What is a Pregnancy Massage?
Also referred to as prenatal massage, a pregnancy massage is a specific type of massage intended for women who are pregnant. It is an exciting time for mothers when they are expecting, but it can bring a lot of aches and pains to your body. A massage during pregnancy is a great and relaxing way to help alleviate these pains. Massage therapy for pregnancy can help with the change of posture and weight. Since pregnancy can add extra stress on your joints and muscles, a massage during pregnancy can provide a sense of relief through the special techniques used by our Registered Massage Therapists (RMT).
Is a Massage Safe During Pregnancy?
Yes! A massage during pregnancy is safe. However, this is a treatment that should only be performed by someone that is certified in massage therapy for pregnancy, which all of our RMTs are.

It is always advised that you check with a physician before you receive a pregnancy massage.
