Pregnancy massage focuses on addressing the special needs of expecting women. Our policy states as long as the pregnancy is not high risk, services can be performed at any time (from 0-40 weeks) during the term of pregnancy without a doctor's note.
Specially-designed massage tables, cushions, and side-lying postures are used to prevent putting pressure on the abdomen. Using pillows with side-lying postures which have been the most beneficial for my pregnant women.

When performed by a trained perinatal specialist,
many methods of massage and somatic therapies are both effective and safe prenatally and during labor and postpartum periods of women’s pregnancies.

discomforts and concerns and enhance the physiological
and emotional well-being of both mother and fetus.
Skilled, appropriate touch facilitates labor, shortening labor times and easing pain and anxiety. Pregnancy Massage may be performed in the following sessions:

In the postpartum period, specialized techniques rebalance structure, physiology, and emotions of the new mother and may help her to bond with and care for her infant up to 12 weeks after giving birth.
