What is Pregnancy Massage?
The most important time when you need to relax and unwind is during pregnancy. Let our expertly trained therapists look after you. Don’t worry about the do’s and don’ts we know them all; where to avoid, what to avoid and when to avoid. Before any treatment your therapist will go through a full consultation to discuss and concerns, or contra-indications you may have. All of our treatments can be customised to suit you during your pregnancy.
How Can Pregnancy Massage help me?
The perfect treatment for mother’s to be and can be enjoyed from 12 weeks of pregnancy. The therapeutic benefits of massage for pregnant women are vast. There’s evidence that pregnancy massage may help people who suffer from low back pain and possibly those with chronic headaches would benefit from a massage during pregnancy. Pregnancy massage may decrease stress and promote relaxation, helping you cope with discomfort even if it doesn’t prevent it.
Carrying a baby you changes your centre of gravity and puts a lot of stress on your back, neck, abdominal muscles, and shoulders. Pregnancy Back Massage also relaxes your ligaments, so that your pelvic joints are less stable, and changes your posture, pulling your pelvis forward. Add to that the extra weight you’re carrying and you’ve got yourself an aching lower back.

Pregnancy Client Testimonials
“….my pre-natal massage with Alanna at Heaven Therapy in Cullercoats. I always look forward to this as I come away feeling heaps better. Alanna is fully qualified in pre-natal massage and reflexology and has really helped me with my sickness and my aches and pains. Afterwards my body definitely felt a lot better and all the tension had gone.” Kelly
“I have been going quite regularly to heaven therapy since November 2012 from when I was 4 months pregnant to receive pregnancy massages Newcastle as I suffered really badly with SPD in my 1st pregnancy that I had to walk with crutches the last few months. I had been informed that subsequent pregnancies can make the SPD worse! Reading online that massage could help, I booked in with Alanna.
“Massages helped ease labour and to give birth naturally to a 10lb 6oz baby!”
Alanna is very professional and friendly. She carefully listens every session of where the aches and pains are and is excellent at getting those tough knots out. Throughout my pregnancy, I did get pelvic pain but I did not need crutches to walk about! It was not as bad as my 1st pregnancy, and, in my opinion I owe the fact that I could still get around with minimum pain to the pregnancy massages, which made me walk out there feeling weightless. The fact that I was relaxed and de-stressed from having the massages, I feel it helped me have a relatively easy labour and to give birth naturally to a 10lbs 6oz baby! The atmosphere at heaven therapy is very welcoming and friendly. I recommend that all pregnant ladies even just try 1 massage I guarantee they’ll be back for more! I can’t wait to go back now for some relaxing me-time massage.” Donxdon1980, on Tripadvisor, June 18th, 2013
