Marvellous Massaging Stick

soothing + calming

Our Marvellous Massaging Stick is ideal throughout pregnancy, especially in the third trimester and for labour. 

This midwife-developed pregnancy massaging stick is expertly blended, with Frankincense oil, known to calm and ground, geranium oil to relax and shea butter is hydrating and can help reduce skin inflammation. During your massage, take a moment to pause, breathe deeply and inhale the beautiful natural fragrance of the oils as the balm melts into your skin.

Our Marvellous Massaging Stick multi-tasks as a no mess way to apply the balm and, also, as a massager itself, making self-massage super easy and helping you to apply gentle pressure.

Massage is an effective way of relieving tension during pregnancy and can be especially beneficial in helping you cope during labour.  Our midwives have developed a series of how to videos that demonstrate simple techniques for self-massage and massage-by-a-partner which include foot, leg, hands, back and shoulders and sacral pressure massage - all of which soothe general aches and pains during pregnancy and in the early stages of labour.  Learn more here.

Using massage, especially during early labour, can have positive effects. Relaxation of both the body and mind can help promote the release of endorphins which are natural pain-relieving hormones.

Backache is common during pregnancy, especially in the 3rd trimester and labour, with many women feeling aches, pains or pressure around the lower back area. This area is called the sacrum and is part of the pelvis.

Using pressure (aka sacral pressure) can help relieve tensions in this area. Your partner can use the flat of their hand, fist, or the textured top of our massaging stick to apply the preferred amount of pressure to this area. We recommend that you lean against a wall or raised surface and when your partner applies the pressure, then push your back out firmly against this. This method can be very effective at relieving backache, especially during labour contractions.

This pregnancy massaging stick, made with a natural blend of shea and cocoa butters and sweet almond and coconut oil, combined with essential oils of frankincense, geranium, and bergamot, known for their calming and grounding properties.

The massaging stick is easy to apply, no-mess, and melts into a nourishing balm on your skin. Our Marvellous Massaging Stick multi-tasks as a no mess way to apply the balm and, asa massager itself, making self-massage super easy and helping you to apply gentle pressure.
