Great service. Fantastic surroundings. Very experienced medical team.
The yoga classes I’ve attended are relaxing, accessible but also challenging in a good way. This place is a lovely haven of calm in a busy and stressful city.
We can’t think of a time when you need a body soothing treatment more than during your pregnancy.
There are many benefits to having a massage at this time. Benefits include:
- Relieving backache, headaches, pelvic pain and muscle aches
- Reducing swollen legs and ankles (common during pregnancy)
- Improving circulation
- Improving skin elasticity
- Reducing stretch marks
- Relaxation (good for keeping your hormones stable)
Please wait until you are at least 12 weeks pregnant before booking your massage and if you have had any complications it is best to refer to your GP first.
