COVID19 Statement

Massage restrictions have now been lifted.  However, it is still important to continue to reduce the spread by ensuring that we implement the recommended safe distancing rules, adhere to hygiene, health, and wellbeing.  In the interests of health and safety for clients and myself, I will adhere to sanitisation and additional cleaning, as required, provide the space and time between appointments for clients to enter and exit safely.  I also request if you have any cold or flu symptoms, or just feeling unwell... please stay at home.

Pregnancy Massage

13-40 Weeks

Pregnancy Massage

Align and balance your changing body with our popular rejuvenating and rebalancing massage treatment.

A combination of slow, flowing and soothing strokes; melts away the tension and encourages deeper relaxation. The support of our unique doughnut shaped beanbag, enhances your treatment by deepening relaxation and encourages a more optimal position for your baby.

The addition of some trigger point therapy, acupressure and gentle stretches; makes this treatment more remedial focused. This may assist with musculo-skeletal imbalances ie. sciatica, pelvic girdle and hip pain, leg cramps, restless legs and mild oedema or upper back, shoulder, rib, neck and jaw pain, sinus pressure and headaches.

If this is your first Bellies and Bubs experience, we recommend a longer treatment for your initial appointment, to discuss and address any pre-existing conditions or current health concerns.

Our Signature Balancing treatments are more suited for the 3rd trimester to assist with baby’s position, engaging in the pelvis and prepare for a physiological labour and birth.

Please be aware, HICAPS isn’t available, however provider recognition is available for all health funds EXCEPT Defence Health.

Birth In Balance Treatment

What better way to approach your baby’s ‘birth’day than with our blissful balancing, nurturing and preparatory birth treatment.

This treatment is recommended from 37 weeks, particularly if aiming for a VBAC.

Beginning with an individually tailored massage treatment to assess any structural and muscular imbalances. Applying trigger point therapy and acupressure, helps to create a symmetrical bowl for baby to access the pelvic inlet, align well in the mid-pelvis and start to efface the cervix, continuing balanced through the pelvic outlet.

Acupressure points are stimulated further with moxibustion to begin to prime the body for labour. Labour positions most appropriate for your pelvic space are also discussed; for those aiming for an active labour and birth.

Although the nature of this treatment is to stimulate the uterus and cervix, it is also calming and nurturing and therefore reduces adrenalin and helps to increase the release of oxytocin which peaks closer to 40 weeks.
