How often should you have pregnancy massage?

Massage is a fantastic way to release tension and build and maintain strength in the body. It is an incredibly supportive and restorative practice. Our practitioners work with you to find a massage schedule that works for you and your body.

If you have no underlying muscular tension or issues we recommend the following schedule to maintain good health throughout your pregnancy and post delivery:

  • Once a month for the first 3 months of pregnancy
  • Every fortnight for the next 5 months of pregnancy
  • Once a week for the final month of pregnancy
  • Fortnightly post delivery for a couple of months
  • And monthly throughout motherhood

If however, you have any other issues (i.e. chronic long-standing conditions, or particularly dense muscular tissue, sore hips/back, swelling, lower back pain, breastfeeding tension in neck and shoulders, sleeplessness, headaches etc.), more frequent treatments may be required. After assessing your needs, we tailor a treatment plan specifically for you.

Receiving massage on a regular basis will result in cumulative health benefits, including promotion of a healthy circulatory system, good posture, and a healthy happy Mother.
