Acupuncture during pregnancy

Acupuncture is a safe and gentle therapy that can be of help in many aspects of pregnancy. Pregnancy requires a lot of energy from the maternal body and acupuncture can assist in keeping the mum-to-be in tip top condition throughout the whole process.

Aromatherapy during pregnancy

As well as relaxing and easing tension of stressed muscles, aromatherapy treatment can help with a range of pregnancy-related issues.

I will work with you throughout your pregnancy to maintain your general wellbeing, and also provide blends for use during labour and post-partum. I can provide training in basic childbirth-massage and acupressure for birth partners to apply. After the birth, aromatherapy can be used in many ways to help recovery. This may be through massage or special blends designed for your home use. A shared massage lying with your new born baby is a very special treat for you both – time to relax and bond skin-to-skin.

Pregnancy massages are performed with the mum-to-be lying on her side supported with comfortable cushioned bolsters. A standard massage would start with the back, shoulder, arm and legs. The client will then gently turn to lie on their other side and the routine will be repeated. After this, mum can sit up and enjoy massage to her neck and face, feet, and a lovely shared treat for both mum and baby with gentle abdominal massage. The treatment itself lasts on average 80 minutes, but I allow a 2 hour appointment slot so that there is no rush. There is time to undress and dress at your own pace, get properly comfortable on the couch and take as many trips to the bathroom as you need!
