Welcome to Pregnancy or Facial Massage

Massage can help stimulate the soft tissue, move the extra fluid, and reduce the swelling, leaving you feeling more comfortable. When your feet, legs, and hands start swelling during pregnancy, it is often caused by reduced circulation and increased pressure on the major blood vessels.




Stress can hit during pregnancy and post-natally same as it does during other times in your life. It has impacts on your sleep patterns, energy levels, mood, and immune system, making you more susceptible to illness. Relaxation treatments like massage, Reiki healing can help you reduce your stress levels, improve your response to stress, allow you to rest, re-energize, manage everything a bit better and actively boost your immune system.




Tension headaches can occur during pregnancy, just as they can normally. Often this is postural and due to muscle tension. Deep tissue pregnancy massage can help address your tension headaches.

Oxygen facials can increase circulation, promote cellular renewal, and plump out fine lines and wrinkles (in case you need even more plumping!). Hydrating facials use moisture-rich treatments and products to drench pregnancy-parched skin.

Facials are safe for expecting mothers, but not all services that are offered by an aestheticism may be safe. Skin is extra sensitive during pregnancy, so you may need to save the more intense treatments for after your due date.

Massage is generally considered safe in pregnancy.  You will need to adjust your position on the massage table.  As your belly grows, it’s important not to lie flat on your back for long periods.  Lying flat causes the pregnant uterus to compress the large vein in the abdomen.  This can make you feel sick or pass out.  A professional massage therapist with pregnancy experience will be aware of this and use alternative positions.
