PREGNANCY MASSAGE

Bringing a new life into the world is a joyous, challenging and miraculous experience! As a mother-to-be, you can feel worried, anxious or stressed. Your body undergoes many changes, which can cause discomfort. Massage is a perfect way to reduce stress and promote wellbeing.

Massage during pregnancy is not intended to replace the care provided by your doctor or midwife. However, I can work in collaboration with them to provide additional physical and emotional support.

Pregnancy massage benefits

  • reduces stress and promotes relaxation, helping mothers-to-be to get a better night’s sleep
  • reduces oedema (fluid build-up), blood pressure, relieves varicose veins and increases lymph and blood flow
  • reduces muscle and joint pain, including backache, cramps, carpal tunnel syndrome and pelvic girdle pain (PGP)
  • facilitates hormonal, respiratory, gastrointestinal, urinary and other physiological processes, which occur in pregnancy.
    Data also suggests that depressed pregnant women and their offspring can benefit from massage therapy and that it decreases anxious behaviour in postnatal mothers, which in turn helps with bonding and general wellbeing.

What happens during a pregnancy massage?

Pregnancy massage uses a mixture of Swedish body massage, Shiatsu techniques, and any other sports massage techniques I feel you may benefit from on that day to help you.
It is performed whilst lying on your side on a massage table, which is padded for comfort. Cushions are placed under your ‘bump’ and in between your ankle and knees, to support your bump and balance the pelvis.

I use 100% organic wax and oil which is safe for you and your baby. The wax I use is unperfumed which some mums prefer if they are finding different smells cause them an issue. The massage oil I use is from Neal’s Yard and made specifically for Pregnant and Postnatal Mothers. It is beautifully aromatic, infused with relaxing Neroli, uplifting Mandarin and sweet almond essential oils as well as vitamin E rich Wheatgerm oil.

Depending on why you would like this treatment, I will either treat your whole body or target a particular area, such as your lower back and pelvis. We will discuss this during our initial consultation, where I will also ask you about your history and assess your posture. I may do some special orthopaedic tests to ascertain what might be causing you discomfort.

I use a large sheet and towel to cover you, and various smaller towels for certain areas. Only the area being massaged at the time is uncovered.

I do include the bump within the full body massage, which Mothers enjoy as do the babies who often have a little move around whilst its being performed.

Massage in late pregnancy

In late pregnancy, or to treat specific back pain, the back can be massaged whilst the mother leans over a Pilates ball. Also, from around 38 weeks, specific pressure points can be stimulated to prepare the mother for labour.

I can also make up a specific blend of dōTERRA oils for you which can be used during the massage, but also to carry on using at home to either massage with or just to apply onto the skin (wrist, soles of feet, neck and spine) or smell to carry on getting the benefits. I am able to make up a blend which can be extremely useful at the end of pregnancy and in labour itself to encourage and support the body to birth. 

Rollerball blends are made up specifically for your requirements, and sold in 10ml bottles starting at £20. Cost is dependant on which oils are used in the blend. 

Pelvic girdle pain and other musculoskeletal problems

I work with many ladies with pelvic girdle pain, or PGP (formally known as SPD or symphysis pubis dysfunction) and other musculoskeletal problems. I have an extensive knowledge of PGP in particular having written my dissertation on this subject. I am also able to help with Carpal Tunnel syndrome and can use techniques such as Lymphatic drainage to help with swelling in the hands and feet which can come with oedema.

After checking your posture, and discussing alignment or possible causes of the pain, I will use advanced massage techniques to work the muscle groups or areas requiring treatment.

TESTIMONIAL:

“I would highly recommend using Tanya during pregnancy. After discovering her during my first pregnancy, I didn’t hesitate to get in touch with her when I became pregnant with my second child. I’ve been to many spas/salons but Tanya is by far the best massage I’ve ever had. That coupled with her expertise means that she can work on specific areas and her massages always left me feeling relaxed and fab! Also, her ability to listen and connect with you as a person is a unique skill and gave me complete confidence in her work. I would recommend her to anyone!”
Jill, Northampton

“I started seeing Tanya during my pregnancy, five years ago. She sorted my body out and eliminated the aches and pains I was receiving. I still see her regularly all these years later, even though pregnancy is a mere memory and I have a four year old, which shows just how much I value her healing hands and advice on stretches.”
Helen, Northampton

“I found Tanya through the Olney Notice Board back in March this year as I was looking for someone experienced in pregnancy massage. This was (and is still at 8 month pregnant) my first pregnancy and I have been having regular massages and attended two x five weeks sessions of her prenatal exercise classes. I cannot recommend her services and expertise enough! Tanya is excellent at what she does. Her pregnancy massages are incredibly effective for easing any tension and stress, and she really takes the time to understand your personal needs and tailors her approach. She is incredibly knowledgable and provides brilliant advice from a range of sources.”
Rohan Wedge

“I used Tanya for a massage twice before the birth of my son, I wanted to bring the labour on if I could, but also had some aches and pains from carrying my bump as it grew. She was fantastic, so knowledgable about the right areas to apply pressure to alleviate stress and pain. I walked away from my first massage knowing I would be going back. And it was so refreshing to have a massage intended to help my pre natal body. Instead of the standard massages I had been going to at various Spa’s. Highly recommend Tanya. The second massage happened and very shortly after I went into labour. I’m convinced it helped my body relax. Now I’m planning to go for a post natal.”

POSTNATAL OFFERINGS

POSTNATAL MASSAGE

Postnatal massage can be given as soon after the birth as the mother requires. You can have this massage either lying on your side or front and back, depending on how soon it is after the birth, and what position is most comfortable. I will use pillows and cushions to support your breasts, tummy and pelvis if needed to make you as comfortable as we can.

You can have this massage either lying on your side or front and back, depending on how soon it is after the birth, and what position is most comfortable. I will use pillows and cushions to support your breasts, tummy and pelvis if needed to make you as comfortable as we can.

If you wish, your baby can be with you, as I do have a chair which rocks and vibrates which may keep baby happy. Some Mothers also like to have their baby lying next to them which is possible as my bed is extra wide to cater for this.

If you may want some quiet time to yourself, that is also fine and we can hopefully work around this, finding suitable time for both of us!

This quiet time can be very important for a new Mother especially after the labour and initial Postnatal period.

What happens during a Postnatal Massage?

The massage uses a variety of techniques dependant on what the mother requires and the reason for her requesting a massage. As previously stated, It is performed either side-lying or as normal lying on back and front. This is dependant on how the Mother is feeling, if breastfeeding or C-section scar is feeling sore or whether there are any lower back issues where lying prone would be more uncomfortable. I use organic wax which is unperfumed and perfectly safe to breastfeed with or be close to baby with for those Mothers who would like no scent. However,

I can also make up a blend of dōTERRA oils to be used during the massage to make it bespoke to your needs and requirements. They are safe to use whilst breastfeeding your baby. These oils work on an emotional level as well as physical, and can be used by smelling them, diffusing them as well as topically on the skin. 

If you would like a specific rollerball made up for you to take home with after your massage, I can blend some into a 10 ml rollerball, which can be used on your wrists, soles of feet, neck, down your spine as well as in your hands and breathed in! Rollerballs start at £20 for a 10ml bottle. Cost is dependant on which oils are used in your blend. 

The treatment can either be a full body massage or problem area-specific, but will be determined after consulting the Mother to ensure her requirements are met. You may want your time out to relax or you may be concerned about niggles, so this time is yours to chose how you want it spent.

Up to six weeks after birth (approximately)

I can help to relieve aches and pains that are pregnancy, labour or posture-related.
I can also help with

  • feeding positions
  • recommending some early breathing techniques and exercises to start moving the body
  • pelvic floor exercises
  • treat mastitis or engorged breasts, using specific massage and lymphatic drainage

From six weeks after birth

I can:

  • help to relieve tightness or pulling on caesarean section scars once it has healed
  • help with any digestion/constipation problems post-birth
  • give 1-1 advice on realigning the body’s posture, using myofascial release and other advanced massage techniques
  • give advice on breathing patterns which may have developed whilst pregnant because the uterus pushed the lungs up and restricted breathing
  • discuss and check for diastasis recti (abdominal separation), and pelvic floor discomfort or dysfunction
  • discuss any worries you may have and help you make some small but effective changes to standing, sitting and carrying
  • discuss good nutrition which can help you heal and recover
  • prescribe some exercises personally for you and your needs.

Postnatal massage benefits

  • A specific massage can be started immediately after birth.
  • Aids healing after caesarean

“Post pregnancy and after having a c-section I was more misaligned than I realised until I had a massage off Tanya. She was great as assessed my stance and overall body before working on areas which I wouldn’t have thought were linked to my back pain at all but they were. She released tension I didn’t even know that I had and gave me exercises to do to maintain the correct posture and avoid further back pain. Her knowledge and magic hands helped me recover far quicker than I know I otherwise would have done. I will definitely be using Tanya again after my next pregnancy”
Jo, Turvey

c section treatment

POSTNATAL OFFERINGS

C Section Recovery Treatment

This session is suitable for you whether your scar is recently healed or many years old. Scar tissue can cause internal pulling we may never be aware of until niggles become issues.

This session is suitable for you whether your scar is recently healed or many years old. Scar tissue can cause internal pulling we may never be aware of until niggles become issues. The pull can extend to the neck, shoulder or as far down as the ankle. This treatment will allow you some more movement/less tension as well as improving the look of the scar itself. 

This is a 90 minute session involving a mix of techniques to asses and treat the body. 

It will include: 

  • Assessment of your Pelvic Floor engagement and contraction through movement assessment and questions 
  • Assessment of your breathing patterns to encourage correct and optimal use of the breath and connecting it to the pelvic floor and core 
  • Assessing for a Diastasis Recti, treating if necessary and showing you self massage techniques to use at home, as well as some exercise techniques to help 
  • Soft tissue techniques of the scar and surrounding local area as well as the whole body if necessary. 
  • Discussion about nutrition and the healing qualities of certain food 

I usually recommend having at least 3 sessions to get the most out of the session. It is very rare for scars to feel completely better after one session. Subsequent sessions can be an hour or half hour depending on the outcome of the first session.

SCARWORK THERAPY

Many clients with scars and scar tissue benefit from having the Reconnect & Thrive’ session, where I can assess the body as a whole, looking at posture, breathing, movement patterns and compensations. This allows me to work with the body as a whole’ rather than just the scar and local area. 

scarwork-therapy

Reconnect & Thrive

The ultimate aim of this session is for you to feel the very best version of you, so that you feel strong, capable and happy in YOUR body!

This is a 1-1 offering for women who want a session which goes deeper, involving a full body analysis, specialist bespoke massage, along with nutrition and hydration guidance, taking everything their body has been through and is currently doing, and being able to walk away understanding their body better and with a plan of action! Having also certified as a Specialist Wellness Coach post Hysterectomy and for the Peri/Post Menopausal stage I am also able to help through this period too, advising on positive nutrition and lifestyle habits.

This session is for you if:

  • Setting yourself some achievable goals

You will be given stretching and strengthening exercises to do at home to assist you, with videos to back this up and receive a handled resistance band and trigger point ball to take home to use to help.

myofascial-release-therapy

MYOFASCIAL RELEASE

Myofascial release is a non-invasive treatment using a small amount of wax. This treatment loosens restricted connective tissue or fascia.

Fascia has the appearance of a spiders web and is densely woven, covering every muscle, bone, nerve, artery, vein and internal organ in the body. It is one continuous sheath running from head to toe without interruption so each part of the body is connected by the fascia.

Myofascial restrictions are produced by trauma, surgical operations, or even through bad posture learnt over time. The fascia sticks to the muscles causing restrictions. A high percentage of people suffering with pain or lack of motion may be having fascia problems which won’t be solved through regular massage. It may clear up temporarily but can return once the fascia tightens again.

A variety of techniques are used either ‘directly’ or ‘indirectly’, and either or both may be used, depending on the condition and the desired effect.

It is particularly effective for treating fibromyalgia, and chronic fatigue syndrome, as well as any injuries where there may be scar tissue, or acute and chronic pain.

I also work with clients using structural realigning techniques with the fascia to aid with postural rebalancing.

TESTIMONIALS:

“I recently received a massage from Tanya using Myofascial work. I was at first a little sceptical having only ever had deep tissue massage, but this was so much more than just a massage! I have ‘hung’ onto physical and emotional aches for many years, that I have received massage, counselling and Chiropractic treatment for but always felt something was missing. This massage did all 3 things in one! I have a feeling of being unravelled from a tight coil. I would highly recommend a massage with Tanya. She truly gives more than just a massage!!”
Pauline, Bozeat

“Tanya has been treating me for more than 10 years for chronic back pain and more recently stiffness. She is patient, kind and extremely good at finding and relieving problem areas and her massage technique is brilliant.” e!”
Jill, Northampton

postnatal-massage

Advanced Clinical Massage

SOFT TISSUE RELEASE

Muscles are made up of strands of fibres, lying neatly together. These fibres can become damaged, congested and tangled, which causes movement restriction and pain.

Soft tissue release increases the range of movement, relieves pain and prevents, repairs and manages injuries.

It involves using manual pressure on a muscle to create a temporary false attachment point and then taking the muscle into a pain-free stretch to untangle the muscle fibres.

abdominal-massage

Advanced Clinical Massage

TRIGGER POINT THERAPY

A trigger point is a point of tenderness within a muscle. They are felt as tense bands of tissue in muscles and tendons. They can cause pain either in the immediate area where they are found, or refer pain to another part of the body.

For example, if a client presents with pain down the side of the head in a question mark shape pattern, I would be looking for trigger points in the trapezius muscle in the shoulder.

A trigger point is a point of tenderness within a muscle. They are felt as tense bands of tissue in muscles and tendons. They can cause pain either in the immediate area where they are found, or refer pain to another part of the body.

For example, if a client presents with pain down the side of the head in a question mark shape pattern, I would be looking for trigger points in the trapezius muscle in the shoulder.

Trigger points are caused by:

  • overload strain
  • direct trauma to the muscle
  • poor posture
  • repetitive activities
  • physical, mental or emotional stress.

This therapy involves putting gentle pressure on a specific trigger point, to release the muscle and affected tissues. Trigger point therapy is particularly effective when used together with myofascial release, by working on the surrounding fascia and soft tissue.

Whilst working, I will rely on communicating with you on the level of discomfort that the trigger point gives you, and whether it changes in any way with pressure.

advanced-clinical-sports-massage

Advanced Clinical Massage

STRETCHING

Most treatments will involve some form of stretching during and/or after the massage. This stretches out the muscles which have been worked and found to have trigger points, or that are tight and restricted.

Some clients have a session of mainly stretching to help keep them flexible and mobile. This benefits people of all ages.

There are several stretching techniques that I use:

  • Passive Stretching– performed whilst you lie still, and I gently stretch the muscles worked. I will put the muscle into its fullest range of motion and sustain the stretch for at least 30 seconds, taking into consideration your flexibility and pain threshold.

  • Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation (PNF) or Muscle Energy Technique (MET)– the muscle involved is stretched for four to six seconds. It is then allowed to relax and then extended further. This process carries on until a maximum stretch has been reached. Resistance to the stretch during the hold helps to increase the stretch outcome.

  • Active Isolated Stretching –a technique developed by Aaron Mattes, using active movement and the theory of reciprocal inhibition to achieve greater flexibility. This stretch involves moving the muscle into the maximum stretch and then taking it slightly further for one and a half to two seconds, and then returning it to the starting position. This can also be performed using a rope or band to stretch the muscle. The whole sequence is repeated eight to ten times. This technique improves range of motion, and increases and maintains flexibility.
oncology-massage

ONCOLOGY MASSAGE

One of the biggest myths about working with people with cancer is that massage will spread it, which is sadly why people often don’t approach those of us trained to receive some hands on treatment which would help relax. I had the greatest pleasure of treating my own Father to some sessions, and I realised then the difference it could make to someone’s wellbeing.

One of the biggest myths about working with people with cancer is that massage will spread it, which is sadly why people often don’t approach those of us trained to receive some hands on treatment which would help relax. I had the greatest pleasure of treating my own Father to some sessions, and I realised then the difference it could make to someone’s wellbeing.

The training I have undertaken allows me not only to work with people recovering from cancer but with active cancer also. So anyone going through Chemotherapy, Radiation or still undergoing cancer treatment is able to come and receive a session. I am able to treat clients alongside them receiving their hospital care.

The session will be bespoke to your current needs on that day. I am able to use a variety of different massage techniques as well as Reflexology, and may use a whole combination depending on what’s required. It will include:

  • Taking into account the most comfortable position for you to receive the treatment. This may be lying down on your back or side, seated, or seated with the back down to a comfortable level. I have cushions and bolsters which can be used to make sure you are as comfortable as I can get you to be.
  • Taking into account the possibility of stoma bags, Hickman lines and healing operations sites. Again, your comfort is important to enable you to relax.
  • Side effects of your treatment may mean coming in first thing in the morning to avoid any smells of oils in the room which you may find unpleasant. The room will also be clean and fresh, which will prevent any cross infection from another client.
  • The waxes (oils) I use are organic, vegan and can be scented or unscented to your choice.
  • I can also make up a blend of dōTERRA oils to be used during the massage to make it bespoke to your needs and requirements. They are safe to use whilst undergoing Chemotherapy, and some can help with the side effects, like nausea. These oils work on an emotional level as well as physical, and can be used by smelling them, diffusing them as well as topically on the skin. 

    If you would like a specific rollerball made up for you to take home with after your massage, I can blend some into a 10 ml rollerball, which can be used on your wrists, soles of feet, neck, down your spine as well as in your hands and breathed in! Rollerballs start at £20 for a 10ml bottle. Cost is dependant on which oils are used in your blend. 

How will Massage help me?

One of the main reasons people come for a massage is to make them feel relaxed or to ease some aches or pains. Massage from a Therapist is a positive, caring touch that is very different from the touch in hospital. A listening ear away from family and friends, or a quiet non-judgmental space to switch off and be themselves. Massage Therapy is touch because you want it rather than need it, which makes a massive difference. Many clients have told me how lovely it is just to have some soft, gentle touch which is something they may not have received for a while.

A massage will generally help to relax you, which will in turn help improve your sleep, lift your mood and help you feel a little more yourself. It can help you cope with stress, anxiety, headaches and pain, Chemotherapy related nausea, and cancer fatigue.

Scar tissue work

Once the scar itself has healed I am able to work with any scar tissue which is causing you issues. Many women find after having a lumpectomy, mastectomy or removal of nodes that their range of movement is restricted and they can have pain in the shoulder or around the scar itself. Restrictions can also cause issues with breathing deeply, by restricting a full, comfortable breath. I am able to work with the soft tissue around the shoulder, ribs and diaphragm to ease the restrictions and bring back movement to the shoulder which is comfortable and a better range. I can also work with the scar itself, if it feels tight, is pulling or puckering in anyway. This is a very gentle way to work and you should not feel any pain at all. I work with this area when you feel comfortable and ready to have it treated.

TESTIMONIALS:

“Tanya was both professional and friendly during the massage. This was my first massage since being diagnosed. It was very relaxing, and since the only people I had contact with were medical it was nice to have a human touch from someone who was helping me in a non medical way”
Sara

“Tanya has helped me so much in the 2 sessions I’ve had so far. I am recovering from 2 breast cancer surgeries, chemotherapy and radiotherapy. I am in constant pain and had much reduced shoulder movement. She has helped me to relax, reduced my pain and increased the movement hugely in my shoulder already. Visiting her is incredibly therapeutic, both physically and emotionally.
I have never experienced anything like it. Tanya is literally amazing!”
Lindsay

Hot-stone-massage

Hot Stone Massage

Applying hot and cold can be used within a massage if it could benefit the treatment. It can help to treat sporting injuries and musculoskeletal pain.

Applying hot and cold can be used within a massage if it could benefit the treatment. It can help to treat sporting injuries and musculoskeletal pain.

Cold helps to reduce swelling, decrease inflammation and pain and can be used to treat acute injuries.

Heat can help to relax tight muscles and other connective soft tissues and is used to treat chronic or older conditions.

I use basalt massage stones which have the ability to conduct heat. The stones are used during the massage to warm and relax the muscles and the body. They can be used within a treatment to relax tight muscles specifically or as a treatment on their own. The stones are used held within the hands and used either within long stokes or to work a specific area. They are not left on the skin at any time, but can be used over towels to keep an area warm.

TESTIMONIAL:

“Thank You so much Tanya for my amazing hot stone massage! You’ve made all my aches & pains disappear! I would highly recommend this relaxing treatment!”

RELAXING MASSAGE

Do you feel you would benefit from some time out from the worId and life just for an hour or so?

Do you want a massage that is relaxing to both body and mind but is more than just a salon massage? I will use my knowledge and experience of the body to ensure this massage is tailored specifically for you and your needs on that day.

Having time to ourself can be so difficult to find when we live in a world that involves time schedules and routine. I have many clients who come to me specifically to have a massage to quieten the mind and find that the repercussions of this time can go on for a long time.

I can offer you some space to yourself to truly relax and unwind and find some quiet within life’s busy day. You have a choice from dōTERRA aromatherapy oils, which can be mixed to help your body at that moment in time, or some organic non-scented massage wax, if you are still breast feeding and don’t want to detract from your ‘smell’.

The oils can be made up specifically for you, to what you need on that day to help you get the most out of your session with me. This blend can then be made up into a rollerball for you to take home to keep using if you so wish. Blends of oils in a rollerball start at £20 for a 10ml bottle, depending on which oils are used. This rollerball can be used on your wrists, soles of your feet, neck or down your spine to keep benefitting from the oils. 

You can request having hot stones used within the massage for part or all of the session, but this will need to be booked so they are ready for your appointment.

I can use music to help you zone out and switch off and enjoy a massage to your preferred pressure and length of time, either 60 minutes or 90 minutes.

As mentioned throughout the therapy and treatment information sections, I have the option of mixing and using specific dōTERRA essential oils to compliment your therapy and suit your specific needs for that session.  If you would like to learn more about the oils that I use, please click the button below.

WHAT LOVELY PEOPLE ARE SAYING

Very knowledgeable and helpful therapist. All of her clients are very lucky to have her! Highly recommended.
