Shiatsu in pregnancy

Nurture yourself & your baby

How you may feel during during pregnancy and after giving birth

  • Experiencing tiredness, pain in your back or pelvic 
  • Going through all kinds of emotions from sadness to joy
  • Feeling overwhelmed with the new situation
  • Coping with worries about your family and/or work life
  • Coping with insomnia or waking up frequently at night

What my clients observed after the treatment:

  • Allowing yourself to gain strength and energy
  • Focusing on your needs, while still being available to others
  • Supporting your individual recovery after giving birth 
  • Finding a new connection to your baby through touch
  • Feeling more confident in your new role of being a parent

We invited Aleksandra to come to our place.
Her sincere smiles and warm demeanor helped create an instant bond with my family, especially my young daughters (5 and 7) who received professional massage treatments for the first time.

Common questions about Shiatsu for babies and kids

1.) Can babies receive Shiatsu too?

Yes, mindful touch is a wonderful way to support the early development of babies. During a postpartum home visit I will also try to include the baby and offer a treatment for both, mum and baby.

2.) How long is a treatment for babies and kids? 

This can vary from day to day, however treatment for babies and kids are shorter than for adults. For babies 5-10 minutes are enough, for kids under 10, the treatment can last 15-20 minutes.

3.) Do you offer home treatments? 

Yes, I do. If you are interested in a home visit, please send me an Email indicating your address. I will respond to you with some possible time slots. Home treatments are available for clients located in Berlin Mitte, Wedding, Prenzlauer Berg. Additional travel fee may apply. 

4.) How is Shiatsu different from massage?

Massage therapy works primarily on the physical body, with the focus to release tension in the muscles. Shiatsu looks at a person more holistically. For me this always involves mental health too. The session is performed traditionally on the floor. You are fully clothed and no oils are used.

They talked about how they liked her warm and gentle touches for a long time afterwards and started imitating her touches on each other and on us the parents.
