Whom is it for?

This is for women who are in their second and third trimester. Due to the high risk in the first trimester, massage is contra indicated, meaning it is not recommended.
Prenatal massage may also help to improve circulation, reduce swelling, and relieve headaches and backaches commonly experienced during pregnancy. It can also be beneficial for reducing stress and anxiety levels, which may have a positive impact on the mother and her growing baby.
Prenatal massage therapists are trained to modify their techniques and avoid certain areas of the body that may be sensitive or contraindicated during pregnancy. It is always important for pregnant women to consult with their healthcare provider before getting a prenatal massage, and to seek out a licensed massage therapist with experience in prenatal massage.
Overall, prenatal massage can be a wonderful way for expectant mothers to take care of themselves during this special time, promoting both physical and emotional well-being.
You are laying on your side while being properly bolstered to support healthy alignment when you are on your side. You can still get a full body massage in this position. Half way through the massage you will turn to your other side and have the pillows re-adjusted for comfort for the other half of the massage.
