With individualized massage treatments that focus on nurturing both mother and baby and by reflecting on what is occurring for each client, at each visit, I am able to massage clients safely and confidently.

NurtureLife® Pregnancy Massage can address the various physical challenges of pregnancy that often cause discomfort, stress, and anxiety. It can act as an overall tonic and increase the expectant mother’s body awareness. Some of the many benefits of pregnancy massage are:

  • Helps to soothe and relax nervous tension, helping the mother-to-be to sleep more easily and more deeply
  • Relieves discomforts experienced during pregnancy such as backaches, hip pain, leg cramps, oedema, carpal tunnel etc.
  • Promotes greater vitality and less fatigue
  • Relaxes tense muscles, tones loose muscles, and can increase muscular flexibility – flexibility will be most helpful during the last trimester and birth itself

As a NurtureLife® Pregnancy Massage Practitioner, I am able to offer positive and nurturing support for the mother-to-be during this very exciting time.

Labour Preparation

Massage can offer a wonderful support to the labouring woman, whether the partner or a designated support person performs it. Touch is soothing, calming and what connects us.

Throughout pregnancy, it is important for women to focus on increasing leg and pelvic flexibility in preparation for labour. Women need flexibility in order to labour efficiently and comfortably.

NurtureLife® for labour looks at how to best prepare the body to move through the waves of change in labour, while maintaining the mind-body-birth-baby-connection.

NurtureLife® techniques offer a set of specialised skills for the birth partner to easily adapt and utilise with the labouring woman.
Private sessions for couples, or mother-to-be and birth support person, are offered as part of NurtureLife® treatment. These sessions instill confidence in both the pregnant mother and the partner/support person. You can learn different massage techniques for various birthing scenarios.

Sessions are tailored to your needs whether you are a first time mother or already have children.

Postnatal Massage

The early postnatal period is a time for your body to readjust and recover from the birth and pregnancy. New motherhood is both joyful and exhausting, as the body is undergoing many changes. It is an important time to enhance the mother’s physical and emotional wellbeing through a variety of methods, again focusing on massage.

The new mother needs to nurture herself as she nurtures and enjoys her baby. Postnatal massage promotes early recovery and a smooth transition into new motherhood.

Some of the benefits of NurtureLife® Postnatal Massage are:

  • Promotes greater vitality and less fatigue for mothers
  • Helps soothe nervous tension resulting in improved sleep
  • Reduces baby blues and the sense of anxiety and stress
  • helps regain strength and eases muscle tension
  • relieves the breast feeding posture, relaxing the neck and shoulders
  • Reduces swelling
  • Strengthens and tones abdominal muscles

The Resting Month packages (Postnatal Home packages)

I have been thinking a lot about the benefits of Traditional Chinese Medicine & massage in the postnatal period and how I am constantly seeing women throughout their pregnancy for support and then when the baby comes along, they really struggle with finding time for self-care. Traditionally in many cultures, particularly in the East women had 40 days with her baby to overcome exhaustion, restore vitality and bond with her new baby. This is known as the Zuo Yue Zi “The Resting Month”.

In our modernised world, Mum is often overlooked as her new baby is the focus and this period of adjustment may be very isolating. She needs all the love, care and support she can get in this most precious time.

“It takes a village to raise a child”, but we need the village to look after the mother too, so she can do her best. “Nourish the mother to nourish the baby”.
