Pregnancy Massage

All our therapists have been trained and fully qualified to provide massage during Pregnancy by Rick Stone of the Stones Aquamassage Academy.
Training is also currently booked with Ben Barnett from Hydrotherm for further pregnancy training.


The Hydrotherm system is a massage treatment that is performed on warm water cushions that are placed on a massage couch. The treatment can be either done through clothes or using oil. The client lies face up and does not have to turn over, which is ideal for people who do not like to lay face down. The therapist works between the cushions and the client’s body using upward pressure. The warm water relaxes the muscles and the water supports the body, this gives a sensation of floating.

The Hydrotherm system is suitable for all ages and also through all stages of pregnancy.

The potentional benefits to having massage during pregnancy can include:

  • It can help the alleviation of headaches, shoulder and back-pain

  • Sooth sore muscles and bring relief of stress

  • Boost your immune system

  • Improve posture and general well-being

  • Improves Circulation


Our use of an AquaMat and specially designed couches allow for a safe and comfortable treatment.
This combination ensures that no stress is placed on the broad ligament or the vena cava.This allows you to still have a full back massage. Without the AquaMat a side-lying position would normally be the only position for you to still be able to receive massage in.

Testimonials
I have been having Hydrotherm treatments with Beth throughout my pregnancy and it has been the best massage I have had using the Hydrotherm system. It is so comfortable and relaxing unlike normal pregnancy massage having to lay on your side. It is soothing and warm and mounds to the shape of your back. I would highly recommend it to everyone, not just pregnant ladies!

“How did I find the Hydrotherm System? It was amazing, very good! I had my first Hydrotherm treatment last week and it was very deep, much deeper than I expected. I’ve just come from my second one and am so chilled out and relaxed – it’s lovely to be massaged lying on that warm cushion. It was a unique experience and I would most definitely recommend it to my friends!
