What To Expect

Prenatal massage therapy uses many of the same techniques that are used during a regular massage appointment. Of course, they’re applied differently to prevent unnecessary strain on your ligaments. The therapist will instruct you to lie on your side during the session or on specially-designed cushions that support your stomach. You may also benefit from self-massage techniques or stretches to perform between sessions.

Is A Prenatal Massage Right For You?

While pregnancy or prenatal massages do a lot of good for expectant mothers, it may not be the right therapy for every pregnancy. Some massage techniques can aggravate certain pregnancy complications (like bleeding or pre-term contractions). If yours is a high-risk pregnancy, then massage therapy is generally not recommended. If you have concerns about how massage therapy could impact your situation, please talk to your doctor before visiting us.
