From muscle aches wearing you down to emotional waves throwing you off, pregnancy is no walk in the park.
Although you may have seen plenty of women go through this journey before, that knowledge doesn't make it any easier.
All those hormones triggering off, the extra weight you're carrying, the weird thoughts that enter your head for no apparent reason...
And, when you combine it with trying to live your life with all the other stresses going on?
Well, you deserve a medal.
But let's be serious, right now a medal is of absolutely no use to you.
What are you going to do, wear it around your neck and add even more weight?
What you need is a way to get rid of the muscle pain, the cramps, the thoughts...
You deserve a massage.
Not just any kind of massage though, one that is specifically tailored for pregnant women.
One that takes into account the problem areas.
One that considers the health and well-being of your baby too.
One that makes you feel normal again!
You (and your baby) deserve a pregnancy massage.
What is A Pregnancy massage?
Although the moves used during pregnancy massage aren't too different from other Western massage techniques, there are some key changes that you'll notice.
In particular, the positions you lie in during your treatment will be changed to accommodate your bump and make you feel more comfortable.
Additionally, some areas of your body will require extra care to make sure that your baby is safe.
To prevent any risk to your baby, we only carry out treatments upon women who have been pregnant for at least 12 weeks. After this point, you can have a pregnancy massage right up until (and after) the birth of your little one.
why choose Deserved Massage?
Experienced Pregnancy Therapists
We understand that putting your body in someone else's hands requires trust. Even more so when you are carrying a little one too. That's why our pregnancy therapists have years of experience in helping mums during pregnancy through massage.
Whilst pregnant, it's pretty common to visit your doctor for check-ups. However, it's impossible to relax in a clinical setting, but unfortunately some massage therapy spaces look far too clinical. At Deserved Massage, our space is quiet, cosy and dimly let so that you can just drift off while we do our work.
Consultation Time Included
Another gripe that some people have with massage treatments is that they pay for an hour treatment and then they only get 45 minutes or so after taking into account for changing and consultation time. We thought that was unfair and therefore make sure that, as long as you arrive on time, you get the full amount of treatment time you pay for.
Lastly, our studio is located in Finniestion which is slap bang in the middle of the West End and City Centre of Glasgow which makes it easy for you to get to.

- Louise, Pregnancy Massage Client
"Had a 90-min pregnancy massage today, Tara was absolutely amazing! Loved it so much that I booked another one (this time 60 min) in 3 weeks time. I will be probably coming back until the end of my term, as it really brings relief to my sore hips and back. I'm sure I will be back to try other types of massage in the future too."
