What we do


Pregnancy Massage in Edinburgh

Pregnancy Massage is a deeply relaxing and restorative treatment tailored entirely to your needs and your stage in pregnancy.

Massage during pregnancy can help you adjust to the dramatic changes you are experiencing as you prepare for childbirth.There are many well-documented benefits to pregnancy massage including reduced anxiety and back pain, improved mood and sleep, lowered urinary stress hormones and fewer birth issues.

Research has also shown that in mothers-to-be suffering from depression who receive regular pregnancy massage experience a reduction in depression and back pain. Regular massage also led to significantly fewer premature babies and babies with lower birth weights.

KnotStressed are specialists in Pregnancy Massage in Edinburgh. We are also well respected UK-providers of Pregnancy Massage Training. All our KnotStressed therapists are trained through our own Federation of Antenatal Educators accredited Pregnancy Massage Training

Find out the specific benefits of Pregnancy Massage during the three main stages of pregnancy:

What will each session involve?

Pregnancy Massage involves a combination of techniques such as Swedish, Acupressure, Deep Tissue and Indian Head Massage, Shiatsu and Lymphatic Drainage.

Each session may include a full consultation, massage, gentle stretching and exercises, breathing and visualisation techniques, and an end of session review.

What position will I be lying in?

Pregnancy Massage is usually undertaken with you in the side-lying position, or semi-reclining, and supported by specially designed 'Body Support Cushions'. Most clients say they wish they could take the cushions home with them!
