Massage Therapy Services

Massage isn't just a luxury service or a one-off splurge. The medical benefits of massage go well beyond the temporary muscle relief. Pregnancy massage is especially beneficial for assisting in the relaxation of your body, and maintaining a healthy environment for your growing baby.

If you're not sure, feel free to send through any questions or concerns you might have or arrange a time to have a phone conversation about anything that's on your mind.

Health fund rebates are available for all massage services!

Please note, your temperature will be taken prior to your treatment commencing. If you have any symptoms or meet any of the above criteria, please call or text the clinic so we can reschedule as you will need to stay home to protect yourself as well as our staff and other clients.

Prenatal Massage

This is our most popular treatment and due to our level of qualification is safe for any stage of pregnancy. Using our table which is specifically designed to support your growing “bump”. This table allows you to lie safely and comfortably in any position including on your stomach! Our treatments combine relaxation and remedial techniques to give you relief from many conditions associated with pregnancy including back pain, sciatic pain, carpal tunnel, headaches, leg cramps and swelling.

From my clients:

I highly recommend Ange for Pregnancy massage. She was professional and caring and made me feel so relaxed when I was heavily pregnant for all my pregnancies. I went multiple times as she is so good! ~ Bree

Postnatal Massage

A massage that is safe almost immediately after delivery but most commonly required 2-4 weeks postnatal. This treatment helps to give relief to neck and shoulder tension that develops from feeding (breast or bottle) as well as back pain as a result of delivery or from the extra sitting to feed and the bending associated with newborns. This treatment is fantastic at helping mums gain some much-needed rest and “me time”. However, babies are always welcome at these treatments and feeding/ skin to skin time can definitely be accommodated - especially if mum and bub don’t get a chance for much bonding at home.

Induction Massage

If you're looking to naturally encourage labour from 37 weeks, then this treatment is ideal. It's the perfect combination of relaxation, essential oils and acupressure to stimulate the body's natural progression into labour. Come wearing your comfortable clothing as this treatment is done through towels and clothing to minimise contact. While lying on the table your therapist will apply pressure to known points including on your legs, feet and hands to stimulate labour and also calm the body and mind.

Need a little more?

Then why not book a 15-minute add-on to your treatment? We also offer 15-minute add-ons to any treatment. You can choose from a soothing foot scrub, great for dry and/or swollen feet and tired legs or a relieving scalp treatment to help with any sinus congestion or recurring headaches….or both add-ons for a well-deserved full on pampering!

Remedial Massage

Just because you’re not pregnant, doesn’t mean you’re not entitled to a massage! I get asked everyday if we do “non-pregnant massage” And the answer is YES! As these treatments are amazing, you don’t have to stop getting them once the babies have started to grow up. Women’s health is the core focus, however, I can also accommodate partners, brothers, sisters, mums and dads. I’m always hearing how much a husband needs this or how much a mum would love this treatment. Let them know Maternal Instincts Massage does regular massage too!

Oncology Massage

Oncology massage is a specialist form of massage therapy utilised to compliment other traditional cancer treatments such as chemotherapy.

Massage and human touch has been proven to reduce the side effects of other treatments and improve general quality of life. Oncology massage requires specialist training to ensure the massage therapist works safely and effectively with any person who may have a diagnosis or history of cancer.

Angela completed her training with Oncology Massage Limited (OML) in 2015, who uphold the standards of the Society for Oncology Massage (S4OM). Outpatient services are available in hospital, at home and in clinic, contact her to discuss the options available.

Recommended Health Partners

We have relationships with a number of pregnancy-related service providers that we know personally and highly recommend. Feel free to ask us about any of these recommendations.

Chiropractic Support

Many women go through lower back pain and secondary muscle spasm during pregnancy due to structural adaptations and change in load distribution within the pelvic structures. As there will a change in her hormone levels eg progesterone, estrogen and relaxin, this could lead to sciatica, pinched nerve sensation, shoulder and neck discomfort. Direct pressure of the foetus onto the lumbosacral nerve root is also a common cause of pain. Chiropractic prenatal care can help safely address these issues by relieving the pain and discomfort naturally in her back through safe and gentle joint mobilisation and stretches to allow the mother to comfortably go through her pregnancy and daily routine with comfort. Prenatal chiropractic care also ensures the pelvis is in good alignment for an ease during the birthing process.
