Light Touch​

MASSAGE THERAPY

Nurturing Mothers, Nourishing Babies

Claire Cannie ( VTCT, MFHT, APNT)

Im an VTCT, APNT fully qualified and FHT insured therapist.

In 2003 I qualified in Body massage and Sports Massage therapy.

in 2014, following the birth of my daughter I retrained and gained my diploma in Pregnancy and abdominal massage.

in 2017 I completed the Well Mother practical training and am currently completing the theory work that goes with it. Well Mother training is a world leading course in pregnancy massage and bodywork.

The benefits of massage are huge but even more so through pregnancy.

Benefits include -

•  Releases Oxytocin*

•  Reduces anxiety

•  reduces swelling in hands, feet and ankles

•  Lessens Sciatic pain

•  Eases muscular discomfort

•  Strengthens the immune system

    Just to name a few!

So if you are or know anyone who is pregnant why not get in touch?

*Oxytocin is a hormone that helps relax and reduce blood pressure and cortisol levels. It increases pain thresholds and has anti anxiety effects.

Repeated exposure to oxytocin has long-lasting effects. Therefore regular massage is not only a little luxury but you are also preparing your body for labour!
