I’ve never had a massage. What should I expect?
Do I have to get completely undressed?
Can I get a massage if I’m pregnant?
Your massage therapist will use side-lying positions and pillows to enhance your comfort. Areas that are focused on during prenatal massage include hips, knees, neck and shoulders. Massage during this stage of your pregnancy is very beneficial for improving circulation, reducing tension and promoting general relaxation.
What if I’m overweight? Will massage still be beneficial to me?
Are there any medical conditions that would exclude me from being able to receive a massage?
If you have a local injury you can still have a massage. Your massage therapist will work around the problem area and focus on other areas that are not directly affected.
