The focus of my work so far has led me down a route of massages that people can really feel making a difference during and after the massage session. Through focused work on relaxing the body the mind will follow and many clients feel deeply relaxed, calm and reinvigorated this is helpful to first time mothers as well as mothers who already have children. I also offer sessions where partners can be involved which can be very useful through pregnancy and during birth. Please see my website for more details or call for a chat about your individual requirements. Best wishes, Amy
Women come for pregnancy and postnatal massage for all kinds of reasons: to ease aches and pains, to get some precious ‘me time’, to explore their feelings about pregnancy and their changing body, to prepare for birth and to nourish themselves after their baby has arrived. Working from my home near to Bushey station, I use a variety of approaches including abdominal-sacral massage, Biodynamic, rebozo, energy work, shiatsu, womb massage and conventional massage to create a safe space where women can drop into themselves and let go of what no longer serves them.

Shiatsu Practitioner working with a wide range of clients and with Fertility, Pregnancy and Postnatally.
With a special interest in Pregnancy and women's menstrual cycles. Qualified 2005, Wellmother 2009.
Working with women and families has always been my focus, initially starting out as a nurse and then a midwife for 12 years. For the past 16 years I have been supporting women and men in their muscluo-skeletal health through massage therapy and structural alignment. I have found touch to be a vital part in everyday health and especially during pregnancy and labour, it frees the body from stress and tension of muscular tightness which can cause misalignment in the skeletal system, as such good alignment assists with more efficient labour and delivery of the baby. Massage allows a restoration of body , mind and emotions, it encourages health and wholeness, and empowers the person to take an active part in their wellbeing. I teach 'massage for couple's' courses showing you how techniques can be helpful during labour. Every session, whether teaching or treatment, is tailor made for your needs and I travel to your home so you can continue resting after the treatment is finnished.
