A lot of people have asked me what pregnancy massage is and how is it different from a regular massage.
While a woman is pregnant her body undergoes numerous changes physically as well as physiologically and spiritually. The physical changes can cause stress and or discomfort to the mother.
Massage is a wonderful way to help alleviate many of these discomforts, as well as promotes a sense of well-being.
Pregnancy massage is beneficial throughout the entire nine months of the pregnancy; however, if you are having a high risk pregnancy it is best to discuss your condition with your midwife or physician before seeking a therapist. After doing so you may be able to receive massage work with a written release.
Pregnancy massage can include anything from a full body Swedish massage to light massage for comfort. Most massage therapists are trained not only to do massage but various other modalities as well.
It is always best to seek out a therapist who is certified in pregnancy massage because it is important to know and understand what is and is not safe for the mother and her baby as well as having knowledge of pregnancy and the anatomy of a pregnant woman.
A typical full body massage session takes 75 minutes. The mother will be supported with pillows as she lies on her side. She will be draped with a sheet and only the body part that is being worked will be exposed.

This is accomplished by rubbing the muscles with long gliding strokes in the direction of blood returning to the heart. But Swedish massage therapy goes beyond relaxation.
