Welcome to Baby Alchemy; we specialise in the giving and teaching of aromatherapy pregnancy massage while running baby massage and aromatherapy courses across Leicestershire.
Aromatherapy Pregnancy Massage
Pregnancy is a very special time; our body adapts allowing a new and precious
life to grow within us. During pregnancy we undergo numerous physical and
emotional changes that often put differing levels of demands upon us.
Sometimes these stresses start small and get more intense, yet sometimes they
come out of the blue. Baby Alchemy offers bespoke aromatherpay pregnancy
massage across to help elevate many of the strains and stresses that pregnancy
often causes. Pregnancy massage techniques can also be taught
to your birthing partner or partners in preparation for labour. Baby Alchemy
offers aromatherapy pregnancy massage throughout the entire nine months of the pregnancy as the benefits of pregnancy massage at all stages are undisputed. Yet it is important to understand that the massage you will receive at each stage is very different. The use of essential oils is something that will be discussed and used on a one to one basis and will not be used in a massage during the first trimester. However essential oils can be safely vaporised and used in a variety of other ways during this time. The benefits of essential oils during pregnancy are truly wonderful and very well documented.
When receiving a wonderfully relaxing aromatherapy pregnancy massage from Baby Alchemy you may experience many of these evidence based benefits:
Reduces swelling in hands, feet and ankles
Lessens sciatic pain
Eases muscular discomforts in areas like the low back & neck, calf cramps, it also helps with tension and tightening that can be experienced throughout the body
Tones lose muscles, relaxes tense muscles and can help increase flexibility
Helps with relaxation which in turn can decrease insomnia
Increases blood and lymph flow which can help increase the elimination of toxins through the circulatory and lymphatic systems, this can also help with fatigue
Increases oxygen in the blood, sometimes up to 10-15% after a massage
Strengthens the immune system
Stimulates the release of endorphins, the body's natural pain killers, into the brain and nervous system
Can help to relieve anxiety and depression
Helps increase blood circulation, which in turn delivers more oxygen and nutrients to the mother and baby
Can be used during the birth as well as after making both experiences easier and more comfortable
Eases the stress mothers can feel after the birth
There are many more benefits, but this list will hopefully give you an idea of how beneficial pregnancy massage, especially when combined with the use of natural & organic essential oils, can be.

Baby massage is simple and fun to learn as well as being so very effective. Calm, relaxed and happy parents create happy, content little babies.
Countless research studies have been published illustrating why massage for a baby is so vitally important, but it is the feedback from parents that is also incredibly valuable. Here is what a few of my parents have said after enjoying a course:
“Thank you so much for a wonderful course. Billy loved every moment, he was full of smiles but so relaxed. We always looks forward to a massage before bed now. We always vaporise essential oils now too and they are wonderful. Thank you.”
“Thank you, our time doing baby massage with you was a very special time - it was so calm and wonderful, the world just stopped and I could give my all to Alex. Than you again.”
“When Poppy cries now I have a range of techniques to try and I feel so much better knowing there is something that I can do to help her. We absolutely loved the course and still meet up with the other mums every week for a play date. Thank you so much.”
“Wow who knew how much aromatherapy could help Amalie as well as the whole family. Your course was so much fun and I feel like I know Amalie so much better, if that makes sense! You were so calm and welcoming, thank you xx”
