After being pregnant herself and finding few therapists with the necessary qualifications in pregnancy massage in her locality. Claire decided to complete her Diploma in Pregnancy Full Body & Abdominal Massage. After suffering the embarrassment of falling asleep in the beauty room in those last few, tiring weeks of pregnancy Claire dreamed up the idea of a mobile pregnancy massage service so that pregnant women could simply stay in there pyjamas and go back to bed after the massage. Claire is fully qualified in pregnancy massage and works closely with The Birth Sanctuary in Bolton, a private midwifery company who would be happy to offer a reference if required prior to the appointment. Standard massage differs from pregnancy massage as the acupressure points change with the changing shape of your body. There are also certain areas that should not be stimulated during pregnancy for example acupressure points between the thumb and forefinger. A therapist trained in pregnancy massage will know this and therefore not put you or your baby in danger.
Pregnancy massage takes place in various positions and you will be supported with the use of pillows. At no point will you be asked to lie flat on your back as this is not advised during pregnancy as it can put pressure on the vena cava. More importantly the massage will be tailored to you the individual to ensure that you are comfortable with all that we do.
