*What to expect
For the massage, practitioners may use a pregnancy massage table which is designed to accommodate a woman’s pregnant belly. Or, they can use a normal massage table with specially designed pillows to be more comfortable on their side. This helps especially during the later stages of pregnancy.
Before the massage, feel free to ask any questions you might have, our therapists have special training to perform the treatment. The pregnancy massage is very similar to our classic massage but the therapist will make sure that you sit in the correct position to make sure your baby receives oxygen and nutrients.
Usually, the therapist will focus more on areas where you feel most tensed with special care to the lower back, head, and neck for a full-body massage experience
