Pregnancy treatments that relax the tension at Stephanies
Savour some soothing time just for you with our beautifully designed spa treatments for our mums to be.
Our new mums to be will leave our day spas in a state of relaxation, feeling refreshed, nurtured and tension free. Growing a baby is a whole lot of hard work! Pregnancy is a very special time for new parents, but with all the excitement and joy, pregnancy can also bring along many discomforts. The most common complaints we see and hear from our pregnancy mums are sore hips and lower back, swollen feet and hands and overall tiredness.
Our qualified therapists will customise a treatment to your needs, helping to relieve tension, calm your mind, and melt away individual aches and pains.
Feel nurtured, serene and tension-free.
Let us take your pregnancy on a beautiful nurturing journey. Throughout your treatment, our special pregnancy pillow will help remove any pain and discomfort and will support your hips and joints. This will allow you to relax and enjoy your nourishing treatment with extra cushioning and comfort.
Pregnancy massage therapy is a special type of massage which is adapted to suit the specific needs of pregnancy. Our qualified massage therapists will customise our massage techniques based around your needs and concerns at any stage of pregnancy, from the first trimester and beyond.
We will help alleviate any discomfort you may be having such as lower back pain, tension, swelling, leg cramps, and insomnia.
Are you prone to nausea? Please advise your Beauty therapist.
Pregnancy massage can help you with:
Neck and shoulder pain
Swelling (Edema) in feet, ankles and hands
Low back and hip pain
Sciatica (sharp/shooting pain or numbness/tingling down your leg and feet)
Increased energy, better sleep
Reduced stress hormones, reduced depression and anxiety (also improve outcomes for the baby in utero)
Increased blood flow and lymphatic circulation, assisting removal of waste
During pregnancy, you may also experience changes in your nails; your nails may grow faster and stronger, so it may also be really nice to get them done. It's also possible that your nails may be weaker and break more easily than usual. If that's the case for you, tell your Beauty Therapist so they know to be gentle.
At Stephanies we will only use traditional nail polish. It is recommended to avoid acrylic and gel nails while pregnant. The chemicals in gel nails haven't been well studied.

A herbal infusion of Sandalwood, Chamomile and French Lavender deeply soothe, repair, and nourish the skin before bringing mother and baby together in deep relaxation with a Babymoon massage.
This is truly the ultimate body ritual for both mother and baby.
Your feet are introduced to the warmth of a botanical foot immersion before a deeply exfoliating full body skin treatment redefines tone and hydration with resurfacing botanical actives. The body is enveloped with the luxurious textures of your selected prescriptive cocoon before gently being swaddled for warmth and enhanced skin infusion.
Awaken with a beautiful application of our Luxe Body Cream. A heavenly moisture locking skin ritual cream with a garland of perfumed petals, leaving your body feeling deeply hydrated and restored.
If there have been any complications with your pregnancy, we kindly ask to discuss with your doctor or health care provider if the treatments are safe with your condition prior to your appointment. After all, we want the best possible outcome for you and your baby!
Massage therapies should only be conducted after the first trimester.
