About Lorena Ranson
Lorena Ranson is a trained nurse and was a practising midwife from 1989 – 2009. During her studies at Greenwich University, she was so impressed by research on the benefits of therapeutic massage that she went on to specialise in this field.
Lorena qualified in Holistic (Swedish) Massage, with distinction from the Clare Maxwell-Hudson School of Massage, in 2004, and has since trained in Indian head massage, onsite massage and facial massage. Lorena has also trained in deep tissue massage and techniques to relieve back and pelvic pain.
Since qualifying Lorena has worked part-time in two busy London GP practices, at Neals yard Bromley, and in the Hayes beauty spot in Hayes providing massage for patients of all ages, with varying health problems.
Lorena specialises in motherhood massage, and teaches birth partners supportive massage techniques for labour. However, her service is not exclusive to ante and postnatal women
She runs a busy private practice providing holistic massage for clients individually and at events such as conferences, The London Marathon and The Live Earth Concert.
"Lovely massage, felt very relaxed and the special pillow was amazing, felt so good to lie on my front after all these months whilst pregnant. I slept well the night of the massage �"
"Lorena was highly recommended by a friend plus I won her massage in a raffle prize. It was such a great experience at the comfort of my own home. Very professional she brings her bed and the best thing was she bought a pregnancy pillow which meant I would lie on my front which was a true blessing. Completely felt relaxed. I cannot wait to have her come back. Wish I would have found her earlier on."
"I had my first pregnancy massage with Lorena on Tues and I can highly recommend. So relaxing, Lorena made me feel at ease from the moment I arrived - will definitely be back!"
"I was lucky enough to be recommended Lorena for at home massage when I was pregnant and was super impressed! She brings a special pregnancy cushion home which meant I could lie on my front after months ! I felt extremely relaxed post massage and booked with Lorena weekly as a treat for myself. I have now had my baby and have post natal massages with Lorena. With breastfeeding I have experienced a lot of backache and Lorena’s massages have really helped! I have had many massages before and have to say Lorena’s are the best !!! She is also very knowledgable about babies and labour and given me some great tips ! I couldn’t recommend her enough !"
"A massage from Lorena is a MUST postnatal treat - and in the comfort of your own home"
"I had an antenatal massage with Lorena today and I’m super pleased with the service received. I’m having work done in the house and Lorena was extremely accommodating, carrying the massage couch upstairs so I could relax as much as possible. The massage itself was perfect, exactly what I needed, not only to relax but also to get rid of those pregnancy aches. It’s clear that Lorena is very knowledgeable and passionate about what she does, she is very friendly and made me feel very comfortable. I’m nearly 40 weeks so I’m already looking forward to book my postnatal massage. Thank you Lorena!"
"Really relaxing. Just what I needed at the end of my pregnancy. Have a gift voucher for another massage and looking forward to booking in a session as a postpartum treat."
"I received a gift voucher for a pregnancy massage with Lorena and honestly it was such an amazing gift, Lorena was great, very professional, friendly and knowledgeable. With her years of experience dealing with pregnant women she knew exactly how much pressure to apply and massaged all the right places. She was also able to provide useful advice throughout which was great value add. Finally the pregnant pillow is a GOD SEND, I totally miss sleeping on my front so this pilow with a cut out hole for your bump was incredible. Thank you Lorena, will definitely use you again post pregnancy 😊"
"I can’t recommend motherhood massage enough. Lorena put myself and my husband at ease whilst demonstrating massage techniques for labour. We both feel prepared for the labour now, thank you Lorena!"
"I thoroughly enjoyed Lorena's treatments during my pregnancy. As an experienced former midwife and skilled massage therapist, I felt very safe in her hands. The treatments were tailored to any specific issue I had and they were always fabulous, leaving me feeling relaxed and recharged. I would recommend Lorena to any mum-to-be."
"I had a massage 2 weeks ago with Lorena and I highly recommend her. She is very professional and knows what she is doing. I was 28 weeks pregnant on the day and the massage was very relaxing and helped me with lower back pain."
"This was so so relaxing and she gave great advice re stretches I could try. Will definitely be booking again! Highly recommend."
"I’ve been seeing Lorena for around a year now and can honestly say she really gives the best massages! She was brilliant when I was pregnant, catering for every ache and pain, listening to my concerns and offering expert advice having been a midwife herself. I now see her frequently after having my daughter, coming to my house in the evenings to suit my routine and it is pure bliss. Her massages are the perfect combination of getting rid of the knots and tight points you get through motherhood but also so so relaxing!! � 5* ++++++"
"Really relaxing and much needed massage - thanks very much"
"Lorena was recommended to me by a friend and I was so glad to have my pregnancy massage at home with her. She instantly made me feel comfortable and spent time with me, both before and after the massage to understand my individual wants and needs. Lorena made me feel relaxed and is very easy going. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her to others. Thanks for a lovely experience!"
"Fantastic massage from Lorena today, both baby and I loved it and it was soo needed! Can't wait to get booked in again. Would absolutely recommend. Thanks Lorena!"
"I had a pregnancy massage this week and it was lovely and relaxing and I slept like a baby that night!! Just nice to lay on your front after months of avoiding it!"
"I don't know why I haven't asked for Lorena to come around before, I feel so much better with my post labour massage. Lorena is amazing and so is her fairy hands!"
"AMAZING AMAZING AMAZING!!!! Highly recommend. The best pregnancy massage I’ve had.. the pillow with the hole is fab and it was so nice being on my front rather than an awkward side massage. Lorena is fab and really took the time to understand my situation and gave me some great tips!"
"I had a post natal massage in my home. It was a fantastic and thorough massage which got rid of lots of tension in my back, neck and arms. Lorena had a warm manner, made sure I was relaxed and was given brilliant advice on how to prevent future neck/back tension. The massage must have worked as had a nap on the sofa straight after! Thanks Lorena x"
"I had my massage on 30/11 and I booked my next 2 sessions with Lorena straight away. Lorena is a very professional, experienced and knowledgable midwife - she spent time to understand all my medical history (type1 diabetic), sore areas around my body, answer all my pregnancy questions and walk me through the use of massage product and the procedure, which makes me feel I’m in a good hand without a doubt. Not to mention, her amazing massage skill and professional equipments which really mind-blowing - as i love massage and I had tried a number of pregnancy massages, I got to say Lorena is definitely on the top of the list. Her amazing Massage skill along with her midwife qualification is just like icing on a cake! Highly recommended to any expectant mother or mother, I’m sure you will love Lorena as much as I do :-)"
"I didn't realise how desperately I needed a massage until Lorena came and saw me! I am currently pregnant and suffering with PGP, which I had in my previous pregnancy too. Lorena is so knowledgeable about PGP, and being a qualified midwife with years of experience, she was great to talk to and get advice from. She was very professional from start to finish, took all medical history and gave advice regarding PGP and all my aches. It was also nice to be able to be seen in my own home, I feel like I'm always rushing around so it was relaxing having someone come to me! It's the morning after and I feel like a different person, all back and leg ache is gone - I didn't realise how bad it had got until I've woken up this morning and for the first time in months not felt like creaking my bones out of my bed 😂 I have already rebooked for my next massage and passed on Lorena's number to another pregnant friend. I strongly recommend that if you are suffering in pregnancy with aches, pains and creaky bones that you see Lorena!"
"I had a post partem massage last week and was delighted. Lorena is brilliant and really knows her stuff on pregnancy/post partem."
"I have SPD and met Lorena today for the first time and I must say how welcoming and friendly she is! She really made me feel at ease and not silly as some people do when you complain about pregnancy aches & pains. I had a great massage and it helped release all the tension in my neck and lower back. Very good bonus that she is an ex-midwife as she has so much experience and has a lot of much needed information :) I also loved that she talked me through everything she was doing, I will definelty be booking another appointment!"
"Feeling amazing after my pregnancy massage today... I'm 38 weeks pregnant and it was just what I needed � Thank you Lorena xx"
