I qualified as an Aromatherapist and Therapeutic Masseurs in 1991 (ifparoma.org) and from the Institute of Traditional Herbal Medicine & Aromatherapy (including Reflexology) for treating Obstetrics in 1999.
Some clients seem to find more benefit from Maternity reflexology for specific pregnancy related ailments.
My massage treatment combines traditional techniques and usually essential oils dispersed in a carrier oil. You will benefit from the therapeutic effect of the oils, as well as the truly relaxing nature of the massage itself. The massage is specifically designed to minimise discomfort in pregnancy. A full consultation will be taken at your first appointment; this will help me choose the best essential oils for you. I can then prepare a bespoke blend for your treatment. Massage during pregnancy can assist with aches and pains; help you connect with your baby and improve circulation. Postnatal massage is something that is often overlooked but it can be very beneficial to your recovery and general well being after the birth of your baby. You can even bring the baby with you at Harvest Moon Practice!
Aromatherapy adds another dimension to pregnancy massage
Aromatherapy is the therapeutic use of concentrated plant essences. Administered during the massage it is especially beneficial during pregnancy to add support and nurturing. With my mindful and knowledgeable application, the essential oils are a very effective, safe and gentle way of relieving many ailments
I use a specially designed system of cushions (at Harvest Moon contact link) that enable you to lie in supreme comfort often not experienced since pre-pregnant days. I always use the purest of mostly organic oils to pamper, restore, invigorate or relax depending on what you require.
