Massage through pregnancy is both functional and therapeutic.  It’s designed to deal with the changes a mother-to-be will experience during and after her pregnancy. These will include postural changes, hormonal changes, possible weight gain and the emotional ups and downs.

Pre and post natal massage benefits the wellbeing of the mother and baby. It is aimed at alleviating the following symptoms.

 

“I decided to re-train as a sports & remedial massage practitioner after having a sports massage due to reoccurring injury and have never looked back.

 

After qualifying and setting up Silverstone Soft Tissue Therapy, I also have worked at Fulham Football Club, BodyBalance Physiotherapy, English Institute of Sport and Tass (Talented Athlete Scholarship scheme) working with many funded up and coming elite athletes from a wide range of sports. A highlight was working at the 2012 London Olympics & Paralympics.   I have also provided pre and post treatment at the London Marathon and many regional events. 

 

I have continued with my professional development, doing a wide range of courses, these include; pregnancy massage, advanced medical acupuncture, Kenisio Taping.”
