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. Pregnancy massage, 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.
For instance, reiki, a short lymphatic drainage massage of the legs or even a gentle reflexology or head and face massage may be recommended by your doctor. Regarding the use of essential oils, only a weak blend of citrus oils will be used such as lemon, mandarin or orange, not only safe but invigorating and relaxing at the same time.
I was in the midst of a personal crisis, or what I believed was a personal crisis, I turned to Daniel for help, and was introduced to MiCBT... MiCBT taught me how to deal with negative thoughts, in a positive way, without medication. MiCBT is now in practice every day of my life, I owe a lot to its teacher, and its design.
Our business would not be the same, the magic you wield and the results you have made with us are truly incredible. You have an amazing ability to get to the core of a situation and gently but firmly guide us to resolve and heal this.
I am no longer on painkillers and I haven't had to go to the hospital. The pain is something in my past. The pain relief wasn't immediate but I had waited 15 years so for me it was immediate. I noticed a decrease in pain straight away and it continued to lessen as time went on.
Exactly what I wanted, I blissed out and relaxed, what a great way to start the weekend. I loved the dim lighting, soothing music, warm towels and warm massage table... brilliant practitioner and friendly, professional atmosphere.
I have been hive free for over three months and I am able to reintroduce the foods that were causing problems as well as continuing on important supplements and vitamins that promote a good immune system and nutrients. I have not felt this good in a very long time. I am completely back to the confident and happy person that I have always been.
After my treatment I felt like my whole body was moving and supporting itself to move more naturally.
As my naturopath, confidant, and mentor, Daniel has guided me to explore all of life's possibilities and strive for freedom. For his unconditional support and encouragement, I will remain eternally thankful.
I feel the best I have felt in years. I have more energy and my mood and concentration have improved considerably. Not to mention getting my cycle back which I hadn't had for a couple of years.
