physio / massage needed (pregnancy related)

Hi
I am 20 weeks pregnant and I am having terrible pain with my sciatic nerve. My gyno has given me a prescription to visit a physiotherapist or have a massage. Does anyone recommend any where good in the Basel area that speak English. I have not been in Switzerland long and I am still trying to get to grips with things here.

Thanks

Re: physio / massage needed (pregnancy related)

Heya! I'm also based in Basel, and looked for a place that could give a good massage, but, despite trying several places, didn't have much luck. In the end, I took the train to Zurich to get a massage from Emma Gilbert - http://www.sportsmassage.ch/ and it was TOTALLY worth it. She's British, so there were no communication issues. I know "Sports massage" rings warning bells (if you're pregnant, maybe you're not looking for something quite so rough), but Emma will tailor the massage to your needs. I can't praise her enough, honestly! I was at the finishing stages of my dissertation, and she sorted my back out completely! I think she has an advertisement on here too...

Re: physio / massage needed (pregnancy related)

I'm in a similar boat and the pain is so bad I can barely walk right now. Anyone have leads for a massage therapist in Zurich who can do an in-home massage?

Re: physio / massage needed (pregnancy related)

My wife is in the 5th month pregnancy. She has strong pain on upper back. She got a recommendation from the doctor to visit physiotherapy. And with this letter from doctor, insurance company will pay for it. Therefore she’s looking for real physiotherapy clinic in Zurich. (I guess insurance will not pay for massage in normal massage center).

We would really appreciate if someone knows any good clinic to recommend (better in Oerlikon area but other areas are also fine) or has any experience to share with us.

We also wonder if the physiotherapy in clinic would be a massage or more serious? Thanksss
