Aromatherapy Massage for Pregnancy
Aromatherapy massage is an important part of self-care during pregnancy, and also postnatally to nurture new mothers as they recover from birth and adjust to the demands of motherhood.
At Growing Bones we allow for longer massage appointment times to provide a nurturing and relaxing treatment with a special focus on a woman’s physical and psychological needs during pregnancy. Aromatherapy massage supports the changing body and is valuable for birth preparation.
Growing Bones stocks Mother Nurture aromatherapy products including Lovely Legs (for varicose veins), Pregnancy Massage and Perineum oil, Friend in Labour essential oil blend, plus many others.
Aromatherapy massage and related treatments:
Regular physical massage has many benefits. It can improve muscle and joint function, enhance circulation, and relieve both physical and mental tension. So often it’s the mental and emotional strain we experience that affects our physical health!
Sonya offers three kinds of massage services:
The list of benefits for infant massage is extensive, including improved sleep, relief of colic and reflux and enhanced immunity. Infant massage is also valuable for mum & dad as it enhances the bonding process and can help prevent or reduce postnatal depression. Infant massage classes include introductory sessions and 3 week courses in small groups or private classes.
Aromatherapy Massage for Everyone
Much more than a massage, this nurturing, aromatic treatment will leave you feeling relaxed and rejuvenated. Time is precious these days. Sonya encourages you to really let go and disconnect from the world with a combination of essential oils and massage specific to your needs.
