Pre-Natal Massage

Whether you're expecting your first child, or your 2nd, 3rd, 4th, or beyond, each pregnancy is different with its own experience and challenges.  While experiencing one of the joys of life, your body will also change dramatically over all three trimesters of your pregnancy, creating more stress to your everyday life.

A Pre-Natal massage has all the benefits of a usual massage, including reduced stress, lessening of aches and pains, improved circulation, and especially promoting better sleep by reducing muscle tension and promoting relaxation.  Getting a massage during your pregnancy is one of the best things you can do for yourself.

Is Pre-Natal massage safe?  For people who are experiencing a safe, normal pregnancy, pre-natal massage is very safe is done with the proper support systems for the body.  There are some cases where massage is not recommended during pregnancy:
  • High-risk pregnancies
  • Blood clots, as they may be dislodged during massage
  • Cramping or bleeding
  • Using acupressure or reflexology techniques, especially on points related to the uterus and ovaries
  • Using aromatherapy or essential oils, as pregnant women are prone to nausea
  • Using deep tissue techniques
  • Lying on your back which will increase pressure directly on the vena cava, the largest vein
  • Leg massage during thrombophlebitis or deep vein thrombosis as blood clots may be dislodged
If you are not sure, check with your doctor to get approval for massage during your pregnancy.  For most women with good progress and no complications during your pregnancy, massage will be fine and likely the best thing you can do for yourself in this stage of your life.

In our Pre-Natal massage, you will be lying draped on our portable massage table in a side-lying position to maximize comfort and safety, while draped as usual as in a typical massage session.  State-of-the-art pillows and support systems are used to support your body and ensure one of the most comfortable sessions you can possibly experience during your pregnancy.  Many women who have experienced our pre-natal massage wish they had similar pillows and cushions in their own home for everyday use.
