    Looking for masseuse-pre and post natal

    Would like to find a masseuse for my aches prior to birth (back, legs) and also a traditional one for after birth to help with shrinking the tummy. I am looking for the traditional massage which is common in Malay/Indonesia/Chinese/Indian community and it would be great if I can get recommenedations on someone that can visit the home to do a series of massages at a reasonable price.

    Hello SFGAL!

    Hope you are doing well!

    I did go to Frederique spa for a prenatal massage and it was very nice. I know this doesn't answer your question about in-house massages, but if you don't mind going to them, I found it worth while. The price was reasonable to high(compared to European and U.S. prices) - $HK 680. You can check out their pregnancy services at http://www.frederiquespa.com.hk/treatments/

    See you next Tuesday.

    SFGal,

    I used an Indian Masseuse. Her contact # is here.

    Her English isn't very good. Best to call in the evening as one of her flatmates does and will pass on the msg.

    Thank you for the recommendations guys.

    Rani, how does Indian traditional massage for pre and post pregnancy differ from the massages at the spas? Are there any special techniques and oils used to help ease the sore muscles and tighten the tummy?

    SF Gal, I only did post-natal massages. We used sweet almond oil. She does the tummy, and helped me with blocked ducts. She also massaged D and gave him a bath. She then swaddled him and he would sleep for an hour while she massaged me.

    Hi Rani,

    Post natal massage is for natural birth only, right? For CS, you can't do any massage, correct me if i'm wrong. thanks.
