Shane M. says, "After three sessions under Estela's care, I can say that I have received some of the best massage therapy in my experience. Estela takes the time to get to know your body, asking about trouble areas, pain points, injury history, and consistent comfort checks (positioning, temperature, pressure) - to then build a comprehensive treatment plan that is unique to you and your individual body's needs, all in an incredibly peaceful and relaxing environment. I will continue to be a client of Estela's as long as she continues to offer her incredible massage therapy services." Read more

Your pregnancy massage questions, answered

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thervo.

How much does prenatal massage cost?

The average cost of a prenatal massage is $75 to $100+ per hour, depending on your location and the demand. Prenatal massage sessions range from 30 minutes to 2 hours in length, with longer sessions costing more in total, and shorter sessions costing more per minute.

  • A 30-minute prenatal massage costs $40 to $60.
  • A 90-minute prenatal massage costs $110 to $150.
  • A 2-hour prenatal massage costs $150 to $250.

What is a prenatal massage, and how is it different?

Prenatal massage uses mostly Swedish massage techniques with gentle pressure and long, sweeping strokes to induce relaxation. Unlike traditional massage, where the client lays flat on a massage table, most prenatal massages use strategically placed pillows to help cradle and support the client comfortably on her side or back. Some facilities have a special pillow that allows you to lay face-down.

Depending on the session length, the therapist may focus on one or more known problem areas, such as the lower back, neck, hips, legs and feet. Prenatal massage never uses deep or intense pressure, which could be harmful during pregnancy.

Are prenatal massages safe?

Prenatal massage is safe in most cases. Be sure to discuss any type of massage therapy with your doctor first to confirm it is safe for you. Avoid prenatal massage if you are experiencing nausea or vomiting or if you have a high-risk pregnancy.

Swedish massage is the most common technique used in prenatal therapy and aims to improve circulation and reduce muscle tension through light, relaxing pressure on the muscles. 

Avoid these types of massage during all stages of pregnancy:

  • Deep-tissue massage
  • Shiatsu
  • Hot stone massage
  • Deep acupressure
  • Percussive tapping techniques
  • Cross-fiber friction
  • Pressure on the abdomen

When can you get a prenatal massage?

You can get a prenatal massage at any time during your pregnancy if you do not have a medical condition that makes it to be unsafe for you or your baby. Still, many doctors do not recommend massage until your second trimester, as the risk of miscarrying is highest during the first trimester. Some facilities will only perform prenatal massage after the first trimester.

What should I wear to a prenatal massage?

What to wear during a prenatal massage is entirely up to you and your personal comfort level. Most therapists recommend wearing your underwear or removing your bra if it is irritating or uncomfortable. The therapist typically uses towels or sheets to cover the body, keep you warm, and expose only the part being massaged.

How do I choose the best prenatal massage therapist near me?

When searching for prenatal massage therapy near you, be sure to:

  • Choose a therapist or company that is licensed, insured, and has been in business for at least 5 years.
  • Check their licensing information. Most states have an online database where you can search for a therapist's license and status.
  • If your state does not have massage therapy licensure laws, look for a therapist who has at least 500 hours of training from a reputable massage therapy program.
  • Look for members of professional organizations like the American Massage Therapy Association (AMTA) or the Associated Bodywork and Massage Professionals (ABMP).
  • Check out their reviews on Thervo and Google.
  • Ask for local references.

What questions should I ask when searching for prenatal massage therapist?

Asking the right questions will help you choose the best prenatal massage therapist near you:

  • Are you licensed and insured?
  • How long have you been a massage therapist?
  • Do you have specific prenatal massage training?
  • How long have you been doing prenatal massage?
  • Do you require a health questionnaire?
  • How often can I get a massage during my pregnancy?
  • Do you offer a discount if I purchase multiple sessions at once?
