Benefits include: relieving stress on joints, easing pain, and helping with the postural changes associated with the progressing pregnancy. It is effective for relieving stress, sinus congestion, round ligament pain, some types of breathing restrictions, lower back pain and oedema. A relaxed mum-to-be will more than likely have an easier and healthier pregnancy, and perhaps even an easier delivery.
Celine has undertaken extended training in pregnancy massage with Suzanne Yates from Well Mother
"Having regular massage with Celine throughout my pregnancy was one of the best decisions I made. I relished not only the physical benefits (which were many, and obvious), but the dedicated time to focus solely on me and the little being growing inside me. I can't recommend it highly enough." – J. Janson
What They Have to Say
"I have been visiting Celine at Tonic regularly throughout my pregnancy for massage. The massage that Celine offers has not only been beneficial for general relaxation and wellbeing but has also helped relieve aches and strains, improve digestion and even promote better sleep. Celine always takes the time to check how I'm feeling and assess what I'd like to achieve from each visit. Celine has a very caring nature and ensures I am comfortable throughout every treatment and she is also generous with her knowledge and experience and offers me tips to keep well between visits. I'm already looking forward to my next appointment!" – K. Harris
"I've been pregnant three times and the last time was definitely the hardest - a combination of working and having two other young children to look after. Having regular massage from Celine at Tonic Massage was not just a treat for 'me' but also helped with the various aches and pains that come with carrying an extra person inside you. Celine knew exactly the positions that were comfortable, such as lying on your side rather than on your back and also some sitting massage positions. I felt I could completely trust her to look after me and my baby for the time I was with her” –V. Fisher
"I started to have massages throughout my pregnancy from four months. I went every week and longed for my appointment almost as soon as the last one had finished!! I had a terrible back and sciatica throughout my previous two pregnancies. Having Celine massage me really kept me going; my back was fine and I had no sciatica throughout this pregnancy. I felt very connected to Celine throughout my pregnancy; she just knew exactly where I was aching and sore. My baby also loved the appointments; he would turn and roll throughout my massage and I felt it was such a relaxing experience for both of us!" – Sara Browett (Mum of three!)
