Mum-To-Be Lava Shell Treatment

Lava Shells Mum-to-Be Nurturing massage is an ingenious treatment which creates a blissful combination of relaxation and stimulation to ease away aches and pains particularly focusing on the back, hips and legs as the pregnancy progresses. The treatment also aims to improve energy levels, assisting circulation and alleviating puffiness and fluid build-up particularly in the legs and ankles.  The clever combination of gentle – but effective - warmth and cold assists with pain relief and reduces muscle spasm in over-worked muscles. This specially developed massage effectively supports the Mum-to-Be throughout the crucial stages of her pregnancy and the miraculous changes to her body.

Pregnancy massage has many benefits including a positive impact on the reduction of emotional stress, which makes for a happy pregnancy; it is also known to improve back, pelvic pain and inflammation which can be secondary to a change in posture. It reduces tension, fatigue and headaches and can assist sleep.  Pregnancy massage is suitable from the second trimester and during the post-natal period. This improves the sense of well being and brings much needed nutrients to the hard-working muscles and organs, muscle tone and tissue quality are improved which helps to relax and rejuvenate the Mum-to-Be at a very special time in her life.

Lava Shells Mum-To-Be Nurturing Massage will quickly become the treatment of choice for all expectant Mums – not only are the shells beautiful in appearance, their silky smoothness glides over the skin to give the most luxurious touch and they are non-porous so there are no concerns regarding hygiene.  All of this in addition to the deeply relaxing warmth of the tropics combined with a refreshing glacial coolness certainly puts the “treat” in treatment!  

Clare Anderson, Managing Director of Shared Beauty Secrets has said:

We’re thrilled to unveil our latest treatment at the Baby Show this weekend and we’re confident our new addition, due September 2015, will be the treatment of choice for pregnant Mums everywhere!  Until now the heat from our Lava Shells would have been contra-indicated for use during pregnancy; however we’ve carefully developed this bespoke antenatal treatment using gentle heat, counter-balanced with cool shells to maintain the client’s core temperature without any risks of over-heating, whilst still delivering a deeply relaxing and effective treatment.  Our mum’s-to-be will be treated by fully qualified therapists, supported throughout their treatment using the highly acclaimed Comfy Client Cushion which is endorsed by healthcare professionals and favoured by the NHS. Mum’s can rest assured that they are in very safe hands.

We’ve been working with Jaki Bourne, Holistic Therapist and Pregnancy Massage Practitioner to devise this hot-off-the-press new treatment. 

This is what Jaki has to say about pregnancy massage

As a Mum myself, I believe that pregnancy is one of the most life-changing and life-enriching experiences.  Pregnancy itself can be a thrilling, exhausting, exciting, un-nerving, topsy-turvy mix of emotions and physical changes.  I believe that Mum’s-to-Be should be afforded the most positive experience by accessing a range of supportive services.  I am thrilled to be a part of the #TeamLavaShells developing this new professional treatment and working with Mum’s-to-be during their amazing and very personal journey into motherhood
