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.
"As my waters broke the day I was due to have a pre-natal massage, I booked a postnatal massage two weeks after an emergency c section. I was very sore and the massage did me wonders of good! Not just the physical wellbeing I received, but the psychological benefit of having an hour of me time! Lorena is wonderful, as well as being fantastic professionally, she is so warm and kind hearted and it felt like having a friend around. I can't recommend her highly enough!"
"I had my first pregnancy massage with Lorena yesterday. At 39 weeks and 4 days I absolutely loved being able to lie on my tummy and completely relax her capable hands. Felt amazing during and post massage and have recommended to all my NCT girls! If you've not booked with Lorena before - do it immediately. You won't regret it!"
"Huge recomendation for Lorena. I had a lovely massage this morning, thank you so much. I'm 39 weeks and have been struggling the last couple of nights with this heat. The massage was wonderful, my shoulders feel amazing and I'm lovely and relaxed."
"I had a pregnancy massage with Lorena on 28 May at 36 weeks. Its was very relaxing and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Lorena is very passionate about what she does and offers a wealth of knowledge based on her midwifery experience. I highly recommend booking in with Lorena!"
"I had a very relaxing massage by Lorena as well as lots of advice which was very handy to me being a first time mummy. Thank you Lorena! :)"
"I had a wonderful first massage with Lorena this week. I had a voucher which I'd forgotten to use until now (my baby is already 7 months!) but I'm glad I waited as Lorena worked her magic on 7 months' worth of breastfeeding, broken sleep, carrying a sturdy baby boy around and everything that had gone before in terms of pregnancy posture and a desk job! Lorena concentrated on the problem areas and I have really felt the benefits in the couple of days since, but the massage was also lovely and relaxing! It was great having Lorena come to our house to do the massage, she has a very warm nature and puts you at ease straight away and I really enjoyed chatting to her. Lorena - I'm already looking forward to my next massage!"
"Fabulous experience! Lorena made me feel so relaxed. Would highly recommend!"
"Had my first pregnancy massage yesterday with Lorena, and enjoyed it so much. Lorena was very professional, put me an ease and made sure I was comfortable throughout. I have been suffering with lots of aches and pains, so Lorena concentrated on my problem areas. It was just so lovely to completely relax and not worry about getting dressed and driving home from a salon. I will definitely be booking my appointments for the rest of my pregnancy!"
"I would highly recommend Lorena for pregnancy massage - she's very knowledgeable and kind, and her massages help with easing my back pain during pregnancy a lot. Lovely to be able to have the massages at home too, and the 'lying on your front device' is great."
"Wonderful massage. Lorena completely understands the needs of a pregnant woman. I felt totally at ease and relaxed the whole time. I'll be booking several more. What a treat!"
"I had the most amazing massage, we had just moved house and my back and shoulders were killing me. The pain just melted away."
"Absolutely wonderful relaxing massage followed by a great sense of well being thank you Lorena would thoroughly thoroughly recommend"
"I had a pregnancy massage with Lorena last night and can highly recommend to other mummies to be. I'm a masage therapist myself and thought Lorena was great- really friendly, knowledgeable and puts you completely at ease. The treatment was very relaxing and I slept really well afterwards too. Thank you Lorena. Looking forward to the next one already!"
"The most relaxing massage ever and so needed after almost 40 weeks of nausea and SPD. Lorena came or my house at my convenience and totally looked after me and put me at ease. And I went into labour a few days early."
"Just had the most amazing pregnancy massage. Thank you Lorena �. Feeling so lovely and relaxed. All those pregnancy tensions have gone. Extremely comfortable being able to lay on my front supported by the most amazing cushion for bump to be in. Wish i had known about this earlier in pregnancy. I look forward to my post natal massage in a few weeks"
"Lovely pregnancy massage from Lorena following a recommendation on a mums forum. Lorena made me feel very relaxed and comfortable and made me forget all my stresses and aches and pains. Will deffo be booking again . Highly recommended"
"Amazing massage, really relaxing and I'd recommend it to all mums to be!"
"Lorena came home last Friday and the massage was just delightful!!! I was on my 33 week and she was not only very professional, but also warm, caring and friendly. Before the massage, she explained to me everything I needed to know about it and also some other questions about my pregnancy. The massage was amazing and definitely helped with my sore back and my sleep (I've been sleeping much better the last 3 nights!) I am looking forward to the labour tuition massage, which my husband and I also booked so he can help during labour. I wish I could have this massage everyday of my pregnancy! Thank you Lorena!"
"I had a wonderfully relaxing massage with Lorena. She instantly makes you feel relaxed and at ease. With all her wonderful midwifery experience she can advise on things that will help during labour as well as giving reassuring advice. Brilliant"
"Had a lovely massage at 38 weeks pregnant and then a few days after my little girl arrived! Amazing to be able to lay on your front on the special pregnancy massage pillow! Such a lovely treat! Both really helped relieve those aches and pains! Thanks very much xxx"
"Had my first pregnancy massage with Lorena last night and it was excellent! I had the best sleep I've had in ages and no bad back today! Would definitely recommend. Thanks very much Lorena! X"
"Just had an amazing massage from Lorena. Currently 36+6 with lots of pain and after the massage I feel lighter and so relaxed. Lorena was amazing for advising me on pregnancy and general issues around care whilst pregnant, and it was nice to have a natter! Will definitely be booking again once baby is here! I can't recommend enough! Thank you so much! X"
"This week, Lorena came to my house and I had a wonderful pregnancy massage. Lorena was professional, warm and friendly, and with her midwifery experience, she put me at ease straight away, demonstrating her knowledge and experience. The massage was really really lovely, and in a completely different league compared to a 'normal beauty massage'. It helped to soothe my lower back pain and also really relaxed my mind and body. I got in bed and fell asleep straight after Lorena left! Blissful!"
"Just had the best massage with Lorena. Can't recommend her enough, feeling very relaxed and can't wait for my next one! Thanks again xx"
