Pregnancy massage (also referred to as prenatal massage) is a style of massage and bodywork designed specifically for expectant mothers. Pregnancy is a time when a woman’s body endures tremendous stress due to dramatic physical and emotional changes.
Using various techniques, pregnancy massage helps releive the pain and discomfort experienced throughout pregnancy. The benefits are profound, including emotional support, the relief of joint pain due to extra weight, improved breathing, and increased circulation to help with or prevent swelling.

Massage techniques used for Prenatal massage:
Prenatal massage is done in a side posture position using several pillows to comfort and support the body. Massage therapists are trained in this type of massage and know to avoid certain pressure point areas of the body during pregnancy. This is to prevent stimulation to certain areas and although this is necessary during the majority of pregnancy, it can be helpful to massage these areas once full term is reached as it can sometimes help speed up the process of delivery.
Pregnancy massage can be extremely beneficial both physically and emotionally. It can be performed once the expectant mother has completed her first trimester.
