"I highly recommend Unlockd Massage! Before my massage, I had deep pain in my lower back and hips. Cedric was able to target the exact area that had been bothering me, and the day after my massage I was completely pain free! Cedric not only made me feel relaxed and comfortable during my appointment, but is very knowledgeable in his craft. I would definitely see him again!"

"I got this massage for my wife who is 38 weeks pregnant. Her OB recommended a pregnancy massage to relieve her back pain and sciatica. Jillian was very communicative from the request to her arrival. She even arrived at our home 15 minutes early, for set up and to talk to my wife on what her needs were. After her 90 Minute session, my wife was a different person: able to walk without pain in her back, legs, and overall felt refreshed. It’s been 48 hours since her massage, and she is still feeling great! She mentioned how she only wished she received more during her pregnancy! She wouldn’t hesitate to call upon Jillian again. She really like her technique and was very personable before and after, yet allowed her to relax during the session. We would certainly welcome Jillian back again. Just all around wonderful person, personable, professional, and superior value for the level of service. Thanks Jillian!"

"It was my first time trying “Reiki Body work”. I usually get massage but this was a unique experience. Pros: I kinda got the best of both worlds. Reiki and massage. My therapist was also a doctor!!!!! Very knowledgeable, and talented. Not pushy with products or selling things. Cons: I booked 1 hour session but took 90 min. No extra charge though, just got me behind in my schedule."

"Tonda is the best functional medicine/energy medicine.... massage therapist/biofeedback practitioner that I have ever been treated by. She provided amazing/life saving treatment for my golden-doodle. She is way more than just a massage therapist - she uses her medical intuitive skills along with her 30 years experience as a biofeedback therapist to confirm the cause of the animals challenge- usually a combination of emotional blocks, with subclinical infection and chemicals/heavy metals- and then treats it with her device and gets amazing results!

"I just turned 60. I’m in construction. My body has aches and pains that are new to me. I don’t consider myself old. But I’m trying to convince it that age is just a number. Never had a massage before. I’ve been experiencing lower back pain lately. So I thought what the hell , maybe Ricky should try a massage. So got a hold of Louise and she came over and the magic started. Totally took care of my back pain. I can’t wait for my next massage. I totally recommend Louise to anyone who reads this... She’s The Best"

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What is pregnancy massage?

Pregnancy massage is a therapeutic massage tailored specifically to the needs of a pregnant woman’s body. Before having a prenatal massage, always check in with your prenatal care provider and ask if massage therapy will be safe for you and your pregnancy. A pregnancy massage is much more than just an indulgence. The specialized strokes and techniques used to loosen tight muscles, reduce swelling, alleviate pressure, and ease tension provide positive health benefits for both you and your baby. Experts recommend finding a massage therapist who has received additional training on prenatal massage techniques. This is typically a certification above and beyond their standard massage therapy certification and training requirements. During the massage you will likely lie on your side or in a semi-reclined position; these supported poses keep you and the baby comfortable and free from strain or undue pressure. During the massage, the therapist will listen to what body challenges you are experiencing and work to release tension. The massage should be a relaxing and very soothing experience.

Is hot stone massage safe in pregnancy?

If you’re ready for relaxation and relief from pregnancy pains, prenatal massage may be a great healing option. Once your prenatal care provider has approved you for pregnancy massage, look for a licensed massage therapist who also has training and certification in prenatal massage techniques.

The safety of hot stone massage during pregnancy depends on several factors including the stage of your pregnancy and where on the body the hot stones are applied. The massage therapist should avoid raising your core temperature or using hot stones on the abdomen. When in doubt, talk to your prenatal care provider.

Is Swedish massage safe during pregnancy?

As long as your prenatal care physician has cleared you for prenatal massage, it should be safe to indulge yourself in a Swedish massage during pregnancy. In fact, scheduling regular pregnancy massages can have wonderful health benefits for you and the baby. Swedish and other massages can feel great and also have a variety of health benefits, according to studies published by the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services. Some of the benefits of pregnancy massage include reduction in leg and back pain, lower levels of anxiety and depression, and a better overall mood.

To find the right massage therapist for you, read the therapist’s online reviews and call to ask them about their experience with prenatal massage. Massage therapists who have been specially trained in prenatal massage techniques often advertise this area of expertise on their websites. Don’t hesitate to ask questions beforehand, and to communicate during the massage about what does and does not feel good.

How much are pregnancy massages?

Prenatal massages can be a safe and therapeutic way to alleviate the aches and pains of pregnancy. A prenatal massage can promote a sense of relaxation and well-being for expectant mothers. The national average cost for a pregnancy massage ranges between $70 and $90. The cost of a pregnancy massage will vary depending on where you live, the length of the massage, and the massage therapist. Typically, the longer a massage, the higher the cost. Some massage therapists charge the same rate per minute, regardless of massage length, while others charge less per minute for longer appointments. Here are two examples of average prenatal massage costs:

  • Therapist A: Offers a 30-minute massage for $45, 45 minutes for $60, 60 minutes for $75, 75 minutes for $90 and 90 minutes for $105.
  • Therapist B: offers a 30-minute massage for $45, a 60-minute massage for $85, a 90-minute massage for $115 and a 120-minute massage for $145.

Can you have massages while pregnant?

Not only can you have a massage while pregnant, multiple scientific studies published by the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services demonstrate that pregnancy massages provide physical and mental benefits to pregnant women and women in labor. Always ask your OB-GYN about receiving massages before starting any massage therapy to make sure it is safe for your own pregnancy. Pregnancy massage can alleviate pain, improve mental health and feel great. According to the DHHS, the benefits can include:  

  • Decreased depression.
  • Decreased anxiety.
  • Decreased leg and back pain.
  • Lower cortisol levels, which in turn lowers prematurity rates.
  • Lessened labor pain (for women who received massage during labor).
  • Labor time that is three hours shorter, on average, for women who receive massage during labor.
