"oh wow!!! Just had a 90 minute ashiatsu massage with Maya Nicholls on Saturday. Her new space is delightful - cozy and warm but full of light (literally and figuratively). She went over what ashiatsu was and what to expect, as I knew very little about it. I was surprised by how much I immediately loved it! She was very thorough in the massage too - I was thinking that she couldn't possibly do my feet, or forearms, hands, etc - but she did and it felt incredible! I melted into the table and felt that way for the rest of the day. I was in such a good mood, relaxed, happy, compassionate with my body. It was such a great day! I can't wait to go back!!!"

"Dan is a great massage therapist! I reached out to him because I was in a time crunch, and he arrived early and did a amazing job. He is very intuitive and made my lower back and neck feel much better and I felt like I had my own custom massage, so thank you very much Dan. He's awesome and very professional."

"I have never met anyone quite like Coralie. In a word she is amazing. Not only does she have a deep understanding of the human body and how it works, she intuitively knows where to put her energy to help you heal. I have had massages in the past that hurt when my knots are being worked out on my back and she was able to work out the knots without the pain. After my massage I was left with a body that felt more relaxed than it ever has and I will not go anywhere else again. She is simply amazing. "

"I have been going to a masseuse for years and I've seeing probably 15 different practitioners. Chelsea is without a doubt the BEST I have ever seen. She provides perfect pressure, incorporates interesting methods (cranial-sacral) and creates the perfect soothing environment. She is sweet and comfortable around, but she really respects my need for quiet and doesn't talk a bunch during the massage. More than anything, she instantly pinpoints places on the body that need the most work- and has cured my neck pain on many occasions. I refuse to see anyone else ever again; she's amazing!"

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.
