What is a Pregnancy Massage?
Pregnancy Massage or prenatal massage is the ultimate relaxation experience during any stage of pregnancy. Utilising unique pregnancy bellow pillows, you will be able to lie comfortably on your stomach on the massage table, completely supported, providing safety and comfort for both mother and baby.
This position ensures that the woman’s spine is in a neutral position, thus easing pressure on the back and resulting in a better balanced massage than when lying sideways. Naturopath Pregnancy, which uses various relaxing techniques as well as some components of lymphatic drainage, not only nurtures the expectant mother, it also creates a harmonious environment for the developing embryo.

Pregnancy Massage Safety
It is generally very safe to have a massage while pregnant. Be guided by your Gynaecologist or Doctor if in doubt and be aware that there may be other options to consider if in need of relaxation.

I have been seeing Shiho for nearly 6 months. I found her really knowledgeable, caring, considerate and attention to detail. She is not just looking after the issue I have but also my “mindset” that she finds it connects to our body! She is like my soulmate who understands me a lot and gradually, she finds out the "cause" of my issue and tackle it with her treatment. I am really happy with her service and her positive energy.
