And it’s the prenatal massage where these therapists can really shine, as the management of pain during pregnancy has been their focus for over two decades. However the mother is most comfortable—face down, seated, or sideways—the therapist can help relieve that tension so unique to pregnancy, in a way that will give the expectant mother some much needed peace.
While studies show that a massage session can significantly reduce pain and discomfort during pregnancy, a prenatal massage is different from traditional massage in a few important ways.
During a prenatal massage, the client should lie on her side, with her body weight supported by specially designed pillows. Some therapists, however, utilize pregnancy massage tables, which have a cutout for the abdomen, enabling the client to lie on her stomach.
The massage therapist will likely focus on the lower back, as that’s a source of discomfort for many pregnant women, and on the head, neck, and shoulders to help relieve headaches.
First of all, an expectant mother should be cleared by her doctor before getting a massage. During the session, the therapist will likely steer clear of the belly and only lightly massage the legs, to avoid releasing blood clots.
