Pregnancy Massage Tips, Your Health, Preparing for Childbirth

Updated: Apr 30

What you need to ask before booking your prenatal massage?

Not every massage therapist is trained in massaging women who are expecting. Before booking a prenatal massage please make sure the therapist performing the massage has taken the necessary CEU classes for prenatal massage.




What is Prenatal Massage Therapy?

Here at Now and Zen Bodyworks a prenatal massage is only preformed in the second trimester and consists of a light Swedish massage of the entire body with support padding around the mother and fetus. There are specific massage techniques that have been shown to reduce pregnancy discomforts and to enhance the physiological and emotional well-being of both mother and fetus.

Benefits of a Prenatal Massage at Now and Zen Bodyworks

A prenatal massage is not like any other massage. When you’re with child your massage therapist will use side lying during all prenatal massages. The massage techniques are performed by a trained massage therapist. When receiving a prenatal massage at Now and Zen Bodyworks we use pillows to make every mother as comfortable as possible.


How often should you receive a prenatal massage?

Every pregnancy is different for each mother to be.

We suggest that you receive a full body side-lining massage once a month as you body changes every 3-4 weeks if you have a lot of water retention.


How long should the massage last?

A 60 minute massage is plenty to lay on your side but as you can image a 90 minute massage is very relaxing. As your therapist if there is time to upgrade your session.
