Prenatal massage or pregnancy massage is massage therapy specifically tailored for a pregnant women and can be a safe way for women to get a massage during pregnancy. It can help reduce pregnancy body aches, reduce stress, and ease muscle tension.
For safety considerations, Spa2U does not perform massage in the first trimester. If you're considering prenatal massage, make sure to talk with your doctor first.
Prenatal massage uses mild pressure similar to Swedish massage. The therapist will focus on areas such as your lower back, hips, and legs. You can be fully or partially undressed depending on your comfort level. During the massage, you’ll either lie on your side or on a specially designed table with a cutout for your belly. If you’ve had pain in your calves or other parts of your leg, see a doctor before you have a massage.
