C-Section Scar Therapy

This treatment is for women with a c-section or any other scar which has recently healed or is years old. Scars can cause pain, internal pulling, tightness and numbness over and around the scar tissue. Scar therapy (including massage therapy, soft tissue techniques and movement) helps to improve the mobility and look of the scar itself and the function of the tissues surrounding the scar. 

A Scar Therapy session can be booked as a one-off session initially although I may recommend a short course of sessions for more troublesome scars.

Undergarments

Core Restore

Core Restore sessions are designed for women who would like to improve the functioning of their core and pelvic floor, reduce pelvic floor related pain and/or achieve a flatter tummy. The "core" contains a whole system of muscles and after pregnancy into Motherhood and beyond, this system can become imbalanced leading to pelvic floor issues, an "empty inside" feeling, and the inability to achieve a better looking, stronger tummy, which your current programme of crunches, planks and other abdominal/core/Pilates training is not achieving. Core Restore sessions can be booked like regular personal training sessions, but an initial one-off session is advised at first for a thorough consultation and assessment.

Diastasis Recti1.jpg

Diastasis Recti Recovery

100% of women have a Diastasis Rectus Abdominus (DRA) by the end of pregnancy, which is a stretching of the tissue that lays between the six-pack muscles. Dependant on various different factors, including genetics, nutrition, hydration, breathing pattern, exercise choices and posture, the healing of DRA can require specific intervention. This treatment includes an assessment of DRA as well as treatment including massage therapy, individualised exercise, and healing nutrition advice.

Massage

Myofascial Release for Pelvic Health and Prolapse

This 121 session is for any woman looking to improve core and pelvic floor function including reducing pelvic pain, treating symptoms associated with incontinence, and prolapse/heavy feeling in the pelvis. 

 

This session will involve an advanced soft tissue massage therapy technique called myofascial release as well as appropriate movement/exercises. Myofascial release is a very slow soft tissue technique designed to "unwind" tightness and reduce sensitivity in the the body's fascial tissues which surrounds and supports the body's muscles. It's a hands on session so I will manually correct technique and positioning to support restoring optimal function of the body. As a Sports Therapist and specialist in Women's Wellness, together we can work to treat injuries, dysfunctions and improve issues like pain and tightness that may currently be limiting your current exercise regime and/or daily life. Please note, I do not cover any internal work for the pelvic floor, but I'm happy to refer to a local Women's Health Physiotherapist if I feel you would benefit from this.

Postnatal Health Check

This postnatal health check is all about YOU. It involves an in-depth assessment on muscle imbalances which can contribute to postnatal aches pains, and dysfunction, posture, core and pelvic floor functioning, c-section scar assessment (if relevant), nutrition to support healing and some non-judgemental emotional support following the birth of your baby. This check does not include any interval pelvic floor assessment, although I can refer you to a pelvic floor physiotherapists should this be recommended.

A Postnatal Health Check can be booked as a one-off session below. You may like to take a look at my other New Mum services.

Acupressure Neck Massage

Postnatal Massage

My postnatal massage offering reduces aches and pains associated with your new role as Mum. Extended periods of time sitting feeding and new repetitive movements related to caring for your new baby can commonly lead to back, shoulder and neck pain. Postnatal massage also helps to induce relaxation and provide you with an opportunity for some much needed 'me-time' to improve emotional as well as physical wellbeing. There is no minimum of maximum time after delivery that you "qualify" for a postnatal massage, so take this time whenever you can!

Mum On The Run

Mum on the Run are comprehensive 121 sessions to support you in your quest to returning to running after having a baby.

These sessions are also suitable for women who are already running but feel their technique and training can be more pelvic floor friendly. Maybe you are picking up injuries or experiencing some pelvic floor dysfunction or pain during or after running?

Mother Holding Baby

Postnatal Recovery Coaching

If you need the extra accountability of working 121 live and face to face/virtually to restore your alignment, core and pelvic floor, replete (not deplete) your energy further, and reduce new Mum aches and pains, then these coaching sessions are for you. Sessions are bespoke to your needs and I can work with you through any postnatal related aches, pains and conditions to help you return to movement and activity, and reconnect with your body safely.

Massage Therapy for Lumbo-Pelvic Pain and PGP

Your body undergoes many changes during pregnancy and it is common to experience discomfort such as pelvic girdle pain, low back and specific issues such as Carpal Tunnel Syndrome even into Motherhood. My massage therapy sessions for lumbo-pelvic pain and PGP take a remedial and corrective approach in order to improve alignment, improve muscular balance, reduce nervous system sensitisation, support emotional health, reduce stress and promote relaxation.
