Your Local Holistic Massage Therapist Alfriston
Pregnancy Massage £50
Pregnancy is a time of major physical and emotional change. It an intense season in your life and I feel that every woman should treat her body with the tender and loving care she will undoubtedly give to her baby in abundance. Taking time out for yourself is an important part of self care and very grounding. Reiki and massage provide a wide range of benefits to your body, mind and soul during all trimesters of your beautiful pregnancy. Massage and Reiki can:
- Alleviate stress on joints
- Help remedy muscular pains and cramps
- increases blood circulation and helps to maintain good blood pressure
- Soothes and relaxes the nervous system which releases endorphins. this is great for relaxation and aids sleep
- Promotes relaxation and is a stress reliever.
The safe, relaxing and nurturing space I provide you with offers the ideal support, loving touch and balancing energy that’s just perfect to support you through this transition into your 4th trimester.
The postnatal period is often very overlooked. I aim to honour the amazing birth you have experienced and your journey into motherhood by honouring all of you.
Sacred postnatal mother roasting is the care of the new mother focusing on the total health and gentle recovery of a woman as she embarks on this journey into motherhood. It is the tender wrapping up of the healing soul, warming of the body and binding the mother through gentle loving arms of a sister. Reclaiming the traditions of postnatal care my mother roasting service will offer all you need to seal your birth and ease you lovingly into motherhood with healing foods, sacred baths, warming and binding bellies and massage, tinctures, oils, teas, loving hands and an open heart is all available to you.
Every woman deserves to be welcomed into mothering through gentle and loving care
Sacred postnatal package £475
this package aims to lovingly care for you during the first 6 weeks after your birth. I will visit you once a week at your home with a food box (menu will be sent to you before), herbal/ floral bath and belly bind. I will offer a warm oil rub down with full body massage including closing the bones and tuck in with gentle meditation.
While you are tucked in I prepare the herbal bath, while you are bathing I can prepare a dish from your food box, the cleansing broth is always good after a treatment and a pot of herbal tea with lactation cookie. Before you sit to eat I bind your belly which can be left for a week until I next visit or however long is comfortable for you.
I will hold baby if needed while you are tucked in, bathing or simply want to enjoy your tea and food with two hands! I will also wash the dishes and rinse the bath out if needed and so that after I leave you can just relax and enjoy the feeling of post treatment bliss.
If you would like to extend the 6 weeks additional treatments can be discussed.

Loving hands massage and Reiki

St Francis of Assisi
I cannot stress enough the importance of massage and loving human touch for our whole well-being.
I am passionate about massage and dedicated to helping people feel good in their bodies. Using my heart, hands and head as I do with all of my work I aim to provide loving touch using techniques and approaches developed over centuries of body work. Training with the Jing institute of massage in Brighton gifted me with their wonderful fusion of east and west and the power of an informed touch.
Reiki healing £45
We are energy, that’s just a fact. Our busy and sometimes chaotic lives can disrupt healthy energy flow which affects our whole being. I believe that if we do not protect, balance and care for our energy then we will suffer for it and become unbalanced. I found that when I was led to train in Reiki I found a balance that I had been searching for.
Reiki means universal life force energy, it is a gentle laying of hands while channelling healing energy through the body. Reiki works on 4 levels, physical, emotional, mental and spiritual.
Reiki is a gentle treatment and safely compliments any other therapy while promoting health and well being. It can be used during any stage of life and is wonderfully balancing for transitions. Reiki during pregnancy and the 4th trimester is perfection!
The wonderful thing about a treatment is that Reiki will travel where it is needed. If you are feeling tired then you will feel refreshed, if you are anxious then you will feel calmer, if you are distressed then you will feel comforted. It balances at every level.
The treatment should last around 45 mins, as with all my treatments allow a little longer for your first visit.
