The Bliss & Benefits Of A Pregnancy Massage

I have been pregnant for what feels like two years now and I have reached a stage, 36 weeks in, where just getting up from the sofa is a job for a professional contortionist. I am still working full time so pampering has not been very high on my priority list but when the Sassy Mama team got in touch asking me if I would review the pregnancy massage service at Sensasia for their online magazine, I was literally on it.

So there I went on a Sunday morning (best time to have a pampering treat and start the week on a high, trust me!) to Sensasia’s Jumeirah 1 branch to road test their Yummy-Mummy to be massage for a whole 90 minutes of what I can only describe as pure bliss. The whole experience was flawless in my book: from the warm welcome with cold towel and fresh lemon infused water, to the perfectly executed massage itself (I think my wonderful therapist called Margie may have a been an angel fallen from the sky) and the after-treatment healthy snack and ginger tea in the relaxing room.

Being 8 months pregnant is pretty challenging in itself physically let alone when trying to lie down in a comfortable position. The treatment rooms have ridiculously comfortable massage tables and they use a bunch of lovely soft pillows and perfectly rolled up towels as props to get you in the right position. I felt so cosy I think I nodded off a few times throughout the treatment. Sorry Margie! Another bug bear of mine, and pregnant ladies out there will understand my frustration, is that usually getting a massage when expecting is not much more than a gentle light rub and a stroke up your back for a hour.

Lovely enough and better than a kick in the teeth of course but not exactly doing anything for those tired limbs, swollen ankles and painful lower back… My therapist at Sensasia knew exactly what she was doing and actually applied decent pressure to those tragically painful areas of my pregnant body and it did wonders for my water retention. I relaxed completely for over an hour, something I think hadn’t happened in about 8 months! I had read on various mama forums about the reputation of Sensasia’s mum-to-be massages and it certainly lived up to its high expectations. Their website has a warning their massages can get addictive and I am sorry to report it may well be true as I am already planning to book my next session in a couple of weeks.
