Choose Your Session:

You may choose any Thai Massage session that appeals to you. I would suggest to book for no longer that 90 minutes for pre birth massages. Traditionally The herbal compress massage si used during the late stages of pregnancy and for Post pregnancy care. But, of course of heat does not appeal to you..go with the one that most suits your needs.

imgres-2-1We will supply you with clothing for your session. Should you be in your last trimester or would like to bring your own clothing please make sure it is loose fitting and of natural material like cotton or bamboo.

We use a comfortable large mat on the floor with a huge assortment of pillows and supportive tools making it  easy to move around on and get comfortable.

During the Herbal compress massage the herbs are steamed in the room making it warm and inviting. The room is candle lit with a  trickle of a fountain and soothing music…this is truly where that magic starts.
