Developmental Baby Massage in Bristol
The first year of life is crucial in the development of the child and of the adult the child will become. Babies thrive when they feel they are welcome, safe, loved and accepted. They come to know these things through us; our touch, our interaction, our engaged presence. Offer this gift and you are laying down the strongest foundations from which your baby can thrive.

For parents -and mothers recovering from pregnancy and childbirth in particular, the first few months after having a baby can be utterly exhausting and overwhelming, with little or no time to recover from giving birth. Receiving support and nurturing at this time may be crucial for your wellbeing as well as your capacity to care for your little one. Here is a gift you can offer to yourself. I specialise in bodywork for both mother and infant and teach you tools that will benefit and empower you both. I offer this baby therapy from my clinic in Bristol.

What are the benefits of Baby Shiatsu?
I offer developmental baby massage sessions in Bristol where I work directly with your baby. I incorporate aspects of baby massage, shiatsu, baby yoga, baby body language therapy and developmental movement patterning to provide therapeutic support for babies up to walking age.

You may choose to bring your baby to me to address issues such as colic, reflux, constipation, sleep difficulties or developmental delay. But there needn’t be anything wrong with your baby to benefit from a treatment. I also provide you with games, massage techniques or handling ideas for use at home in between sessions. Babies remain clothed throughout the session, please dress your baby in something loose and comfy. Often babies need a really good sleep after a session.

“A wonderful shiatsu from you Leonie - thank you so much. The perfect balance of support and relaxation, in a sensitive and professional way. Loving the oil blends too!”

During my career, I have mastered the skills that I teach to offer opportunity for those parents who need to confidently provide their babies the life that would make them feel safe, secure and loved, through setting up a more solid foundation for their emotional wellbeing throughout this life.

Care For Mum and Baby With Pregnancy Massage
Pregnancy Massage in Bristol
Pregnancy can be a stressful process for most mums. Morning sickness, fatigue, ankle swelling, and other ailments can make what should be an exciting time rather difficult. Relaxing is a vital part of ensuring a healthy baby as stress can cause obstacles before and during birth. Many women have benefited from getting massages during their term and received great results. Having massage therapy when pregnant can help to ease anxieties and tension in the body and mind. It is a great compliment to a woman's regular prenatal routine. Massaging can help improve back pain, joint pain, and circulation throughout the body. It can help women to sleep better at night, and reduce the symptoms of depression and other mood changes brought about by elevated or spastic hormones. Massage therapy can increase serotonin, dopamine, and other chemicals in your brain to improve your mental health and wellbeing. When getting a massage, Leonie will concentrate on problem areas such as the pelvis, lower back, joints, and head. She can provide your with pillows or cushions to give full support to Mother and 'bump'. Depending on what stage or trimester a woman is in, she may wish to change her positions during the massage, like laying on her side or back if close to her due date. Since migraines and headaches are common during some pregnancies, Leonie can concentrate on relieving this with detailed head and neck massage. Pregnancy massages can be an effective way to make the nine months you have with your infant more enjoyable and stress-free.
