Ayurvedic Yoga Massage for Pregnancy: Imagine how blissful you feel after a great yoga class. And imagine how relaxed and nourished you feel after an excellent massage. Well, combine the two and you begin to get an idea of what this method of pregnancy massage can do for you. Ayurvedic Yoga Massage (AYM) for pregnancy combines traditional Indian deep tissue massage with yoga stretches appropriate for the pregnant body. The massage is tailored to the individual needs of each client and all sessions work on the basis of holistic therapy - the physical, emotional, mental and energetic body of the client and of the baby is taken into consideration and given attention.

Womb/ Baby Blessing Ceremony: These special sessions are for pregnant women, women who are trying to get pregnant, or women who have recently been pregnant but are no longer due to miscarriage or termination. Each ceremony is supported by a Siddha Kundalini crystal mandala to balance, strengthen and harmonise. The ceremonies move between silence and song as the practitioner creates a healing elemental vortex to empower, nourish and consecrate the receiver.

What happens: For pregnant clients the ceremonies are focused on clearing and integrating any underlying fear or anxiety, preparing to receive new life, supporting/ easing the gestation process and connecting with the spirit of the baby and blessing their life and the path ahead.

For clients who are preparing to conceive, the ceremonies are more focused on clearing and purifying the womb space and reproductive organs, connecting with the energy of the divine mother, and bringing awareness, prana (life force) and blood flow into the womb space through visualisation, bodywork, and womb pulsing (where appropriate).

For clients who have recently miscarried or terminated, the ceremonies are powerful opportunities to accelerate the healing process and metabolise their experience. The focus of these sessions is honouring and blessing any life that was in order that the womb can be restored to it’s previous state and a new cycle can begin. The energetic imprint of the foetus (and the subtle body/ spirit) is lovingly guided from the womb space and returned to source and the womb, along with the entire channel of the receiver, is cleaned and purified.

Naturally the specific intention of the session varies according to the needs of the client, as such each session is unique and unfolds organically.
