Shiatsu is a gentle, safe massage treatment to have during pregnancy and beyond.
The main benefits are relaxation, improved sleep and reduction in aches and discomfort that can sometimes make this a really challenging time. Here's my experience of Shiatsu during my pregnancy.

Pregnant or recently had a baby? Having a baby can be a demanding time, both physically and emotionally. There's pressure on your internal organs, circulation, spine, joints, thoughts, emotions and finances! With Shiatsu treatment I aim to give you more space, be it head space of pure relaxation or less pressure on the swollen ankles, eased out spine or as much of a full breath as the growing bump will permit. Shiatsu massage can be used to give you a boost, help you to feel relaxed, induce deep sleep, reduce the aches and improve your ability to cope with (and enjoy!) daily challenges of pregnancy and parenthood. I even give you a handy £10 discount! Book by phoning Meadowlark Yoga on 0131 228 7581
