Pregnancy & Fertility

“To be pregnant is to be vitally alive, thoroughly woman, and distressingly inhabited. Soul and spirit are stretched – along with body – making pregnancy a time of transition, growth, and profound beginnings.”

Anna Christian Buchanan

 Pregnancy Massage

By appointment: €60

A lovely nurturing treatment specifically tailored for pregnancy and to your particular needs.  Helps to bring ease physically, mentally and emotionally  when there are so many changes happening in your body.  Studies indicate that massage therapy performed during pregnancy can reduce anxiety, decrease symptoms of depression, relieve muscle aches and joint pains, and improve labor outcomes and newborn health. The evidence strongly suggests there are maternal and newborn health benefits when therapeutic massage is incorporated into regular prenatal care.

 

Pregnancy Reflexology

By appointment: €50

Reflexology for Pregnancy is a relaxing, nurturing treatment.  It can help to treat and often prevent  many common pregnancy related ailments, such as back ache, symhis pubis dysfunction, water retention, sciatica,  morning sickness and swelling.  It also induces deep relaxation, and is a great aid in keeping stress at bay.  There are many studies which have shown the benefits of reflexology treatments during pregnancy and in bringing about positive labor outcomes.  It is also a lovely way to take time out for yourself during this precious time, and can be a great support as you adjust and embrace the changes you are experiencing during your pregnancy.  It is very safe during your entire pregnancy.

What happens in a treatment?

You relax on a warm& conforatble massage couch, covered in a cosy blanket; gently pressure is applied to the points on the feet in a particular sequence using specific techniques, dependent on your stage of pregnancy.

Pregnancy Yoga

There are many benefits to a Yoga Practice tailored for pregnancy.  This has been shown in numerous studies.  Taking a pregnancy class can help prepare you for the road ahead, endeavouring to bring confidence in your own body during pregnancy and birth.

The class is designed for the unique set of conditions within a woman’s body during this time.  Everyone works to their own ability, being fit or flexible is not a prerequisite. All are welcome after 14 weeks.

Having completed post graduate specialized training in Yoga for Pregnancy, I am delighted to be able to guide women through a safe and effective practice during this exciting and precious time in their lives.
