Before coming in for any treatments we do recommend getting clearance and approval by your healthcare physician.

Prenatal massage can ease some of the aches and pains of pregnancy and help you relax. It may also reduce swelling, improve mood, and help relieve some pregnancy depression and anxiety.

There are situations when a pregnant woman should think carefully about getting a massage:

1. Women in their first trimester of pregnancy

The first trimester carries an increased risk of miscarriage, and there are concerns that the increased blood flow during a massage might be harmful.

Second, there are pressure points in the body that are thought to initiate contractions or potentially induce labour. Because of this, massage in the first trimester is better to be avoided.

2. Women with certain medical conditions

Massage therapy engages the circulatory system, which can alter blood flow in the body and potentially affect certain health conditions. If you have any of the following issues, talk to your doctor before getting a prenatal massage at any point in your pregnancy:

  • High blood pressure that isn’t controlled by medication
  • High-risk pregnancy concerns, such congenital heart disease or preeclampsia
  • Recent injury or surgery
  • Recent organ transplant
