"When Gemma our beautician asked in the office if anyone would volunteer for the new ESPA pregnancy spa treatment to be demonstrated on them I jumped at the chance. I’m not pregnant so in some parts of the massage we did need to imagine I was. The Espa pre and post natal treatment is suitable from 12 weeks of pregnancy and you can have the treatment as many times as you like, you could have one every day, once a month or just as a once off! After you’ve had one treatment your definitely want to book in again as it is truly relaxing.
The same techniques were applied to the other side of my body after turning over. After both sides of my body had been massaged I was put in an arm chair position on the bed and my arms, hips and legs were lifted with towels placed under them. Once positioned comfortably my (imaginary) bump was gently massaged, if you would rather not have your bump touched just let the therapist know, this part is not compulsory, however, I am told it really helps with stretch marks and is designed specifically for bumps in mind.
The legs and feet are then massaged again to help relieve any tension. To finish off a scalp mask is applied and pressure points on the scalp are pushed. If you’re having difficulty sleeping, experiencing tension, or just in need of some pampering I would definitely recommend this treatment and I guarantee you will not be disappointed".
