Promote your overall health & well-being through abdominal massage
"I have just received my second abdominal massage with Natalie, and once again found it one of the most nurturing and relaxing treatments I've ever had. The next day I could really notice a difference; my belly and lower back felt much more alive and energised. Natalie is a remarkable therapist totally dedicated to her work and I cannot recommend her enough to anyone needing support and guidance with their health and emotional life." (JD)
Bringing your body into balance and alignment
Abdominal-Sacral Massage and Fertility Massage are both specialist forms of abdominal massage that focus on supporting the optimal health of the reproductive, digestive, and urinary systems of the body. A combination of both therapies is offered to gently bring the organs within the abdominal area into proper alignment, releasing pressure and strengthening the surrounding muscles and ligaments. This in turn improves blood, nerve, and lymph flow. The increased circulation to the digestive system, where 80% of our immune system resides supports optimal health, and the techniques used soothe the digestive tract encouraging natural movement and elimination.
For women, the massage increases circulation to the uterus, ovaries, and fallopian tubes, promoting hormonal balance and easing menstrual health challenges. It helps correct misalignment of the uterus, assists the body in eliminating old stagnant blood, and gently breaks down adhesions and scar tissue. It has traditionally been used to support optimal fertility and is very beneficial in preparing the womb for pregnancy and in realigning the abdominal organs postpartum.

What clients say:
"A friend recommended I see Natalie for an abdominal massage as she said it was a wonderfully nourishing treatment. Following on from a miscarriage, I was trying to get pregnant again but it was proving a little tricky. I was initially a bit wary that I might not like having my tummy rubbed, but it proved to be a fabulous treatment and incredibly relaxing. I was due to ovulate a few days later and Natalie said she could tell which side she thought was going to ovulate. To my astonishment, a day or two later I felt a little sensation on the left hand side of my tummy where Natalie had pointed to, and I knew that this was my body ovulating (which I’d never felt before), and what a great signal! I fell pregnant immediately and I know that Natalie’s magical massage played a part in making this happen. Wonderful! And now I am happy to tell friends what an amazing treatment it is and perhaps more importantly, what a fantastic practitioner Natalie is." JC
"When I first came to see Natalie I had been trying to conceive for over 7 years and was desperate to find something to relax me after numerous failed IVF cycles and to try and make my body feel human again. In the hope of maybe trying to conceive naturally after finally being diagnosed with Endometriosis after a long fertility journey. On meeting Natalie I was struck by her kindness and empathy. She is so extremely professional in all that she does. The massage is extremely relaxing and I feel as if I am really being looked after. I always look forward to my treatments, as I know I am going to feel relaxed and my womb supported. Natalie always make me feel supported and if there is anything that she hears of or reads that she thinks will benefit me she always emails me. I would wholeheartedly recommend fertility massage with Natalie to anyone trying to conceive. She is extremely skilled and knowledgeable and the massage relaxes the whole body - specifically concentrating on the womb and reproductive area by a qualified practitioner." CS
"Natalie gave me a series of three abdominal-sacral massages. I had been struggling with regaining my sense of self and confidence after my pregnancy and a rather hard few years. After the first massage, in which I had the most amazing sense of emotional release and connection to my body, I found my confidence in myself again. The physical pain and bloating that I had been experiencing diminished and I was left feeling fantastic. The further two massages really helped to deepen the healing and each time I was left feeling present to my body and to my emotional needs. A truly wonderful experience and a treatment I would highly recommend." TK
"For many years I have had a bloated and uncomfortable stomach. I am very energetic but my tummy always pains me and looks unglamorous. I was introduced to Natalie by a trusted friend who had had her magic hands work wonders on her. Nothing but praise for Natalie. So I drove to Bristol for an appointment to see whether she would work magic on me. I was not disappointed. Natalie is so gentle that you just can't believe what she is doing to you. She worked on my stomach and reduced the gas and stuck matter that usually causes me such anguish. I looked a size smaller after my appointment and felt clear and well, without any medical intrusion. Natalie then advised me about my diet, guiding me on what to eat and how to eat. Natalie is one of those gifted individuals that have focused their lives on helping others obtain better health. I am fortunate to have met her and grateful for her guidance and treatments." ZG
