Massage is incredibly beneficial to our bodies causing physiological changes to reduce stress hormones and promote relaxation. As pregnancy can often bring on new physical and emotional changes, massage can be a useful therapy to support wellbeing for mother and baby. Massage is offered in the pregnancy and early postnatal (after birth) period and can be combined with aromatherapy for optimum benefits and relief from any symptoms.
We at Buttercup recognise that many people could benefit from massage and as midwives we appreciate the importance of touch therapy on a physical and emotional level.
All treatments are carried out with our knowledge of the pregnant body in mind and we work with the expectant or new Mother to accommodate any specialist requirements or to target symptoms such as swelling or pain. A full consultation is completed prior to any treatment to ensure the most appropriate therapy and the best experience.
The treatments are all carried out in a relaxing environment to aid relaxation and stress relief. This can be especially helpful with birth preparation or in the early weeks following birth.
