"I always feel so incredible after my massage. I always drink plenty of water afterwards to help force toxins out of my body, which is a tip I learned from Crystal. She makes you feel comfortable from the moment you arrive until you are finished. She can also adjust the pressure used on the massage, but you have to let her know whether you like it lighter or deeper. I try to see her at least once a month. I wouldn't go to anyone else in the area and I travel 100 miles to get my massage. But it's well worth it!"

"Radiant You Salon is owned and operated by Tammy, a most talented hair and makeup artist. Not only do I use Radiant You Salon for my own hair styling, I have had Tammy do hair and makeup on a number of my photography clients. Tammy fully understands photography makeup which allows me as photographer to know that I am not going to have shiny faces and will have facial features highlighted. This all but eliminates the need for editing. For the bride and the complete bridal party who will be in pictures at a wedding this can be a great help in having the pictures look that much better. For continual hair care and hair and makeup for special occasions such as weddings, special dates, proms, etc. Radiant You Salon is the place!"

"These two are fabulous! Initially I hired them to make an entryway larger by cutting out a partial wall and installing a new light. They did such a fantastic job that I hired them to complete my renovation on the bathroom (including fixing other contractors mistakes). They are meticulous in their work, do not overestimate, and most importantly they want to make sure the client is happy with the end result. I also had to go out of town for a few days and felt extremely comforatable with them working in my house while I was away. I am so happy with my new entryway and beautiful bathroom. I cannot say enough good things about these two and I will definitely be hiring them for more projects."

"I love my massages from Jessica! She makes you feel calm & really relaxed through the whole massage. Her massages feel so good! And when I'm hurting she does her best to fit me in & makes the pain feel better. I would recommend her to anyone needing a massages, even if it's just a chair massage. Those are just as good."

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.
