Massage & Reflexology
The benefits of massage are many and varied; particularly during pregnancy and post-natally and can assist with back, pelvic girdle, groin pain, sciatica, SPD (symphasis pubis diastasis), abdominal separation, headaches associated with muscular tension, RLS (restless leg syndrome), leg cramps, carpal tunnel and oedema.
 At no other time, will a woman experience such vast physical, emotional and hormonal changes; in such a short space of time.
Pregnancy massages are beneficial from 13-14 weeks of pregnancy (usually after your Nuchal Transluscency Scan) and our specially designed Belly Bag, supports your changing body right up until your baby is born.  
Bellies & Bubs has a variety of treatments to support your pregnancy from pampering treatments, to something more remedial and signature 'balancing' treatments for malpositioned babies and birth preparation.
New Mums benefit from our nurturing and pampering treatments, designed to target tight upper back, shoulders and neck, jaw and scalp, arms and hands. 
Womens' Health treatments are also provided at Bellies & Bubs...  Sometimes an hour's escape is all that's required to reconnect the Body, Mind, Soul.
