Pregnancy is a special event in a woman’s life and throughout the 9 months, her body deals with many changes; physically and emotionally.
Massage is a wonderful tool to assist during this time. Over the years Heidi has had many pregnant women benefit from her treatments. She has the excellent grounding from UK experts such as Denise Tiran on how to approach each woman individually.
Each massage is different and tailored to the mother’s current stage of pregnancy. For instance, during particular massages, lymph drainage and reflex points are worked to deal with issues such as sluggish lymphatic flow (swollen ankles). When constipation becomes an issue during pregnancy, Heidi will incorporate reflexology techniques in to the pregnancy massage. When back and hip discomfort occurs during pregnancy, once again Heidi will ensure the mum-to-be is treated holistically and will target areas of need.
Heidi always maintains high professional standards and holds her duty of care very seriously. So if she feels you may need a GP consent before proceeding with treatments, this is due to the standards and code of ethics outlined from her training over the years and current guidelines from the Australian Association of Massage Therapists (AAMT).
