What is Pregnancy Massage?
A Pregnancy Massage is a relaxing whole-body massage specially adapted for those who are pregnant, to take into account the changing pressures on the body, to ensure the safety of both mother and child. It uses gentle massage strokes to help alleviate the aches and tightness brought on by daily stresses.
What should I expect from a Pregnancy Massage?
A Pregnancy Massage will usually last around 1 hour and will be performed on a massage table (brought by the therapist). The session can be extended if desired. The therapist will assist you with getting onto and off of the table as necessary. Unlike most other table massages, the massage will be performed with you in a side-lying position, using cushions for support. You will have one full side of your body massaged before moving onto your other side.
Word of warning: Due to insurance company restrictions, the therapist is unable to perform this massage (or any other massage) on those who are in the first 12 weeks of their pregnancy.
What should I wear for a Pregnancy Massage?
A Pregnancy Massage uses oils, which can sometimes stain material, so the ideal way to have the massage is to be undressed (there will be towels available to cover you as necessary). However, if you wish to keep your underwear on, you are welcome to do so, and the therapist will work around this. The general rule for the best massage experience possible is; wear as little as possible, but enough to feel comfortable.
