The Lotus Retreat is a beautiful holistic sanctuary in the heart of the Oxfordshire countryside.

Pregnancy Massage

Holistic massage is a deeply relaxing treatment that brings harmony and health to mind, body and spirit

Pregnancy Massage

Pregnancy massage specifically treats the changing needs of mother and baby during pregnancy and after the birth itself. Regular massage at this magical yet highly demanding time, relieves muscular discomfort, balances hormones, alleviates fluid retention and increases the mother and child bond. It can help calm the body and mind in the build up to labor and in doing so increases the chances of a smooth and harmonious entry into the world.

Taking care of your wellbeing at this time will have tremendous short and long-term benefits for you and your baby.

Postnatal massage is an essential element of post-partum recovery in many non-western countries around the world. This is because it rebalances the hormonal system after labour and is an excellent means of nurturing ones-self whilst dealing with the huge demands of caring for your little one.

Your first session will start with a detailed consultation that will enable Carrie to adapt the massage to your individual needs. Her wide holistic tool-box includes Tibetan massage, reflexology, acupressure, singing bowl therapy and Reiki.

Carrie trained in pregnancy massage in Harley street, London, over ten years ago. During your session she may also use Reiki to encourage a deep sense of calm in mother and baby and as the labor approaches reflexology can also be used to help prepare mother and baby for labour.
