Is a Prenatal Massage Right For You?


Are you pregnant and stressed? Have you thought about getting a prenatal massage in Raleigh? If so, you’ve come to the right place! If you haven’t thought about it, now is the time to!

A prenatal massage in Raleigh could help alleviate all the stress and pain you could be experiencing while pregnant!

In our last post we offered a great deal of benefits for getting a massage while pregnant. Many women are worried that a Raleigh massage might not be the best thing to get while with child. Though it’s usually safe, it’s always a great idea to get an approval from your doctor. In fact, most massage therapists require you to have written consent from your doctor.

According to, “While receiving a pregnancy massage, you are positioned on your side using specially designed bolsters and pillows to allow the therapist access to your back. Likewise, more specially designed pillows are used to position you in a semi-reclined position so you can receive work on your belly and anything else that you would normally have massaged if lying flat. No matter the position, you will always remain properly draped except for the area being massaged.”

If you’re still worried about getting a massage while pregnant, contact your doctor and make an appointment to sit down with him and discuss whether or not it’s right for you. There are several reasons that preclude a pregnant woman from receiving a massage. Your doctor can list those reasons and conditions and help you decide about the massage session.
