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?
How can you enjoy your pregnancy pain free and more relaxed?
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.
I offer the Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Therapy, a relaxing and therapeutic massage from the Maya tribe especially 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 belly and back massage helps to strengthens 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.
In addition, the treatment helps relax tension in your abdomen, release adhesions and return organs to their optimum position.
I incorporate hand and foot reflexology to help relieve symptoms like excess fluid, varicose veins, constipation, heartburn, headaches, tiredness and nausea.
Every organ in your body is changing and adapting itself in order to provide all of your baby’s needs at it grows and develops. Be open to receiving support you need while your baby grows and your body changes.
What’s the difference between the Arvigo techniques for pregnancy and regular pregnancy massage?
As someone who has been massaging pregnant women for 15+ years I find the Arvigo massage techniques a lot more effective and powerful than regular pregnancy massage. Arvigo techniques for pregnancy support your body to strengthen and repair the ligaments supporting your growing uterus during pregnancy and encourage your uterus to be in the optimal position before birth which increases your chances of an enjoyable pregnancy and a shorter and easier labour.
Here’s what others have to say about my treatments during pregnancy:
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 went to Annette after several unsuccessful fertility treatments. Annette helped me relax and my body to become more balanced and as a result, I got pregnant naturally. I continued to go to Annette for treatment during the pregnancy and she helped me with nausea and even helped my baby turn from a breech position to head down at the end of the pregnancy
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!
. . Hi Annette, I wanted to write and tell you that I feel really great. Since Sunday, I feel so much better physically and emotionally. No more stomach pain and a lot less nausea and vomiting. Thank you so much. I want to book another . treatment for next week. T.D, Tel Aviv
Back pain during pregnancy
Annette’s treatments were the solution to my endless back pain and constant pressure during my third pregnancy. Annette is so supportive and calming which helped me feel calm and made sure I felt comfortable. I felt a significant improvement after treatment, especially the different pain and pressure I was feeling. I left each treatment feeling calm, refreshed and relaxed. I highly recommend Annette for anyone looking for massage and reflexology during pregnancy.
I have had SPD (Symphysis pubis dysfunction) in all 4 pregnancies Third I couldn’t move without wanting to cry from 14 weeks on. But during the fourth, I went straight to Annette when the SPD just started and I could go running till the Dr said I needed to stop. Could keep up with my 3 very active kids and had all in a great pregnancy with the rare few hours of SPD pain. Annette worked wonders for me. Wish I had met her before the previous pregnancies.E.O, Modi’in
I experienced a very emotionally complicated pregnancy. I came to Annette for treatment and she helped me in many ways to cope with the difficulties and fears. Annette’s touch is amazing, deep in just the right way and very releasing. I highly recommend.

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).
