How is Pregnancy Massage done?

Pregnancy Massage is typically done in a side lying position using pillows as support for a more comfortable feel and safe position for the expecting mother and baby. The Mother may choose to lay face down if preferred and able too. Pregnancy Massage can be done at any stage of the pregnancy, but it is typically done after the first trimester as massaging during the first trimester may trigger morning sickness and dizziness.

The benefits of Pregnancy Massage

  • Headaches that may come with pregnancy can be eased by focusing on certain points in the shoulders, neck & head.
