Where to find a masseuse?

By Jim Jones - 16 December 2008 17

My missus is very pregnant at the moment, and loves (actually, demands) constant massages. I’m getting bored of doing this all the time, and I’d like to line her up some time with a ‘professional’ masseuse  as a treat.

Attempts to organise this in the past have been unsuccessful: About a year ago, I bought massage vouchers from a individual masseusse running as a small business, who then proceeded to claim she was too busy to take any bookings in the next 3 months , cancelled the first two bookings made after this time, and  ended up giving a dud massage anyway.

Can anyone recommend good massage businesses/masseuses? Anyone that specialises in pregnant massages? (None of the ‘naughty’ massage parlors please … although I’m always keen to hear stories I suppose).

Northern northside [read: Gunghalin], Chinese Massage inthe main street. At least if you are pregnant the wind blowing down that well-designed piece of @#$%^ will not blow you over. Shat, I diversified quick there….

Yes. There’s a great massage therapist in Florey – across from the shops. It’s called Body Kneads. They specialise in remedial massage and in particular for pregnant women (although that’s hardly a remedy I suppose!). They are in the Yellow and White pages.

Another vote for Bodykneads. They’ve helped this battered about old body get rid of the daily pain of old injuries. Going there for another session tomorrow.

BTW Jim, do you really believe that outsourcing this service will get you off the hook?

Ho ho ho!

I like Massage for Health at Ainslie Shops. They do pregnancy massage. I had a post-pregnancy massage there and the masseuse gave some good tips on reducing neck & shoulder strain while I was spending ten hours a day feeding a baby. Have given gift vouchers from there before, they’re always appreciated.

Vic Soloman done the Olympic team but I use Anthony or Tony for short. He is fantastic… 6280 9054

There’s a Thai place that does a variety of massages, including Thai foot massage as well as Swedish etc. Not sure about pregnant women’s requirements. I think it’s called “Foot & Thai”, and it’s at Weedon Close Belconnen (just down the hill from The Pot). Quite reasonable rates.

Mrs Mrshmellow swears by the Canberra Day Spa over near the ACTEW building in town.
They have a pregnancy specialist masseuse and do gift vouchers
