PREGNANCY MASSAGE IN REDRUTH
What is Pregnancy Massage?
Suitable throughout your pregnancy, Pregnancy Massage is personalised to your pregnancy experience, keeping you and your baby safe.
During treatment, you will be supported with a combination of pillows and/or bolsters in either a seated, side-lying, or elevated position on your back. This allows you to relax while your aches and pains are eased away.
What are the benefits?
Both through pregnancy (prenatal) and after birth (postnatal), your body will undergo a series of changes physically, hormonally, and emotionally. These changes can cause your body to work harder, which can lead to joint and muscle pain or discomfort.
As the baby grows, your posture changes, affecting your centre of gravity. This can cause the muscles in your back, hips, and pelvis to exert more effort. After the baby is born, the muscles in your back, neck and shoulders may work harder due to carrying a baby (and then a toddler), holding a baby to breastfeed, and pushing a pram, etc.
While it is normal for these changes to occur, you should not be suffering with pain—and that is where Pregnancy Massage comes in!
What should you expect?

A Note From Heather
Please speak to your midwife/doctor about having a massage prior to booking your first appointment.
If you have a high-risk pregnancy and/or are at risk of any of the following, it will not be possible to provide you treatment:
“My feet were hurting terribly and making it hard to walk sometimes. Heather was very professional and pleasant. We discussed exercises and she emailed the instructions to me. My feet are so much better that I don’t even think about them anymore! I highly recommend Heather’s services”
— Lynda, 68
“I tore one of my rotator cuff muscles and experienced acute pain in my shoulder and very limited movement. My experience with Heather was kinder, more dignified, and more professional than the treatment I received at my local Minor Injuries Unit which left me in tears. I would highly recommend Heather for her kindness, knowledge and professionalism in the field of Soft Tissue Therapy.”
— Julie, 46
“On Valentine’s Day, I took a tumble when out running with Fonzie, my dog, but we are so grateful to Heather for her expertise and support. A magical combination of the right knowledge, rehab exercises, and massage has meant that for the first time, my ankles feel really strong, and we feel like we can run again! I’m so very grateful and can’t wait to see how things improve even further!”
— Rachel, 37
“My husband, David, had several treatments for lower back pain from Heather. He left home in great discomfort and returned a new man. How he wishes we hadn’t moved 365 miles away; otherwise, he would be seeing Heather regularly. She is amazing!!!!”
— Julie on behalf of her husband David, Retired, 66
“Saw Heather today for the first time, and it was a brilliant session! Consultation was very thorough and Heather was exceptional with her knowledge on why I was having problems in my back. I felt so good just after this first massage session that I wasn’t in any pain and was able to go out for a run! I highly recommend her for anyone wanting someone knowledgeable and skilled to help with their problems”
— Holli, 32
“Heather is amazing at her job and so lovely. She creates a warm and friendly environment and puts you at ease and listens to your needs.”
— Lisa, 51
