“What Stage of Pregnancy can I have a massage?”
Pregnancy massage offers several benefits, including relief from back pain, neck and shoulder discomfort, leg cramps, and swelling often experienced during pregnancy. It also helps to reduce stress, promote relaxation, improve sleep quality, and enhance the overall mood. Additionally, the nurturing touch of a prenatal massage can provide emotional support during this transitional period.
It’s safe to have a pregnancy massage in any trimester. Due to insurance reasons we do request a waiver to be signed if having a massage in the first trimester even though it is deemed safe in the first 12 weeks of pregnancy as this is typically where most women may miscarry which is not massage related. It’s always advisable to consult with your healthcare provider and a qualified prenatal massage therapist to determine the most appropriate timing for you. Please feel free to contact Jackie directly of you have any questions regarding your pregnancy massage. Call the clinic and they will give you her direct mobile number to contact.
