Noreen has been providing pregnancy massage in Bantry for nearly 20 years years. Pregnancy massage
is a safe and gentle method of supporting your body through
the natural changes of pregnancy. Pregnancy massage soothes any tension
or discomfort the mother is experiencing. The mother will also
be shown simple exercises, which she can use to relax her
mind and body. Each treatment is adapted to the mother's
needs, which are changing from week to week. The treatment
is also adapted for each trimester, for example in late
pregnancy the treatment would be focused on birth preparation
and making the mother as comfortable as possible. A
combination of massage with energy work, Reiki, will be used to ease
aches and pains and reduce stress. The birthing partner may
attend a treatment and be shown some simple massage strokes,
which can be used during the pregnancy and in labour.

Benefits Of Infant Massage
Touch is one of the most significant and nurturing early
experiences your baby will have. Research has shown that these early experiences
can affect many aspects of our lives. Nurturing touch has long-term benefits and
can impact how we think, feel, and relate to others, and most importantly, how
we value and care for ourselves. Infant massage greatly enhances the early
bonding relationship between parents and caregivers and their babies. By using
gentle, tactile stimulation along with loving verbal communication, a wonderful
bonding experience is shared. Strokes can be either stimulating or relaxing,
depending on your baby’s needs and developmental level.

Noreen teaches baby massage to the Babytalk group which is run in the HSE centre in the Maritime hotel Bantry by the Bantry Community Development Centre.
Alternatively, Noreen also provides private one to one classes in her massage clinic. Noreen keeps the one to one classes at a reasonable rate as she feels baby massage is something every baby should have the oppurtunity of experiencing.
Whether you attend the group or private classes all you need to bring is yourself and your baby. Noreen provides the oil and notes to take home and the room is set up for your massage.
is the Japanese word for universal life energy. Reiki
combines the utilization of the lifeforce that is present in
all living things -ki- with the warm reassurance and healing
power of human touch. Reiki is a gentle yet powerful
non-invasive treatment, the client remains fully clothed
throughout the treatment. During the treatment the practitioner
will place their hands gently on different positions of the
body and let the healing energy of Reiki flow. This increases
and balances energy, releases stress and deeply relaxes, helps
release emotions and assists the body's natural ability to
heal. Reiki is a beautiful, deeply relaxing and recharging treatment. It is safe in pregnancy and for people with serious health problems.
