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.

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.
Specialized, advanced training in the anatomy, physiology, complications, precautions, and contraindications is highly recommended, and many practitioners require referrals from physicians prior to therapy.

With my Pregnancy Massage techniques you can receive a full body massage while side-lying with cushions & pillows. We do not use a pregnancy table.
We utilize our unscented massage lotion for this service however we also offer a Virgin coconut oil option for women who are concerned with a skin sensitivity or allergic reaction.
During your labor term if at any point you become a high-risk pregnancy or high-risk of miscarriage it’s contraindicated to receive service. Also if you’re experiencing nausea, vomiting, or morning sickness prenatal/pregnancy massage would be good to avoid until the symptoms ease.
For our newbies to massage and/or 1st timers with our highly skilled, trained, licensed and insured therapist we always say start off with no more than an hour and go from there, always making sure both you and the therapist are a good match.
