Why pregnancy massage?

The pregnancy period is a special period in which many changes take place in the body of the expectant mother. Physical and hormonal changes take place to make room for the development of the baby and childbirth. In this period a pregnancy massage is a real treat for both mother and child.

During the pregnancy a variety of complaints can occur, like neck and back pain, pelvic complaints, retaining fluid, cramps, sleeplessness but also anxiety and stress can play a role. A massage can help alleviate these complaints. The massage relieves pain, improves the blood circulation, reduces swelling, is calming and relaxes.

Even when there are no complaints a massage makes a positive contribution to both mother and baby. The hormones which are released during a massage give a feeling of happiness and wellbeing, which will also reach your baby through the placenta. This relaxes your baby and reduces possible stress.

Before every treatment there will be an intake, so that each treatment will be tailored to your specific wishes and needs at that moment. The massages will be given on a special pregnancy massage table with cut-outs for the breasts and abdomen. The belly will be supported by a belly strap, which makes it possible for the mother to lie down on her belly.

Pregnancy massages can be given from three months (the second trimester) until the last day of the pregnancy. Are there any complications which make you doubt if a pregnancy massage is something for you? Please consult your midwife first.

After travelling to India, Sanne started her studies at the Royal Academy of Arts in The Hague. During her studies she discovered a reoccurring subject in her work; understanding human behaviour and exploring the inner and outer realms of being.

Her work functioned as a form of communication to explore this interest. She gained a fascination for Eastern philosophy and healing practices. Her way of communicating was starting to change.

After graduating she has been flying back and forth between The Netherlands and India, to study massage and yoga. Now Sanne is certified in Traditional Thai Yoga Massage, Oil Massage, Prenatal Massages as well as Hatha and Vinyasa yoga.
