Situated in the heart of Glastonbury, I offer therapeutic and restorative massage for all, I believe that every person should be able to benefit from the natural healing approach of massage, whether you need relaxation or treating back pain.
I specialise in Pregnancy massage for all trimesters, which allows me to work on the body in a side position, but this can also be adapted to where mother is most comfortable. I also work with the mother preparing towards the birth of her baby, giving advice, breathing techniques, and visualisations. Massage can be a wonderful bonding time for mother and baby to have time out of a busy life to focus and connect with herself and her growing baby. “If you are looking after yourself, you are also looking after your baby”
I also work with couples helping both mother and birth partner. Giving tips and techniques to help the birth partner be more supportive, showing them how to massage and energy points during labour.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions. Thanks Sarah

Hi my name Tina and having been practicing massage for 28 years and am qualified in a variety of different massage treatments that I love to do, but my real passion is treating ante natal and post natal ladies. In the third trimester treatment also includes birth work where partners can also attend to strengthen mothers support in birth. This I do privately and in the community working along side the community midwifes.
Working with women and families has always been my focus, initially starting out as a nurse and then a midwife for 12 years. For the past 16 years I have been supporting women and men in their muscluo-skeletal health through massage therapy and structural alignment. I have found touch to be a vital part in everyday health and especially during pregnancy and labour, it frees the body from stress and tension of muscular tightness which can cause misalignment in the skeletal system, as such good alignment assists with more efficient labour and delivery of the baby. Massage allows a restoration of body , mind and emotions, it encourages health and wholeness, and empowers the person to take an active part in their wellbeing. I teach 'massage for couple's' courses showing you how techniques can be helpful during labour. Every session, whether teaching or treatment, is tailor made for your needs and I travel to your home so you can continue resting after the treatment is finnished.
Pregnancy massage gives you a wonderful experience of bonding and connection, helping you feel more in touch with yourself and with your baby. Its nurturing touch allows you to connect with your inner wisdom and strength. And it can help with some of more physical niggles you can get during pregnancy.
Post-natal massage is one of the best ways to help you to recover from being pregnant. On a physical level massage will help to restore your abdominal muscles, address pelvic floor toning, improve circulation and lymphatic flow and relieve back and shoulder aches.
Touch helps the recovery process after the birth. It can relieve stress and trauma, especially if your birth experience differed from your expectations.
