Prenatal Massage

Tailored for pregnant women to address physical and emotional change.

Prenatal massage is a type of massage therapy specifically designed for pregnant women to help address the physical and emotional changes that occur during pregnancy. It is typically performed by massage therapists who have received specialised training in prenatal massage techniques.

Here are some key aspects of prenatal massage:


Pregnant women are usually positioned on their side during the massage to ensure their comfort and safety. Pillows and bolsters may be used to support the body and provide proper alignment.


Prenatal massage therapists use gentle and nurturing techniques that focus on relieving the specific discomforts associated with pregnancy. These techniques may include Swedish massage, which involves long, gliding strokes, as well as kneading, circular motions, and light tapping.

Areas of focus

Prenatal massage commonly targets areas that tend to experience increased tension or discomfort during pregnancy. These areas may include the lower back, hips, legs, feet, and shoulders. The massage therapist may also address swelling and fluid retention by incorporating lymphatic drainage techniques.

Safety considerations

Prenatal massage takes into account the unique needs and changes in a pregnant woman's body. Massage therapists are trained to modify their techniques to avoid applying excessive pressure on certain areas, such as the abdomen and lower back. They may also avoid certain pressure points that could stimulate contractions.


Prenatal massage offers various benefits for pregnant women. It can help reduce muscle tension, alleviate back and joint pain, improve circulation, reduce swelling, promote relaxation, and relieve stress and anxiety. It can also provide emotional support and contribute to an overall sense of well-being.

It's important to consult with your healthcare provider before receiving prenatal massage to ensure it is safe for you and your pregnancy. Additionally, it's recommended to seek a licensed and experienced prenatal massage therapist who is knowledgeable about the specific considerations and techniques for prenatal massage.
