Alternative and Complementary Therapies

Alvechurch 

Physiotherapy and Acupuncture

Is back pain or pelvic girdle pain affecting your ability to enjoy your pregnancy?

Do you want specific advice on how to maintain your strength and function during pregnancy and to help prepare you for the challenges of motherhood?

If yes, then please contact me at Pink Zebra Physiotherapy and Acupuncture Clinic to arrange a specific assessment and treatment options.

Acupuncture in pregnancy has been shown to help reduce pelvic girdle pain, and there are some great exercises that you can do to help stretch and strengthen muscles that are working hard in your pregnancy.

I have been a physiotherapist for nearly 10 years and over that time I have developed a special interest in the areas of acupuncture and women’s health.  I am a Mum to two young children and until recently worked for the NHS at the Birmingham Women’s Hospital. 

 

I want to take the time to listen to your needs and work with you on a journey to recovery.  Be a better you!

I am based at the Millhouse Clinics, The Mill, Radford Road, Alvechurch B48 7LD

Element Earth

Pregnancy Massage

My name is Claire and I work as a Holistic Massage Therapist, specialising in Pregnancy
Massage. I have undertaken excellent pregnancy massage training with Suzanne Yates at
WellMother.


I offer massage sessions which are focussed on you, and what your needs are at the time we
work together. I aim to offer a space and experience that supports you in nurturing and
relaxing your body (which in turn nurtures and relaxes your baby), releases overwhelm, and
enables you to feel comfortable and engaged in your changing body. It’s somewhere that
you can be focussed on how you feel and what you need. Time-out to be nurtured, where
you can switch off from outside noise and demands and connect with yourself and the
growing life inside you.


Sessions last an hour and a half, in order to really give you time to let go and connect. I
support you through guided visualisations, breathing exercises, movement, pelvic floor
awareness and massage. The massage, which also includes gentle shiatsu work can take
place using a birthing ball, massage table or a futon on the floor. I can work with you at any
stage of pregnancy.


Pregnancy massage can feel like a ‘pampering’ experience, but actually, massage for
pregnant women has been practised in different cultures around the world for many years.
It could be considered an essential to pre- natal care. Not only does the experience aim to
prevent and alleviate any physical discomfort, but it may also support increased blood flow
(which is great for your growing baby), improved digestion, better sleep, reduced stress and
greater sense of emotional wellbeing.
