Pregnancy Zenthai Treatment

 Pregnancy is such a special time in a woman’s life, but it can also bring along many discomforts due to many physiological, structural and psychological changes. This occurs because your body tries to adapt to accommodate both mother and child, for example, shifts in the location of your center of gravity and hormonal changes. It is vital to remember that taking care of yourself throughout pregnancy also means nurturing of your baby.


Pregnancy Zenthai treatment is adapted to suit the specific needs of pregnancy to support the overall well-being of mother and baby. The holistic approach with therapeutic touch and movement will increase lymphatic circulation and blood flow and relieve the discomforts and symptoms associated with pregnancy. Also, our aim is to balance the nervous system and increase relaxation. (Suitable for all trimesters)


A treatment is performed fully clothed and lying on a mat. A therapist will use the safe and comfortable positioning (mostly in side position) with the support of pillows, cushions and bolsters.

Common symptoms and complaints

Lower back pain / Thoracic rib pain / Pelvic and hip instability / Swelling in lower limbs and arms (oedema) / Carpal tunnel syndrome / Nausea, reflux, indigestion / Shortness of breath / Tightness around womb / Headaches / Fatigue / Emotional sensitivity


My sessions with Yumi, as a pregnant client, was incredibly rejuvenating and healing. She is very mindful of mine and the baby’s needs. Her techniques made me relaxed and I felt safe and nurtured through the process. As my abdomen grew heavier over time and my body posture changed, muscle tensions also increased. But having a zenthai shiatsu session focused on pregnant women’s body with Yumi alleviated these tensions. I felt freshened up, massaged mindfully and just simply alert and energised again.
I highly recommend it to any women who may need some tender loving care on their body. It’s a wonderful feeling to also just receive nourishing for myself! Thank Yumi! You’re amazing!

“Yumi is such a sincere and full of humanity and that reflected on her treatment.
 I had a session that brought me a surprise of healing! A huge release came with breath work during session. I felt like something from the past life issue was released and tears came out naturally. I cried like a child after the session as Yumi held me gently. I had only one word to describe my feeling at that time was gratitude - so thankful to Yumi from the bottom of my heart.
 I love Zenthai Shiatsu as you be touched so intimately and deeply with the intention of deep care and love. Also, it is not only massage but holistic therapy integration with art of Zen shiatsu and Chinese medicine. Amazing! Hightly recommend Yumi.”

So great to have the body moved this way, do yourself a favour!”
- Françoise Smith

“Excellent massage. Can highly recommend. Very unique style that is effective. Yumi understands the subtleties of Chinese/Japanese medicine that can be of great benefit to those seeking treatment. It would be wise to organise a drop off/pick up particularly after the 90mins massage as the work is very deep. Would not recommend driving home after a session.” - Steve

Yumi has a sincere and gentle presence which made me feel welcome and safe, this allowed me to fully relax and get the most out of my session. During my session with Yumi, I experienced a beautiful cycle of movement. Working with whole body and the head and neck section at the end all made me feel very good. Her advice at the end is very appropriate and supportive. I look forward to my next appointment.”
