"I spent a couple afternoons at Staci's Self Care. Staci patiently listened to my concerns and developed a massage therapy session addressing my physical, mental, and spiritual well-being. After yoga therapy I felt pain free, energized, and ready to schedule a return visit for another Integrated Massage Experience. I feel grateful to have Staci's Self Care in our Community."

"Dennis did a fantastic job massaging me. After a very long stint of work, I was looking for some relaxation and Dennis was just the answer! TSR Massage Therapy is a quaint facility that promises to relax you once you lay on the table. Dennis started on my front leaving the back and shoulder muscles to the end which was a nice change. Thank you Dennis, if I am in the Melbourne region again I will be returning!"

"I received my first massage from Kaitlin this afternoon. Now I know why she has such great reviews on Thumbtack. I am under pain management, lots of back issues (etc...) & I'm still in Physical Therapy - my 3rd round of those since my back surgery last year - so I've just recently been given the "go ahead" on getting a REALLY good deep tissue massage. This is exactly what Kaitlin did for me. I was so impressed with her approach on what my back/neck muscles needed. I understand some of the compliments she received on how surprised they were she could dig deep in the muscles. She really knows how to go about working with my "twisted" muscles. At times it felt like she had at least 3 hands, if not more ;) I've already scheduled my next appointment. Kaitlin is very professional, very knowledgeable in the current methods used for back/neck/joint/TMJ/ect... The temperature, lighting & music creates such a calming environment, which I felt all worked together for an exceptional massage experience. Thank you, Kaitlin. See you in 2 weeks!"

"My experience with Nick was really good. Comprehensive techniques and a warm connecting energy. It never felt like he was rushing or clock-watching. That being said he does tend toward lateness so be patient and the massage can be worth it."

"Sean is great, he is a professional massage therapist as well as a personal trainer. Sean has a vast knowledge of body mechanics, so he is able to hone in on any muscular issues and put back what has been tweaked out. I recommend him and would see him again and again!"

"There is no better way of relaxing after a long week at work than with a facial and massage from Jolyn. She has a magic touch and listens to what you and your body say. Always a pleasure to get "special" treatments from Jolyn for the last 10 years."

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.
