'I found Suzanna after having a number of miscarriages and an ectopic pregnancy, and I began womb massages with her. She has been amazing. The treatments and Suzanna's support and advice have got me through such a hard time to a place where I loved my body again and felt positive about continuing to try for a baby. With my last pregnancy I felt so much calmer and happier, and I'm now 6 months pregnant with a little girl! I've been having pregnancy massages with Suzanna which is such a treat. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Suzanna , I am so thankful to her and sing her praises whenever I can! ' Georgina - Lytham
'I initially approached Suzanna as I'm a woman in my 40's and really wanted to become pregnant again naturally, after having my first child at 40. I had tried acupuncture the previous year and was also receiving reflexology treatment. The Fertility Massage treatment was so very relaxing and chatting to Suzanna was easy. She gave me many tips and recommended various books and generally helped me to have a more positive outlook on becoming pregnant rather than seeing my age as a barrier as to why I wasn't pregnant. I really looked forward to our sessions. I cannot recommend Suzanna highly enough. Even after finding out that I was blessed and expecting a baby and therefore did not require the Fertility Massage any longer, she still continued to stay in contact and offer support. Thank you Suzanna!' Louise - Manchester
'I contacted Suzanna after 3 unsuccessful IVF Cycles & 6 IUI Cycles. We were getting positive results but the pregnancies were short lived. It was very frustrating and took a while for us to get some sort of an explanation.
I explained our situation to Suzanna and asked if there was anything her services could do to assist with our next cycle. She was very friendly & calm in her approach. She explained how her treatments could help with getting my body ready for my next cycle. I agreed to take her services and was constantly telling my husband how relaxed I felt. I am very pleased to say that after using her services, for the first time ever, I experienced a smooth & pain free, egg collection & embryo transfer and am now pregnant. It's early days yet, however, I feel her services played a part in getting us to this stage. I would highly recommend anyone who is in our situation to get in touch with Suzanna & I wish you all good luck.' Rose - Preston
'It was after 6+ years of 'unexplained' infertility and two failed IVF's that I found Suzanna's website. I knew as soon as I met Suzanna and the session began that I had made the right decision. It was time to put gruelling and invasive treatment that clearly wasn't working for me aside. I was in need of something that felt positive and relaxing, yet still powerful.
I approached everything positively and with an open mind, including the yoni steaming and positive affirmations. Long story short, I conceived naturally in the month following my first session! Sadly, ending in miscarriage, this pregnancy was not to be. However, a few weeks passed and I again came back for my second treatment. I found it to be such a huge part of my healing process physically, emotionally and spiritually. As before, and again in the following month, I conceived naturally. I now write this with my four month old daughter in my arms: a precious gift that just over a year ago seemed such an impossibility.' Elizabeth - Lancashire
'I came across Suzanna through a google search. I'm so glad I did. I've never really been a great person for relaxing and since starting my own business I've been worse along with other things going on in life.
I've never been a believer in fully relaxing with a massage etc, but after my first session with Suzanna WOW I've changed so many things in my life in just such a short space of time!
After feeling the difference in my body and mind, I really took on board the advice Suzanna gave me. I feel so much more at peace and chilled out about things, it's unreal!
I can't thank Suzanna enough. She is such a calming and lovely person, I feel like I have always known her because she makes you feel that comfortable and at ease..
So, if anyone is thinking about booking just do it, honestly, I feel brilliant.
My husband and all of my family have noticed a huge difference in me :) After just two sessions I was pregnant!'
Terri - Preston
'I have been buying the steaming herbs from Suzanna's web shop since last November and have been steaming regularly. The herbs are good quality and her website has good instructions on how to use them. I can fully attest steaming has improved my menstrual health, helped regulate my natural periods without any issues after ten years of taking the pill. Any questions you may have Suzanna gets back to you and is there to help.' Hannah - Plymouth
'Suzanna has been treating me with fertility massage for the last 18 months on a monthly basis. I can honestly say she is one of the most understanding and caring people I have come across on this journey. She has helped me with physical and emotional stresses of dealing with PCOS and infertility and I am proud to say that she has helped me to overcome many issues and to get to where I am today with a positive pregnancy result.'
M. A - Nelson
'After 2 years of TTC, I wanted to try something new. I researched fertility massage and came across Suzanna. From the first phone conversation, Suzanna was lovely and made me feel comfortable to talk to her.
I had my first session and really enjoyed it. I came out feeling relaxed and happy, something I hadn't felt in a long time!
I booked my second session but I didn't actually need it! I was pregnant after the first session!
I am so thankful to Suzanna for making my dreams come true. I'm looking forward to pregnancy massage with Suzanna.'
Laura - Preston
' I loved my sessions with Suzanna!! I always looked forward to them and really noticed a positive difference regarding regulation of my cycles and just generally feeling more relaxed and positive. Suzanna's natural enthusiasm, warmth and advice are amazing. I am now 4 months pregnant and would encourage anyone to see her.' Mairi Rose - Bolton
' I had been trying to conceive my second child for sometime without any success. I decided I needed to do something about it & I contacted Suzanna for Fertility Massage. Unbeknown to me, I was holding onto emotional baggage and was stressing about not being able to conceive. After two sessions with the wonderful Suzanna, I became pregnant! I am so so grateful to you Suzanna for all you have done. You helped me see past my hurdles, believe in myself, my body and helped me achieve my dreams. You truly are a miracle worker & I'll be seeing you soon for Pregnancy Massage.' Anita - Widnes
'I began menstrual massage treatments with Suzanna after being diagnosed with endometriosis. Over the past six months Suzanna has helped me enormously with both the physical and the emotional aspects of my condition. Suzanna has an incredibly caring approach which makes it very easy to relax in her company- this was so important to me in dealing with my concerns surrounding my condition. From my very first appointment I have been able to share my health and emotional worries with Suzanna due to her warmth and her genuine interest in helping women with these conditions.
I would highly recommend menstrual massage treatments with Suzanna.'
Rachael - Lytham St Annes
'I cannot recommend Suzanna enough. From our initial phone conversation I realised just how knowledgeable and special Suzanna was. She instantly put me at ease, with her reassuring, calm and caring manner. I was really looking forward to my appointment with her. I had been told I had secondary infertility and was in the middle of my second IVF cycle. Suzanna massively helped me to release past trauma and emotional baggage and reconnect with my body.
I'm thrilled to say I am now pregnant and grateful to Suzanna for the part she has played in my journey. It is still early days, but with Suzanna's visualisations and positive affirmations I am able to be more positive about the future.
Thank you so much Suzanna!'
J P - Ashton under Lyne
'Suzanna was so friendly right from the start at my first enquiry. I was a bit apprehensive as I've had a few unsatisfying massages with other therapists previously. Suzanna was so welcoming and it was very quickly apparent how knowledgeable and passionate she is about all the types of women's massage. She is a highly skilled practitioner. The treatment was outstanding and the baby loved it- kicking away! I just wish I'd found her earlier so
I could have fit in more appointments before my baby arrived!'
-Grace - Hutton.
'My sessions with Suzanna were extremely relaxing and very pleasurable. Having had both Reiki and stomach massages, I feel my irregular, heavy and painful periods have improved. I would definitely recommend as Suzanna is very professional, friendly, warm and welcoming.'
'I'm so thankful to have had wonderful treatments from Suzanna. I've felt very relaxed and thoroughly enjoyed the experience of Reiki and also Womb Healing. I was amazed at how the Womb Healing experience was, I felt very re-assured, safe and looked after in all the treatments. Suzanna is very considerate and really takes time to help her clients.'
-LK - Preston.
"I had struggled with dreadful periods for a long time and the pain was waking me in the night. After searching for help I found Suzanna and after a few sessions the pain really stopped. I was also able to focus more on health and relaxation which I realised were a huge part of being able to conceive. I would highly recommend to anybody wanting to start a family and struggling to conceive. This is a great way to align body and mind to prepare you for a fantastic journey into motherhood. "
"I can confidently say that finding Suzanna in my pregnancy was a blessing. I was struggling with aches and pains in my pregnancy and was told I have SPD, all I was searching for was someone that could help me relax and soothe my body. Having tried different spa's across the North West, I can truly say that I was grateful for Suzanna.
I wasn't just treated like another customer and given the same generic body massage, instead she really listened to my needs and concentrated on areas of my body that were aching the most.
I felt comfortable the moment I met her and the whole experience was so relaxing. I went home feeling stress free and so calm. I revisited Suzanna a few days before my due date hoping to help things speed up. I'm pleased to say the next evening I went into labour :)
I would definitely recommend a massage during pregnancy with Suzanna, especially to help with aches and pains at the end. Looking forward to visiting her again now that I've had my baby so that she can help get me back that pre pregnancy feeling."

My Post-Natal Massage Experience
"I was blessed with twin girls who were born via c-section. I adored my two little angels but felt challenged by the way my stomach looked post pregnancy. I tried to embrace the movement of loving my scarred stomach and overhang, but I just felt sluggish and horrible. I literally felt like my organs were all over the place, my uterus out-of-order as I could not seem to hold my pee, despite doing those bloody kegel exercises (I dreaded coughing and sneezing! To all my mummies that don’t do jumping jacks or trampolining hehehe). I felt bad about myself and then guilty for feeling that way.
Instead of embracing my mummy tummy I just started to accept that I just had to live with it.
Then my coach had recommended a post-natal massage, it was a little alien to me. I didn’t know that such a therapy was available but I thought it was worth a try. So I got to work searching the net for a local therapist. There weren’t many practitioners where I lived but thankfully I found one that resonated with me.
I wasted no time contacted the therapist. Straight away she was reassuring, explaining what it was I was going to encounter, understanding my symptoms and letting me know I wasn’t the only one who had felt this way. Excited and relieved I went straight ahead and booked an appointment.
Well, I had my first post natal massage! It was amazing! I thought to myself, how do women not know about this???? It should definitely be in a post natal pack.
During the massage my stomach gurgled and contracted as though it was (gently) recreating labour contractions (I didn’t go into labour with my girls). It was magical! I longed to give birthed naturally and the only thought I had when experiencing this was, this longing was trapped in my body and was being fulfilled. I surrendered and allowed my body to do what it needed and trusted the gentle hands that put my organs back into place (it sounds funny but that is what it felt like) and the healing massage of my c-section scar. It was a beautiful experience that led me to book more sessions.
The question you probably want to know is did it work? What other affects did it have?
I can tell you straight away I noticed a difference in the way I felt, in fact I felt a little tipsy (which wasn’t too bad). My stomach also felt put back together and I no longer felt bloated and sluggish. Furthermore, my menstruation was lighter and was shorter, with very little cramping. Now that has got to be a bonus! Even the way I felt towards my mummy tummy had changed, I felt and do now love my tummy (which I didn’t expect from a massage!)
Finally the main reason I am writing this blog is to encourage ALL you beautiful mummies to experience post natal massage. It’s a wonderful nurturing gift to yourself and has lots of health benefits.
The lovely therapist I used was called Suzanna Burton- Natural-Holistic-Healing.co.uk
Now go and give your yummy tummy some love xxx"
"I am 29 weeks pregnant and had an amazing massage from Suzanna. I have never felt so relaxed in my life never mind pregnancy! Suzanna ensured I was comfortable and warm throughout the massage. I would definitely recommend her and I am re-booking"
- Chantelle - Fulwood, Preston
"Finding it very difficult to slow down and find time to relax at 33 weeks pregnant, I booked a pregnancy massage with Suzanna, Full body, face and head. It was amazing. It released so much tension in my lower back and shoulders. Looking forward to my next treatment"
- Laura T - Chorley
"I am 35 weeks pregnant and had a pregnancy massage with Suzanna who had been recommended to me by a recently pregnant friend. I felt so relaxed, I can't remember the last time I felt so calm and relaxed. I really felt the benefits straight away. I will be booking in another session ASAP!"
-Sam Chadwick – Preston
'With a history of painful, heavy periods, and taking the pill for three to four years from the age of 15, I have never had a “normal” or “healthy” menstrual cycle.
Before contacting Suzanna about her menstrual massage treatment, I hadn’t experienced a period for six months. During this time, I also suffered with constant mood swings, digestive issues and other abdominal and pelvic pains.
After just TWO TREATMENTS with Suzanna, I got my period back. This was a huge breakthrough for me.
Aside from the massage treatments, with her nutritional guidance and home care plan, I noticed a huge positive change in my body within only a couple of weeks. I now rarely feel bloated, I have more energy, I feel happier and more confident in my body, and I am experiencing healthier periods, with little to no cramping at all.
I am SO grateful for Suzanna and the wonderful work that she does.
If you are looking for help with any menstrual issues, I highly recommend this treatment. It really does work! And she is lovely, helpful, supportive and makes you feel completely at ease. '
Beth S, Preston
'I have been treated by Suzanna over the last couple of months with fertility massage following secondary infertility. It has been a truly wonderful experience and aside from her professional service, Suzanna is a very warm and understanding person. I always enjoy the massage as it is such a relaxing and spiritual experience. She very much makes you feel at ease. I feel that I have reconnected with my body and my cesarean scar from my first birth has gone from an angry, red mark to a calm, settled & beautiful momento of welcoming my daughter. I am truly grateful to Suzanna for making me feel a step closer to meeting my second child. Highly recommended.'
Mrs M, Wales
'Suzanna has been a great help when going through IVF. I have had fertility massages and noticed a big difference when going through the second cycle of IVF. Suzanna made me feel at ease and provided me with lots of advice as well as support.'
Thank you for being such an important part of our journey - so my baby and I could meet.
C McKenzie - Manchester
'During the course of my pregnancy I had the pleasure of having a massage by Suzanna. It was a very calm and relaxing experience and her kind personality made it all that more enjoyable. I have now given birth to a beautiful baby girl, and was in much need of a post-natal massage, Suzanna once again worked her magic, and so I would highly recommend Suzanna.'
