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

What is Shiatsu?
Shiatsu translates as ‘finger pressure’ and is based on traditional Japanese massage. Combining acupressure, massage, flowing movement and joint rotations helps to disperse tension, reduce pain, promote relaxation and healthy functioning of the body systems (circulation, breathing, digestion etc.). Shiatsu therapists are guided by their experience & knowledge of physiology and traditional Chinese medicine and apply pressure using fingers, thumbs, palms and elbows and combine it with other techniques.
