Healing the emotional and physical body
The healing gift of touch during your pregnancy and postpartum recovery

Massage plays an integral part of prenatal and postnatal care.

We know that touch "feels good" and science backs us up: skin stimulation mobilises "feel good" hormones that counteract  stress and oxytocin, the "bounding and loving hormone" that - among others - improves the functioning of the placenta as well as stimulates and speeds up contractions of the uterine wall, crucial both during childbirth and postpartum.

The second trimester is the best moment to start receiving regular massages and you can book regular appointments until the end of your postpartum window; massage alleviates as well as releases the physical and emotional tensions stored in your tissues.
