A thoroughly unique experience modeled after treatments I received personally when I lived in Southern California, the Land of Therapy.

LUXURY OPTION : A Full-Body Luxury Aromatherapy Massage takes 90-minutes. It includes a visualisation, synchronising the breathe, and gentle stretches seamlessly blended in to a firm and mindful, rhythmic massage to the back, shoulders, full legs, feet, toes, full arms, wrists, hands & fingers, abdomen, chest, neck and shoulders again, then culminating with a special blend and a lighter touch specifically tailored for the face, ears, head and hair, all set to music. The experience is luxurious. My background in years & years of classical ballet training and improvisational dance contributes to a unique massage treatment. When I give a massage, it is like I am dancing all over again. And through my touch you are invited to be swept off your feet.
What to expect with regards your massage blend.

Most women I  know have only o ne conscious priority : making it through the day. Learn to get in touch with the silence within yourself, and know that everything in this life has a purpose.

All Aromatherapy Massage Treatments are given on a well-padded massage couch. Plenty of heavy, fluffy towels the size of bath sheets keep every client feeling pampered, warm and discreetly covered. We also supply thick & cosy bathrobes and plush house slippers for your convenience.

To her existing qualifications and experience Ruth has added both a post-graduate certificate in Advanced Aromatherapy and Massage in Pregnancy (London school) as well as a WELL MOTHER Pregnancy Massage APNT Certificate of Attendance (part of an internationally recognised diploma course).

Ruth is currently a regional officer for the Irish Massage Therapists Association (IMTA).

DIFFERENT EVERY TIME : The Pregnancy Massage sequence & positioning & technique always changes, is trimester dependent, and depends upon the mother-to-be, what ails her at the moment.

You can be confident that the techniques used in each month or trimester of pregnancy will be suitable, safe, and appropriate, conforming to your needs and condition.

Being pregnant changes everything.

The comfort & safety of you, the mother, and your developing baby are paramount.

Women having their 1st baby will receive extra support.

All of the following positions bring relief to most pregnant women and can be used in pregnancy massage per request:

Draped over a beanbag or couch cushions

Semi-sitting position - Propped Up & Supported

Left Lateral Lie - the very best position; optimum circulation is accomplished

Leaning over a pregnancy ball while kneeling - oh so relaxing!

Leaning over a chair back or against a solid wall

Right Lateral Lie - a great finishing position

On All-Fours position - Sheer Relief when the load is heavy

 

Pregnancy Massage Position: Left Lateral Lie - Shown on a Massage TableLogistics: Pregnant women after their 4th-month are generally more comfortable being massaged on a cosy, thick pile of duvets layered over wide, well-padded floor mats augmented by ample pillows and supports of all sizes. Exceptions, of course, exist and these individuals may opt to be massaged on the massage table.


 

 


With the Birthing Ball... Here's What You Have to Gain:

Conditioning - Gentle exercise on the birthing ball during pregnancy can strengthen the abdominal "pushing" muscles, as well as the lower-back muscles that, in turn minimises back pain.

Physical Relief - Kneeling over the ball can ease back strain and encourage the baby to settle into an optimal position. It adapts to your needs, offering you much needed relief.

Comfort - Especially during the last few weeks of pregnancy, the ball is often more comfortable & easier to get onto & off of than a chair or bed.

Relaxation - The birthing ball can be used for massage, resting at home, and
practicing birth positions.

Comfort & Convenience is Only the Beginning... Other Benefits of the Ball may include...

Alignment - Sitting on the ball helps keep baby properly aligned in the pelvis.

Assistance - The ball works with gravity to aid baby's descent into the pelvis.

Movement - The birthing ball encourages pelvic mobility, easing tension.

Relaxation - Sitting on warm compresses placed upon the ball eases pelvic floor aches & helps relax the pelvic floor.

Natural Rhythm - The birthing ball allows a natural back and forth swaying movement that encourages the relaxation of muscles used during labour, can reduce pain and stress.

Dilation - The ball may speed up dilation & effacement, improving your labour's progress.

Readjustment - The birthing ball also encourages position changing during labour (rocking the pelvis, shifting weight, etc).

Support - By reducing stress on the hands and wrists, the birthing ball can enable you to remain longer in the hands and knees position during labour.
