Pregnancy Massage Therapist & Experienced Midwife

Wendy Proctor experienced Pregnancy massage therapist and qualified Midwife offers a range of massage therapies in Bristol.

As an NHS Midwife but have been interested in Complementary Therapies especially massage for the last 19 years.  I am married and live with my husband and daughter in Montpelier, Bristol, and my family live close by.

I been qualified for over 19 years in a range of therapies which grows each year. Due to the specialist nature of the Pregnancy Massage qualification I am able to massage women during the first trimester; during labour and also higher risk clients for example those with diabetes, pregnancy induced hypertension, using a unique blend of Shiatsu and massage techniques.

Since qualifying as a complementary therapist I have been interested in women’s health issues.  I have seen over the years how complementary therapies have a positive effect on my clients.

The benefit of massage are it increases circulation of both blood and lymph which helps to eliminate toxins from the body, slows down the pulse rate, lowers blood pressure, releases tension built up in muscle, tones underworked muscle or weak muscle and relieves cramp.

The psychological benefits are that it can be relaxing, uplifting depression and despair, relieving panic or anger and the feeling of touch is a basic human behavioural need and is so important for both mental and physical health.

My qualifications are with the Association of Physical and Natural Therapies (APNT), in which I hold current membership Federation Holistic Therapies (FHT), and I’m insured with Hiscox Insurance.

I work from my comfortable home in Montpelier,

74 Shaftesbury Avenue, Montpelier, Bristol, BS6 5LY and offer day-time and evening treatments.

For mobile massage in your home please add £15 to the treatment price
