Self Care York

Nutrition & Complementary Therapies

There are a range of therapists below who have been recommended by members of the York Mumbler Group – all local parents. Treatments are a great way of looking after yourself which is so essential when you’re doing the important but exhausting job of parenting!

Providing all forms of reflexology, including fertility, maternity, hand and facial reflexology.

I also offer baby and toddler reflex workshops to show parents a routine to perform on their own child.

Other therapies available are indian head massage and natural facelift massage, all of these will be very beneficial to you.

“Maternity Reflexology with Renni is just bliss. It’s an hour or so of absolute relaxation and I always feel as if all my ailments have just disappeared. I LOVE it”.   (Steph)



Michaela Scott is a qualified practicing medical herbalist and member of the National Institute of Medical Herbalists (NIMH). Her 4 year BSc degree course covered training in general medicine as well as herbal medicine, supplemented by additional clinical training at the Universities of East London, Middlesex and Westminster and a Clinical Examination course at The British School of Osteopathy.

She is also a qualified massage therapist with 16 years experience and specialist training in pregnancy massage.

Michaela is a qualified birth doula (recognized member of Doula UK) who offers emotional and practical support to a woman (or couple) through pregnancy, childbirth and the early post-natal period.

Pregnancy massage treatments cost £40 for 1 hour and are tailored to your needs as a pregnant woman.  The massage takes place on a wide and comfortable massage couch, fixed at a lower level than usual, so that it is easier for you to get on and off.  You will lie on your side, with your head resting on a pillow, and then use as many pillows and cushions as necessary to support you and your bump and make you as comfortable as possible.  You will be covered by towels and only the parts of your body that are being massaged will be exposed.

Gift vouchers are available, as are loyalty discounts (such as pay for 5 massages and get the 6th one free)

When you are growing a whole new human you need some extra nurturing.

Acupuncture – Kexby Clinic

Acupuncture treatment is a wonderful way to maintain optimal health during your pregnancy as it is completely natural and is able to target all of the common complaints that can arise at different stages.

‘I suffered horrendously with sinusitis during pregnancy and the only thing I found to truly help was acupuncture. I can highly recommend Malcolm Lummas in Kexby x’

ERDH, May 18

‘Every time I’ve fallen off a horse and done myself serious damage Malcolm at the Kexby clinic sorts me. He does Chinese acupressure, acupuncture, traditional deep tissue massage, and cups. The cups are Amazing! What the Olympic athletes use. I can’t recommend him enough. Plus he works from home so no silly prices.’
