Pregnancy

At conception and during pregnancy a woman’s deeper  reservoirs of energy are drawn upon to prepare her body  to support her growing baby. Shiatsu, Massage & Moxibustion can enhance the  flow of this energy, promoting fertility, benefiting all  stages of pregnancy, contributing to a positive birth experience and on through to post natal and baby treatment.

Treatments are valuable throughout the childbearing year and can  help support women with common difficulties such as:

•  Back Pain
•  Pelvic pain & instability (SPD)
•  Breech position
•  Nausea & acid reflux
• morning sickness
• oedema • restless legs & fatigue
•  Overdue labour
•  Problems conceiving
•  Problems carrying to term
•  Recovery after miscarriage
•  Post-natal recovery

Treatments are 1 hour £45
