Something every new mother should experience!
Postnatal Recovery Massage is a soothing, binding procedure and postpartum massage which can be performed either on the floor or on a massage couch.
The session involves a massage and wrapping practice which helps to encourage the pelvic bones to move back into their pre-pregnancy position. It helps the uterus contract back into the pelvis (otherwise known as involution), supports the immune system, increases milk production, blood flow and provides a cleansing effect on the body. The treatment leaves you feeling relaxed, refreshed, grounded and stronger.
In many cultures, this wonderfully healing process takes place hours after the birth of the baby and is repeated as often as the mother prefers. Is it also beneficial for women at any stage of life, from post pregnancy through to menopause. We highly recommend every woman experiences the benefit of this amazing tradition at least once in her life!
Typically, a Postnatal Recovery Massage session lasts between 60 and 90 minutes. Babies may attend the session with their mummy and the practitioner will work around the needs of mother and baby, pausing to accommodate feeding demands and sleep.

“This was an amazing experience. I feel like the treatment has reclaimed the void that labour left. Truly incredible and lovely to have my little baby girl there with me. Can’t recommend this enough!” Laura W.
“After childbirth, I felt my body alignment was not as it was previously and this massage focused on the alignment of my core and hips. Vanessa made the whole experience calming and personal, gently talking me through each stage and what she noticed. Being able to bring my newborn meant I had no worries about feeding, and during the relaxed session I was able to attend to her needs. This is a great treatment which I would recommend to any new mum to try” Rebecca M.
