My name is Sharon Ballard and I have trained in many styles of massage over the past 20 years, for the past 8 years I have been specializing in massage techniques specifically for pain relief.

I have now completed further training with the exclusive Jing Institute of Advanced Massage Training, and have qualified to give an amazing side-lying massage for mums to be, which eases aches and pains and can helps towards resolving the common problems which may be associated with the second and third trimester of pregnancy. It is a beautiful massage, which is a stand alone treatment for relaxation and creates a restful space to connect with your baby. The massage itself is for 1 hour and the time booked out for you is 1 ½ hours so that there is no need for you to feel rushed. The cost of the massage is £45. Additional massage time may be booked for an increased charge if desired.

My therapy room is situated in a beautiful and peaceful rural location at New Close Farm, London Road, Hassocks, BN6 9ND.

Massage for new mums is an ideal way to help restore you physically, mentally and spiritually after the birth of your beautiful new baby. The post-pregnancy massage nurtures and nourishes the new mum. It promotes rapid healing and helps to improve your sleep, whilst helping your body to tone and regain its strength.

Your baby can be part of this massage, creating a wonderful environment for you to bond, whilst you both relax and catch some well deserved pamper time.


Baby massage is an amazing set of skills that you can acquire on my baby massage course. Touch is the newborn’s first language, and prime means of interaction, which plays a unique role in the early bonding with mum and dad. It helps to build confidence and trust. Massage is also of help to new dads, bringing them in touch with their babies and promoting confidence in the handling of their baby.
