Prenatal Massage

Prenatal Massage is a form of therapeutic bodywork that focuses on the unique needs of the mother-to- be. While beneficial throughout a woman’s pregnancy, prenatal massage can be especially beneficial in the second and third trimesters when the extra weight in your belly can cause a variety of discomforts such as low back pain, upper back pain, headaches, leg cramping, sacroiliac and hip pain, and general fatigue.

Our goal at Massage Therapy of Boston is to make you as very comfortable as possible on the table while you are receiving bodywork so you can experience the most benefits from your massage. We use a side-lying position with supportive, soft cushions to alleviate any undue strain on the low back and pelvis. If you are not quite ready for side-lying, your therapist may have you on your back with a small cushion placed under one hip to provide slight elevation.

Prenatal massage can reduce anxiety, decrease symptoms of depression, and alleviate muscle aches and joint pains. Since massage stimulates the lymphatic system to flush out waste in the body, prenatal massage can be very effective for helping to reduce edema, or swelling of the joints, that often occurs during pregnancy. Many pregnant women also report that they are able to sleep much better when prenatal massage is a regular part of their prenatal care.


We would love the opportunity to help you on your path to being healthy, balanced, and pain-free.
