About Sarah

Hello I'm Sarah, a birth doula and massage therapist.

I specialise in maternity massage to accompany my birth doula services and it's a most effective method of treating and precenting many aspects and symptoms of pregnancy and post-natal recovery, both physically and emotionally. These treatments are aimed at nourishing the new or expecting parent so they can better nurture their baby and ease those transitions into parenthood.

I also offer a very unique style of deep tissue massage therapy. This technique blends Eastern and Western practices, taking much influence from multiple bodywork disciplines and traditional Chinese medicine. I have been harnessing elements of Tai Chi whilst practicing this particular method to help bring balance to myself and my clients simultaneously! This is very much a two way treatment where we both walk away feeling rejuvenated, grounded and present.

I am based at Milly's Magic Yurt in Chilham and carrying out massage treatments from there, advance bookings only.

I am delighted to be offering this remote service over the phone or on zoom.

As a doula a large part of my role is giving informational and emotional support. Pregnancy is a time of great change, and support is necessary during these strange times even more than ever. Due to current restrictions I cannot continue to offer the physical comfort that massage therapy provides, however I am available to continue to offer support and information remotely.

I have been offering maternity support services to expecting families for over 5 years and have much experience and resources to draw from to help give you the information you may need, or just be an unbiased and non judgemental person in the field to share your journey with, in complete confidentiality.

Red Tent Doulas and DONA certified.

This method of holistic deep tissue massage is an East-meets-West fusion of techniques that sink into and slowly releases the deeper layers of the body's tissues. Whether for chronic pain or treating life's discomforts built up over a long period of time, this style of massage is remedial as well as therapeutic.

I use massage wax rather than oil to get good traction and connection with skin, muscles and fascia needed for this kind of work. I use a lot of palmar strokes, loose fists, forearms, some thai stretches, shiatsu techniques, compressions, meridian work, trigger point therapy and myofascial release.

Depending on reasons for wanting this particular type of massage, a course of treatments may be recommended for maximum benefit or treating on-going issues.

Please note a telephone consultation will be required prior to therapy session. This is to ensure maximum benefit of the treatment duration.

I offer tailor made pregnancy massage treatments to nurture a mother-to-be in one of the most important chapters in a woman's life.

I use a variety of techniques and pressures that encourage oxygen flow and stimulate oxytocin. My aim is always to restore a sense of balance and calm while alleviating discomforts of pregnancy. Some symptoms may include:
flat feet
sore knees
digestive issues
respiration issues
carpel tunnel syndrome
swollen handsarmslegsfeet
contracted muscles
back pain

During this session mother is invited to carve out that moment of peace and tranquility into her self-care regime as she focuses on growing and nourishing her unborn child.

Using unscented oils, I massage mother-to-be in side-lying positions, making sure she is fully supported and comfortable. I finish with mother face up, on my specialised table with a tilted back and wedge under one hip to ensure comfort and safety.
