Pregnancy massage at Totally Tranquil works like any other classic massage therapy but the techniques used are tailored specifically for a mum-to-be, ensuring a woman’s shape and size are catered for with the addition of pillows for support as well as the massage pressure itself.
Pregnancy massages are carried out by a Chartered Physiotherapist at Totally Tranquil

We have watched lots of friends fall pregnant in that time. We would as you would expect pass on our knowledge, advice and exercises as needed. And there our special interest began I’m women’s health, maternity and post natal care.
We set up Totally Tranquil in 2010 and we soon realised that lots of pregnant women around us simply wanted to be pampered a little. They didn’t have a problem pain as such, which required Physio treatment, but they just wanted their general aches and pains easing out with a lovely massage and some general relaxation time.
From 2011 we started to offer a dedicated pregnancy massage service which has gone from strength to strength.
The other part of our Maternity Physio Service is treating women who have Pelvic Girdle Pain (PGP). We see a lot of PGP which often only requires one session of Physio to provide some gentle manual therapy to the pelvis, exercise and appropriate/ relevant advice. It really does make a significant difference and it is great to see these women walking around the local community rather than hobbling and struggling with day to day tasks.
We hope to keep on making a difference and to work with more great women for a long time to come.
