Nurturing Expectant Mums

“Traditional societies have typically regarded pregnancy as a sacred period in a woman’s life – a time when the pregnant woman must be treated with special care and reverence by the other members of her society. As the carrier of new life, she embodies the miracle of creation in her very being…”

~ Ina May Gaskin

The typical pregnancy in western culture places more emphasis on the baby than the woman. The entire experience has turned into preparing for the baby’s arrival rather than the emotional journey that comes with creating a new life. The sacredness of pregnancy and birth, as a rite of passage and a spiritual journey, has been forgotten in modern society

Health Benefits Of Pregnancy Massage & Reflexology

While pregnant, pregnant women can benefit from pregnancy massage and reflexology to help them feel more loving towards their bodies. Especially since their body is putting in a ton of effort to grow a baby inside them. Each session I hold space for a mum to be, allowing her to deeply relax and reconnect with herself. Identifying and addressing any hidden anxieties as well as any physical symptoms. Creating this space allows you to relax and unwind, allowing you to release any tensions. Sometimes it is just physical discomfort, but sometimes it is emotional holding that causes tension. It is vital to the healing process to talk out your concerns and be listened to. By bringing this level of release to a mother’s awareness, she can make a smooth transition into motherhood.

We recognize that every pregnancy is different, each woman is unique, so you will never experience a ‘one-size fits all’ session. A range of pillows and cushions will be provided to help you feel as comfortable as possible while lying on your side.

"Tania is absolutely magical! I was struggling to speak, after the treatment, as I was so blissed out. She soothed the aches in my lower back and hips and held space for me to completely relax. As always, will recommend to friends, clients and anyone who will listen.." ~ Ali Russell-Webb

REFLEXOLOGY

Relaxing and balancing pregnancy hormones can be achieved with reflexology. Offering you an ideal opportunity to connect with your baby and to feel nurtured and pampered prior to giving birth, calming and soothing any anxieties and stress that may be present.

Studies have shown that women who receive regular reflexology treatments during pregnancy have shorter labour and require less pain relief, which enables an easier birth with fewer complications.

"Tania is amazing. I had a wonderful relaxing treatment with her yesterday. Last night I slept so well, and today woke without my usual feeling of not enough sleep. I highly recommend regular treatment with Tania and have already booked in again." ~ Phillipa Wilmot, Alverstoke Chiropractor

Labour Induction

In the event that your baby appears to be too comfortable, enjoy a blissful session of reflexology to create a deep state of relaxation, which can often result in the spontaneous onset of labour. It is proven that reflexology can relax the mother-to-be and enable her to be in the most relaxed state of mind, making her and her unborn child feel safe, nurtured and ready for birth. Your body will also be balanced and rested after the session, enabling you to give birth in the best possible conditions

Testimonials

My Happy Clients!

Tania supported me throughout my pregnancy emotionally and physically with her knowledge and compassion, as well as her techniques in her pregnancy massage and reflexology. Throughout the treatments I was able to allow myself the time to switch off and Tania knew exactly how to do that. I suffered terribly with spd and sciatica, and in the treatment room set up and Tania's practice I was able to get comfortable enough to relax and enjoy the treatment leaving feeling refreshed, relaxed and open minded to the rest of the day. I found monthly treatments were beneficial and by the time my next appointment was due I was definitely ready for another session of zen mama. I feel the price was extremely reasonable for the service and knowledge I received as a normal therapist would charge these rates and not be a pregnancy specialist. I would highly recommend any mum to be visits Tania whether it be a one off or a monthly booking, I can assure you after one treatment there is no way you wouldn't return

"I had pregnancy massage and reflexology treatments. The whole experience was amazing. I didn’t have the easiest of pregnancies and the treatment i received definitely helped. The whole ambience is uber relaxing. So much so I went for a postnatal treatment and sent my darling daughter (who wasn’t sleeping very well at this time) straight to sleep. If I had to sum it up, One word…AMAZING.I would definitely recommend to my friends. I cant put into words how incredible you are as a therapist, confident and overall person. You made me feel very relaxed and that i could talk to you and open up. Wish i could come more often"
Francesca Duke
"The treatment room is beautiful, calming and relaxing. My treatments were heavenly. I had the Zen Mama. With a bad back and pregnant with an I.V.F. baby there was no way I was going to take any medication for my bad back, that could harm my baby. I then found Tania. With regular treatments my pregnancy went completely smooth and I found myself so relaxed afterwards. I recommend any pregnant lady to have this package. It was the one thing I looked forward too for me, and with Tania’s professional but friendly approach you cannot go wrong! As soon as I entered the therapy room I instantly felt relaxed. I need to rebook!!"
Victoria Warrington
I absolutely recommend a pregnancy massage with Tania at the Zen Garden. The place is nice and relaxing from the minute you walk in and you don't quite 'walk' out but 'float' out! She is lovely and very highly skilled and professional. I had several pregnancy massages and I'm now booked in for postnatal (well needed!!) session!! I can't wait xx
Francesca Romana Errico-Harvey
I’ve been seeing Tania for a while now, I attended regular Zen Mama massage and reflexology appointments throughout my pregnancy, and have continued to see her (although not as regularly as I’d like) since the baby arrived. Tania is magic, pure and simple! She instantly puts you at ease as you walk into the Zen garden and are greeted with a lovely smile, the treatment room is beautiful, a real haven. Having suffered with SPD through my pregnancy I found instant relief from the pain once Tania had worked her magic, and when I see her I am completely de-stresssed and leave feeling like I am floating. Her knowledge and experience is astounding, and I love nothing more than chatting away the time with her during my appointments. I really can not recommend Tania enough!
Sara Elkins
Incredible! Having arrived feeling very anxious about my upcoming induction Tania instantly put me at ease. I was the most comfy in her relaxation room than I have been the whole pregnancy. The pregnancy massage itself was absolute bliss, and really calmed me. Tania is also very helpful when it was time to turn over/sit up (as at 38 weeks pregnant this is not easy). Massage finished with some amazing reflexology. You can tell she is extremely knowledgeable about what she is doing and 100% has your wellbeing as top priority. I also used Tania for my first pregnancy and am looking forward to another Zen Mama massage next week before babes arrives.
