“Now that I’m pregnant again, I cannot wait to get my favourite pregnancy massage at Body Freedom Urban Day Spa in South Melbourne. They were recommended to me by a girlfriend after I was complaining last time I was pregnant about not having found a pregnancy massage that I liked. Most places require you to lie on your tummy when they massage you. While they provide a hole for your tummy to fit into it means all of the pressure is on your boobs- ouch!!! Hello, you need a hole cut out for each boob to fit into too because, I for one, cannot lie on them when I’m pregnant- too sore (but boy do I like how big they are! haha). The other thing I’m not a fan of, is lying flat on my back for a massage. It is not recommended by health professionals after a certain number of weeks (12 or 16 I think?) because the pressure of the baby on certain nerves and blood vessels is not ideal.

So what makes Body Freedom Urban Day Spa’s preggo massage so good? The masseurs are trained by a qualified midwife and practice the techniques by leading UK pregnancy massage therapist Suzanne Yates, so you are in the safest of hands. The thing I loved the most was that you are treated on a futon, lying on your side and also over a fit ball. It is the most relaxing, therapeutic massage I have ever had and in the final couple of months of my pregnancy with Oscar, I booked in for one every single week. I was addicted. They knew exactly what was happening in my body, where Oscar was sitting and where I needed the most work- she was brilliant!

I highly, highly recommend all the preggy bellies out there pay this place a visit.

“The AGE (Newspaper): Body and Soul” : Jen Kelly

It’s easy to think you’ve walked into the wrong place when you step into the Body Freedom Urban Spa Retreat in historic South Melbourne. The sterility, corporate sameness and distant professionalism of many day spas are nowhere to be seen.

Set in a refurbished three-storey 1850s hosiery mill, Body Freedom is instead warm and cosy, with open fires, wooden floorboards and high ceilings retaining the charm of the past. Co-owner Jacqueline Johnston explains, in far more detail than at most other spas, the delicious full-body treatment, The Melt, that I’m to have.

For two hours I don’t move from the table as I’m spoiled in silence with body brushing, then a massage, facial, head and scalp treatment; and exfoliation, mud mask and mint butter massage for my feet. It’s no surprise when Jacqueline tells me 95 per cent of clients nod off during The Melt, some snoring loudly. I stave off the zzz’s. Who wants to miss a moment of this bliss?

TimeOut Melbourne

Body Freedom is exactly what its name suggests; freeing the knots from your muscles and the strains from your daily lives to leave you in a state of complete tranquillity. You can choose one of their many massages which will leave you completely satisfied however, if you’re willing to splurge a little we would recommend one of their packages, The Melt ($210). This full-body experience will dissolve all of your worries from head to toe.
