$80 for a 1 hour non rushed prenatal massages session. Coming soon
Prenatal massages should start after the first trimester. Some massage therapists perform prenatal massages during the first trimester, but this is not advisable because the risks of miscarriage are considerably higher during the first twelve weeks. The massage therapist would have to see a GP or treating doctors certificate saying it is safe for pain management, they will tell you the areas not to massage.
I know this first hand as I have had a doctors certificate saying it is safe to massage there patents for pain management, it will tell you where not to massage.
Some women have pain in the neck and shoulders while they are still working and a doctor will ask for remedial massage for pain management, but you must still be careful with the massage.
If you have have any medical problems like diabetes, it’s best you visit the doctor to determine when it is safe to start massage therapy. Prenatal massage in the first trimester can also trigger nausea and exacerbate feelings of morning sickness. In the case of a complicated or high-risk pregnancy, extra caution should be used, and in extreme cases, prenatal massages should be avoided.
Pregnancy massage or prenatal massage is a massage therapy specifically designed for use during pregnancy. This type of massage is similar in many ways to regular massage. The main difference is that a pregnancy massage is adapted and tailored to promote the wellbeing of both infant and mother.
The massage therapist could use slightly softer or firmer techniques and could use different positions to promote comfort during the massage itself. If done by a qualified massage therapist trained in prenatal massage, it can be nothing short of a godsend as it helps to relieve multiple symptoms associated with pregnancy.
Trigger point therapy may also be helpful in relieving shoulders, neck, lighter trigger points in the lower back, hip and glute pain, but not on the lower limbs at any time due to blood clots that might happen within the legs. Please see more information on my blog. :)
