Pregnancy Massage

Maternity massage

Pregnancy can be equal parts wonderful and miserable, easy and difficult, with the body and emotions feeling as though you’re on a roller-coaster of ups and downs. Nautilus offers maternity massage and antenatal reflexology treatments to help provide positive and supportive benefits during your pregnancy journey.

We strive to create a safe and confidential space where you can share your joys and concerns, highs and lows, without judgement.

Some of the common challenges that come with the many changes a woman’s body goes through during pregnancy include lower back pain, shoulder pain, hip pain, leg cramps, insomnia, low energy levels, heartburn, pelvic pain, itchy skin, and mood swings.

Relaxation plays an important role during pregnancy. A woman needs to be able to rest and recharge, to have time to focus on herself and her baby. The opportunity to relax can help reduce stress levels, which can then help improve sleep, ease aches and pains, and boost energy levels.

Pregnancy massage also boosts lymphatic drainage to help reduce swelling. Massage is useful in alleviating sciatic pain which some women can experience late in their pregnancy.

Other benefits of pregnancy massage include the reduction of lower back and shoulder pain, reducing muscle tension and tightness, relieving headaches, reducing tension or anxiety and encouraging better sleep.

Safe, comfortable massage

Depending on what stage in your pregnancy you are, your massage will most likely be performed with you laying on your side. This is to give you the safest, most comfortable position during your treatment. Your therapist will have you fully covered in a sheet so that you don’t overheat, and we can add on lightweight blankets to your comfort level. One pillow will be placed to support and cushion your knees and ankles and a second pillow will be given to you to hug or place under your bump, depending on your preference.

Our pregnancy massages generally flow starting with the left leg, arm and then that half of the back and neck. Your therapist will only uncover the area of the body they are currently working on. You will then slowly roll over and the therapist will massage the right side of your body.

Calm Beauty massage therapists are fully qualified in massage with additional training and certifications in antenatal massage.

Jenny made me feel at ease from the moment I arrived. The space is beautifully appointed and smells heavenly!!
