Olla ladies, today I would like to share my experience having prenatal massage at Villa Manja. Will be sharing of what is pregnancy massage is all about, the benefit as well as our yee sang session after the spa!

First and foremost pregnancy massage, also known as pre-natal massage, promotes relaxation, soothes nerves, and relieves strained back and leg muscles in expectant mothers. Pregnancy massage is especially benefical in the second and third trimesters, when the extra weight in your belly puts a strain on your back. Imagine having a human being moving around kicking in your tummy 24 hours a day. Okay fine, it is cute but honestly it does give your some back pain. (okay now go and hug your mum and thank her for carrying you for 9 months)

Before you get a pregnancy massage, make sure the therapist has been specially trained so there is no risk of miscarriage. At Villa Manja, I have no doubt that they have special well trained and highly experience therapist. Thanks to Tammy for introducing me to Villa Manja. This is my third time going to Villa Manja but it is my first time trying out their prenatal and scrub treatment.

The first time I went, I tried their relaxing massage and the second time I went is for the KInohimitsu Party that we had last year with The Butterfly Projects. It was a fun time hosting the event with Tammy! Hahaha

Okay back to topic, a pregnancy massage differs from traditional massage in a few different ways. First, the massage therapist will take extra care to make sure your body gets the cushioning and support it needs.When you’re lying on your back, there will be pillows underneath your knees and shoulders. If you’re far along in your pregnancy, you might be positioned in a semi-reclining position, where you’re looking at the wall instead of the ceiling.

Some pregnancy massage also uses special bolsters with a deep cutout in the center so you can lie face-down comfortably. You can also have your back massaged during pregnancy by lying on your side, with pillows under your head and between your legs. A pregnancy massage should be very soothing and relaxing in style.

The benefits of Pregnancy Massage is that it provide relaxation by relieving stress on joints. It eases neck and back pain, helps you to keep good posture and relaxes and provides flexibility to birthing muscles. Pregnancy massage aids the circulatory and lymphatic systems, which keeps blood flowing to both the mother and the baby. It stimulates different glands in the body, which help to stabilize hormone levels, and relieves nervous tension throughout the body. And the nurturing touch during pregnancy massage promotes relaxation and provides emotional support.

As for my experience at Villa Manja, gosh I LOVE IT. Since I took the scrub treatment as well, Marianne the owner is super kind to prepare a chocolate plus coconut scrubs for me. OMG!! Smells so heavenly. Still thinking about the yummy scrubs while typing this post. I was assigned to same room as Cammie since she also took the scrubs treatment. Her scrub is the coffee scrub and yes it smells divine as well. Do you know that coffee is an awesome antioxidant? Well, I can’t go for coffee scrubs since I am pregnant but I will come back to try it out once I gave birth. Muhahahahahaha (evil laugh)

After the scrub session, I went to shower and then prepare for my prenatal massage session. My stress and pain just melt away. Especially at my foot area. Yes, I have swollen foot now as my body is preparing me for more weight since I am currently 6 months pregnant. Highly recommend for you to try out prenatal massage at Villa Manja if you are expecting mum.

To top the awesomeness, Marianne is super kind she even cook nasi lemak for us! Did I mention she even cooked chicken rendang? Sayang you banyak la macam ni. We spent time chit chatting then makan then chit chat again. Marianne also let us taste her homemade ladu.. I am like gosh.. this woman can cook!

Since CNY is approaching, Tammy, Wing, Cammie, Ayna, Caro, Marianne and me had yee sang tossing session. We bought the per-packed Yee Sang from Jusco and tammy bring the wooden chopstick then let the tossing begin!

Due to excitement, we totally forgotten to snap a group picture adoi… Anyway, it was a truly relaxing and fun session. As for the prenatal massage, I would definitely come back for more and I am also advised to come 2 weeks before delivery to ease the delivery process.


Owh ya, Cammie enjoyed coffee scrubs and relaxing massage Tammy, Ayna and Caro had their relaxing massage and hot stone massage on top of it. Want to know how’s their experience? Ask them I don’t know hahaha but I bet it would be as awesome as mine!
