Is it safe to have a massage during pregnancy?

For most women, having a massage during pregnancy is safe and in fact beneficial. There are some cases where your doctor/midwife will restrict your activity level which also means there is a restriction on getting a massage. If you have been classified as a “high(er) risk” or if you’re uncertain, check with your primary caregiver.

We have the Body Cushion system which allows for the most comfort possible during your massage. These cushions create a hole for your expanding belly that can allow you to safely lie face down and it expands to accommodate you until full term. Your Therapist will assess whether or not lying face down is appropriate, sidelying may be a better option.

When booking an appointment, please mention how many weeks along you will be at the time of your visit to help us prepare properly. When booking online, please choose “Massage Therapy for pregnancy”.
