Do you feel heavy, back or pelvic pain?
Are you nauseous, exhausted and experiencing morning sickness?
Are you having trouble sleeping while pregnant?
Do you want to prepare your body for an easier birth?
Every organ in your body is changing and adapting itself in order to provide all of your baby’s needs as it grows and develops. Be open to receiving the physical and emotional support you need while your baby grows and your body changes.
Who can the treatment help?
I have lots of advanced training and experience with supporting many women before, during and after pregnancy.
The treatment is helpful for women with a wide range of pregnancy related issues including:
- Morning sickness and nausea
- Exhaustion and a heavy feeling
- Back pain
- Pelvic pain including SPD
- Fluid retention
- High risk pregnancy stress
- Breech presentation
- Postpartum blues
- Caesarean birth recovery
Physical support while you’re pregnant
I tailor my treatments especially for you combining the Sobada techniques of Maya Abdominal Massage and reflexology specifically for pregnant women.
The treatment reduces lower back pain and the heaviness of your growing belly and helps prepare your body for a faster and easier birth.
The womb and back massage helps to strengthen the uterus and all the ligaments supporting it and supports all the changes happening in your body including encouraging your baby to be in the optimal position as your due date approaches.
I incorporate hand and foot reflexology to help relieve symptoms like excess fluid, varicose veins, constipation, heartburn, headaches, tiredness and nausea.
Emotional support while you’re pregnant
Growing a new person can bring up many emotions – joy, fear, excitement, worry and confusion.
My treatment room is a safe place to share your emotions and receive practical tools to cope with them in a positive way.
Treatment with me will help you feel more calm and confident, more optimistic and prepared for the changes that occur during pregnancy, birth and beyond.
I help women with first trimester concerns: fear of miscarriage, over concern with the safety of the baby, fears of being a mother and/or coping with another child using Bach Flowers, visualisation and EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) Tapping.
I believe that when you feel calm, optimistic and able to cope during pregnancy, it sets you up for a better experience of birth and motherhood.
I’m a holistic therapist and I am here to help you!
I love helping women to overcome their fertility challenges and other issues related to your cycles, pregnancy, periods and/or anxiety.
I treat women with abdominal and womb massage techniques known as Sobada (formally the Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Massage) and reflexology.
I’m also an Advanced EFT Tapping practitioner and I work with women in particular issues around anxiety, depression, stress levels.
I teach Fertility Awareness to help women better know their bodies and improve their chances of conceiving or prevent pregnancy naturally.
I live in Modi’in, Israel and that’s where I spend my days helping women during their fertile years, pregnancy, menopause and other hormonal conditions. Bodywork sessions (massage and reflexology take place in my clinic in Modi’in but EFT Tapping sessions and Fertility Awareness education can take place online or in person).

I did a series of treatments with Annette during pregnancy and close to my due date. Annette is amazing! This treatment is not like any treatment or touch I have ever experienced. It’s an energetic treatment, Annette’s touch contains her heart and soul and it’s felt strongly.
The treatment is full of sensitivity, in choosing the oils that are suitable for me and especially for me and especially for my needs, everything is carefully and emotionally. Annette listened to my personal story, gives tips, contributes from her extensive knowledge and gives an amazing feeling and encourages a deep connection of the body and soul. I strongly recommend treatments at Annette's to every woman. It's an amazing energetic experience!
Update: I gave birth on Sunday afternoon. We’re home now and everything is great thank you. It was a very good birth, long - 12 hours, but the labour kept going the whole time and I was patient that my amazing body was capable and that the contractions would continue gradually and the birth was amazing.

I was having a difficult pregnancy with my twins and I came to Annette for reflexology. She helped me cope with all the changes in my body. I looked forward to her treatments every week. I wouldn’t have survived my twin pregnancy without Annette’s healing hands. Naomi, Modi’in
I thoroughly enjoyed my prenatal massage with Annette. Not only did it provide me with a much needed opportunity for relaxation, but it helped improve my sore and aching body as well. She was gentle and very aware of how to approach a prenatal body, and I felt quite comfortable in her care. Annette’s treatment definitely enhanced both my physical and mental well-being! K.K., Modi’in
Coming for a treatment ( Sobada, abdominal massage and reflexology for pregnancy) with Annette was the perfect thing to do before I gave birth. To stop and listen to my body and give it exactly what it needs so it will have the strength to do what it knows to do best. I highly recommend Annette at all stages of pregnancy and in particular the last month. I can’t wait to come back after the birth.
I would highly recommend Annette for reflexology treatments. I have been to many different people and find hers superior by far. The first time I went was for pleasure and to release some stress from everyday life. I continued to go through my last pregnancy. It helped relieve a lot of the pressure on my feet and keep me relaxed. The treatment room is clean and comfortable. I look forward to each session and am never disappointed.
I came to Annette’s clinic to help get my body and mind ready for my son’s upcoming birth. In her treatment room, I found such caring and competent hands, a relaxing and serene environment and pure healthy pampering. I felt so ready for the birth of my son and had more confidence and less anxiety that everything would go smoothly. Thank you so much, Annette!
