Pregnancy Client Testimonials

• I was referred to Uduak by a friend who’d received pregnancy massage from her and recommended her treatments. These were indeed fantastic, convenient in my home, relieving aches and tension, helping me to relax and enjoy pregnancy.

• MAFE: The course of Udy’s massage followed the needs of my body and baby as we got to know her hands. From a gentle brush up the spine to a bit more vigorous pressure across my back muscles, Udy allowed enough time between different sections so I could really get the full benefit of her massage. It was a very feminine experience where my pelvis and shoulders released tension, my upper body felt spacious, and the region around my forehead felt open and alive. I really liked the way she ended the massage with placing my hands around my heart and womb – it almost felt like I was directly touching the skin of my baby’s head which was a lovely way of connecting with her.

• Udy’s massages made such a difference to helping me approach the birth with more confidence and calm, not just physically but also mentally and emotionally. She adjusts the massage each time to suit what you need that week – working out all the body kinks from the last trimester very effectively. And having had several reiki sessions with other practitioners, i was very impressed with her energy work, felt very real and tangible results.
