Sensitive pregnancy massage

by Emily

Regina is a highly sensitive massage therapist. I started sessions late in my pregnancy (35 weeks) and have been enjoying weekly massages that are both relaxing and good for relieving pain and tension.

Regina has a very intuitive and refined touch: she seems to be able to find just that spot that needs work and applies the perfect amount of pressure. This works well when I've identified painful areas in advance, but often areas of tension only come to light during the massage, which are then worked out. The massages have provided relief in my legs after experiencing regular night cramps, have eased ligament pain in my abdomen, and have relaxed pain and tension in my achy hips. Regina has even managed to ease some peculiar feelings (not pain, but more like a muscular memory of trauma), that I had around a scar above my knee that I previously couldn't bear to be touched. In some sessions I have not requested specific areas to address, simply needing some general relaxing touch, and these have been equally therapeutic: I often wish they wouldn't end.

Each session has started with abdominal massage and this feels like a lovely way to connect with my baby. Regina's sensitivity means I am confident to continue with her massages beyond my estimated due date as they have such a positive effect on both my physical and mental wellbeing. Beyond that I will certainly book for post-natal massage and look forward to all the benefits that will bring.
