Why Mother Touch Massage
The clinic offering at Mother Touch, specialises in the perinatal, prenatal and postnatal remedial massage and has been a natural evolution built from personal experience in pregnancy, labour and caesarean, as well as rehabilitation, surgery and recovery from pregnancy related abdominal surgery.
The journey through various physical therapies before and afterwards, lead Owner and Therapist Claire, to study many different modalities with this healing in mind and then onto advanced trainings and medical massage, in order to help herself and in doing so, learning how to help others
Mother Touch also has the custom made Belly Hole Table so we can offer you uncompromised treatments, with your spine in alignment.

Will you Massage my Belly and what is abdominal massage?
For the prenatal massage we will not massage your Belly. This is not required unless the client particularly finds this soothing.
All remedial massage therapists are “qualified’ per se to give abdominal massage. However there is a specialised form of Medical Massage that is a separate journey of advanced post graduate training that really sets this apart from the undergraduate training. This is next level palpatory skills , evidence based and backed by science that gets you real results.
Abdominal Medical Massage is very gentle and wonderful for fertility and postnatal rehabilitation. It is also great for longer term postnatal rehabilitation and after some forms of abdominal surgery to free the viscera from restrictions. With first hand experience through rehabilitation after caesarean, hernias and abdominal surgery, please call to discuss whether this could be for you.
