Pregnancy Massage

Pregnancy Massage NewcastleIf you are pregnant, heartfelt congratulations to you and your loved ones. This is such an exciting time, with every pregnancy being an amazing and individual journey. I would like to invite you to experience the relief and joy that a quality pregnancy massage brings. I encourage you to include regular massage as part of your pregnancy care plan. You will enjoy relief from pain and love the quality of sleep that follows. Allowing extra care and support for yourself during this time brings a multitude of benefits to you and your baby. I personally guarantee you will feel these benefits filter through all areas of your body, mind, spirit and life. If you are newly pregnant, have recently had your baby or have pushed on until their first birthday there is no better time than now to take time out for yourself and have a well-deserved healing massage.
