Catherine has always had a keen interest in massage. After having two children, and experiencing first-hand the musculoskeletal impact it had on her own body, she decided to specialise in Pregnancy and Post Natal massage.
She is passionate about supporting women throughout this stage of their lives and has undertaken various training to ensure they receive a high level of care.

On booking your initial appointment, you will receive a booking confirmation email with links to complete your patient intake forms before your appointment.
Before the session you will be asked to complete a Pre-screening form. This allows us to obtain your medical details and screen you before you have your appointment. During your session we will have a short consultation to better understand why you have chosen to have a massage.
The massage will then take place in the side lying position and you will be supported by pillows so that you and your bump feel comfortable.
We will position you on a comfy massage table facing down into a face cradle. If this is not comfortable for you due to breastfeeding or c-section scar, we can perform the massage in the side lying position. Once we have worked over your back we will turn you over and work on your front including your abdomen (if this is something you are comfortable with).

During pregnancy, your body changes enormously. As it changes shape and your posture shifts, the muscles and soft tissues become overworked and stretched which leads to many different aches and pains throughout your body.
Pregnancy Massage can help to manage and support your changing body as well as improve your posture, balance your hormones, revitalize your mind, facilitate a feeling of well-being and prepare your mind, body and baby for birth and motherhood.
According to the American Pregnancy Association, “Research shows prenatal massage therapy can help reduce anxiety, decrease symptoms of depression, relieve muscle aches and joint pains, and improve labour outcomes and newborn health.
”You can receive a Pregnancy massage from 12 weeks up until you go into labour.
Post Natal massage is just as important as a Pregnancy Massage and having regular massages can be very beneficial for ALL MUMS.
Pregnancy, childbirth, and motherhood put an enormous strain on our minds and bodies. During this period you’ll find your posture has shifted and this can have an impact on your body; how it moves and how you hold yourself and where you hold tension.
This massage aims to release pre and post natal related tension, whilst also providing a space for you to relax and restore your energy. It uses techniques to help soften muscles which are overworked, stretched, and fatigued from pregnancy, birth, feeding, carrying and everything else that involves being a mum!
You can have a Post Natal Massage from 6 weeks postpartum. To book your first massage, click on the link and select either a post natal massage with Catherine or her pregnancy massage in Horsham.
