mamma mia pregnancy massage
mamma mia is a nurturing, relaxing massage for that very special time in your life!
Pregnancy is a time of wonder - watching new life grow inside of you, feeling the first
butterflies and later the strong kicks...
It is hard to top this experience!
But pregnancy is also a time of change -
Your body: it changes dramatically. The uterus increases in size 5-6 times and your blood volume by 35-50 %. All ligaments
soften, increasing joint mobility. Your breasts grow new ducts in preparation to feed your baby. The heavier belly brings extra
tension to your muscles.
Your emotions: with changed hormone levels, emotions can go up and down. The thought of becoming a mum can be most exciting,
but at times quite scary, too. You might experience pure happiness in one moment, and anxiety or even depression in the next.
Your circumstances: you might have a break from work life ahead and will probably be busy building a nest for the new addition
to your family!
With all the physical and emotional changes and challenges, pregnancy massage is a great way in supporting you to stay in balance.
It relaxes tense muscles, reduces swollen legs & cramps, relieves tension in back, shoulders & neck and soothes the nerves.
It provides a space for you to deeply relax and bond with your baby.
Through my special training in pregnancy massage I am able to accompany you throughout your pregnancy.
For me, that is a very special privilege!
All the principles and a lot of the techniques used are the same as with the every body massage.
But since your body is in a very special condition, your massage will be very special, too!
I will change, add and adapt techniques and positioning around your growing belly,
ensuring the comfort & safety for you and your baby throughout your pregnancy.
To watch a wonder developing
is one of the highlights in everyone's life.
To be in touch with it
is one of the highlights for a massage therapist!
...what mums-to-be and midwives say:
"Gudrun has a wonderfully gentle and collaborative approach to massage and works holistically with the person and their body. I feel truly blessed to have access to such a calm, skilled and effective massage therapist. I am a health professional myself and feel she ticks all the boxes by providing a high quality and professional service." Sue, President NZ College of Midwives
"I find Gudrun to be a wonderful listener with lots of useful advice and is excellent at what she does. She focuses on the areas that require more attention and remembers your needs and preferences. She also makes sure you are very comfortable with the setting and with her so you feel very relaxed and enjoy the sense of privacy that the place provides. I look forward to my pregnancy massages with Gudrun all week! Now my husband wants to go for her massages too. :)" May, Mum to be
"I had a lovely pregnancy massage with Gudrun 3 days pass my due date. Right away, she made me feel comfortable. It seams that she knew exactly what I needed. The massage was very relaxing gave me vitality for the rest of my day. I didn't need a nap in the afternoon! I highly recommend her for pregnancy massage as well as regular massage. I will see her again for sure!" Melissa, Mum to be, 40+ weeks
"Thankyou so much Gudrun! At 36 weeks pregnant I didn't think it was possible to feel so relaxed and wonderful. Baby loved it too :-)" Heather, Mum to be, 36 weeks
"Thanks Gudrun. Last night - after your massage - I had a fantastic sleep and was very relaxed. Today I feel quite energized, so thank-you very much, you do such a fantastic job. If this baby doesn’t come next week I will definitely be contacting you for another massage!" Mel, Mum to be, 39 weeks
"Gudrun, surely you are blessed with the magic touch! That was bliss. I didn't want to get up: a sure sign of a spectacular massage - I feel so relaxed! Thank you. I'll be back!" Cath, Mum to be
"I had a pregnancy massage with Gudrun. I was quite nervous to go, because I didn't have a massage in a long time, and I was wondering how it would be for me and the baby. Gudrun and I had a lovely chat before the massage and she checked exactly what I needed at the time. Gudrun's beautifully peaceful room and the music made it easy to relax and enjoy. She massaged all the right areas and it was feeling just perfect! After the massage I had some time to myself and the baby and we both were happy and relieved. We decided to book the next massage for this week and we are going to make this a routine visit for us. Thanks Gudrun for a special treatment" Maricki, Mum to be
