Terms & Conditions

Bellies & Bubs Etiquette

Arriving on Time

  • Punctuality and Paperwork

    At an initial appointment you will be required to complete a health and information form, please arrive 5 - 10 minutes earlier to allow time for parking and completing paperwork. Please be aware that running late, may mean your treatment time will be reduced, to ensure other clients are not inconvenienced. The full fee may still be charged.

Contraindications of Massage

When Massage is not recommended

  • 0 - 12 Weeks

    Massage is not recommended in the first 12 weeks of pregnancy, to allow the body to settle into the pregnancy, whilst the placenta begins to take over the functionality of the pregnancy. We recommend waiting until after your Nuchal Transcluency Scan.
  • Conditions

    If pregnant with Vasa Previa, elevated blood pressure, associated with headaches and spotty or blurred vision, as well as oedema and protein on urinalysis (this can be an indication of pre-eclampsia); cholestasis (a liver imbalance), PUPP (pregnancy rash).

    Please wait at least 1 week after an Iron Infusion, particularly during pregnancy, before having a massage, so as not to overload the Liver and Gall Bladder, as toxins may be released from stimulating the lymphatic and circulatory systems

  • Surgery

    Massage is not recommended in the first six weeks post-surgery. This includes a c-section, manual removal of placenta and PPH requiring transfusion.
  • DVT

    Any history of DVT
  • Blood work/Vaccinations/Iron Infusions

    Please allow at least 24-48 hours after having any blood tests, particularly GTT/Full Blood Count/Antibody Screen; Flu vaccination and 72 hours after Whooping Cough Vaccination or Anti-D injection and at least a week after an Iron Infusion.

    This will allow the lymphatics, liver and iron stores to rest, without additional load and excretion via Liver/Gall.
