage whilst having lunch one day and thought I’d give it a go (especially as I was getting more and more backache as my pregnancy progressed). Amy tailors/tailored each treatment session to my needs and I leave feeling looser and less stressed than when I arrived. I continued to come after my baby was born and have found each session invaluable and I always look forward to my next appointment and a chance to unwind.
