"It's a while (few years) since my last massage and needless to say I was a bit nervous about my appointment with Tony. The main reason being my experience last year with a therapist was by far the worst experience of my life (and I don't even count it as a massage). Tony was beyond AMAZING and God sent. He traveled to my house and worked with my very tight space. He was very in tuned with what my body needed and I dozed off several times during my therapy session. As a result I slept and woke up rested this morning. Thanks a million for your ministry of healing! "

"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"

"I absolutely LOVE anytime I am able to schedule with Christina. From the beginning of the session she was receptive to what I asked for but also guided me through exercises and stretches that can be done to activate or relax the muscles I wanted to target. Her professionalism is something I admired from start to finish. She was always sure to ask me if the pressure was right, if I wasn't already knocked out. The massage I got was a theraputic massage with aroma therapy. One massage I really look forward to with Christina will be the athletic massage. I would highly recommend to book at least an hour and a half session, because once that hour is done, oh you're going to want more time. Thanks Tina for your services and your kindness! I look forward to our next session!"

"At GetUfit Massage, I receive the best therapeutic massage around from the Therapist Starr. The atmosphere and ambiance of GetUFit massage is a piece of heaven on earth, and the massage is healing, invigorating, therapeutic, and completely intoxicating. With stones, essential oils, hot towels, and many, many special types of message, the extraordinary therapist works her magic and reinvents you for an hour or more. It is addicting to say the least and a regular part of my program of working out, and health and wholeness at the GetUFit Gym. After working out, and then getting my weekly massage, I feel like a new person and able to be fluid and whole from the stress of life. Massage at GetUFit is truly nothing short of miraculous and part of the wholeness process I am on. A hearty thank you to Jennifer and Starr at GetUFit for being part of my life and health."

"What I appreciate most about prime body works is that they understand the body on a technical level, like an experienced physical therapist. I go there when my lower back and hip pain becomes a distraction. Shawn knows what wrong based upon the pain that I have and ends up massaging me in places where I never know had muscle!"

"I really liked that David asked the level of massage I would like: easy, medium or hard. I asked for medium-hard. I also liked that he was fair and balanced in that he massaged the right side exactly as he did the left side. I will be going back to him. I highly recommend David."

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.

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.

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.

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.
