Massage is safe during all phases of pregnancy, and has many benefits, including:

  • Reduced back and joint pain
  • Reduced anxiety, stress, headaches, and muscle tension
  • Better sleep
  • Reduced swelling
  • Improved circulation and oxygenation of muscles and soft tissues

Before I became a massage therapist, my wife had trouble finding someone to give her a firm massage to relieve joint and muscle pain while pregnant. If you’re looking for a firm yet gentle touch, I encourage you to contact me.

From 22 weeks onward, pregnancy massages start semi-reclined with the right hip elevated to prevent supine hypotensive syndrome. I massage the head, neck, shoulders, arms and hands. I use light compressions on the legs, as deep tissue massage is contraindicated in the legs during pregnancy to reduce the risk of blood clots. You’ll also get a great ankle and foot massage.

From the semi-reclined position, you turn to the side. The majority of the massage is then focused on the back and hips.

I am not trained to work with high-risk pregnancies, which include risk factors such as gestational diabetes (unless well managed by a healthcare provider), preeclampsia, eclampsia, placenta previa, placental abruption, premature labor, or lack of fetal movement for 8 to 10 hours.

I also offer perinatal massage during the postpartum period.
