My Prenatal Massage Experience with Nouri Face & Body Concepts
Valerie personally performs all the treatments for the pregnancy and post natal segment herself. She started off by preparing a freshly made high grade cold-pressed Jojoba massage aromatherapy oil. Freshly made oil will guarantee more freshness, lesser level of additives and preservatives compared to the commercially made and packed pre prepared massage oils.
I understand that Valerie is trying to make all her products as natural as possible for the health of the babies and mummies. Cold-pressed massaged oil doesn’t feel cold like what the word says, it actually feels warm during the massage and tends to have better absorption into our skin and body. Her recipe of the prepared oil has added ingredients to prevent stretch marks of which she gave me some after the massage for me to bring home for self application on my tummy.
I find Val very friendly and approachable. During my treatment, she explained to me the benefits of prenatal massage and how prenatal massage differs from general massage because there can be some risks if particular pressure points are stimulated therefore it is very important to find a therapist that knows what they are doing and is specially trained for it. Click and read my blog post on the benefits of prenatal massage. I believe prenatal care is not just about looking good during pregnancy but it plays a big part in getting back into shape after pregnancy too.
As a first time mum, I am very thankful for Val’s sharing of her knowledge and experiences on pre and post natal care with me during our small talks while doing the treatments. At least I am better prepared now in explaining to my Caucasian husband why we Asian ladies need to have 1 month confinement of which there are many things we cannot do and rules we have to follow and things we have to eat for our own good during that one month confinement after child birth.
Nouri Face & Body Concepts pre and post natal services combines a family secret of a unique technique in Thai Peranakan massage and modern cutting edge technology to provide a result oriented treatment to the new mum. The firm endorsements made by Nouri’s sexy looking mums in www.nourifbc.com speaks volumes.
The atmosphere of the treatment room felt very cozy with controlled temperature and warm dim orange lightings.
Her massage strokes felt very firm and comfortable throughout the treatment. Valerie definitely knows which spots to be firm and where to be soft when doing the massage. The massage eases the stress of pregnancy and my back ache after the treatment. At 6 months plus pregnant, my legs are starting to swell and due to my job being a real estate agent, I have to travel to many places everyday and walk here walk there. My legs especially felt so much lighter after the treatment.
I also tried their Signature Prenatal Facial, prenatal polish treatment and prenatal body cocoon treatment. Whether is it the Facial, massage, scrub or rubbing the good smelling yogurt stuff on me – Valerie took her time and never miss an inch of my skin. *Thumbs up*
