One of the most difficult things for us UK women to get our heads around is the importance of massage therapy. I was one of them. Pre-qualifying I considered a massage to be a 'treat' and certainly not as essential to our physical and mental wellbeing as a glass of water! It was only after gaining an ITEC Diploma in Holistic Massage and Anatomy and Physiology that I really appreciated how we need to change our mentality in terms of how much we actually 'need' this, how other cultures practice this as standard and how we should budget this in along with our food and other monthly expenses.


In #pregnancy it is even more beneficial to see a qualified therapist as it is such a crucial time for your overall wellbeing. Benefits of massage include but are not limited to, improved sleep, reduced anxiety, improved circulation, reduced back ache, relief from stress on joints, hydrated skin, relaxed mum-to-be and emotional support.


The KIH Bed (pronounced key) is a great pregnancy #cushion because whereas other #massage couches with a 'hole' may not support you properly and may actually put more pressure on the back, the KIH Bed is designed to support the skeletal structure, the spine is stretched in a way that supports the back and the cover is designed in such a way that your bump is supported in a hammock style drop offering the mum-to-be complete comfort and confidence that her body is not under additional pressure.
