Receive an amazing pregnancy massage from a licensed massage therapist.
A Pregnancy Massage is wonderful for helping reduce pregnancy related body aches and stress, and easing muscle tension. Prenatal massages are generally considered safe after the first trimester, as long as you get the OK from your Doctor and you let me know that you’re pregnant.
You will want to avoid massage during the first three months of pregnancy as it may trigger dizziness and add to morning sickness. Additionally, women who are generally in the high risk category must obtain a recommendation from their Doctor before seeking massage.
Deep tissue work on your legs is contraindicated, as pregnant women are particularly susceptible to blood clots, which deep massage work can dislodge. On other body parts, the pressure can be firm and as deep or as gentle as you’d like. Always communicate with me about what feels good or if something starts to hurt.
During the massage, you’ll lie on your side with extra pillows to support your belly.
