"Ms. Suzanne is an excellent massage therapist. Before I met her, my whole body was aching. When she gave me a one hour massage, I began to feel better. Now my stress levels have tremendously reduced. She is kind, polite, and professional. I will book another appointment with her and recommend her to others. Thank you Suzanne. Gambo Ibrahim"

"Heidi G. is my fourth massage therapist in ten years and I plan to stay with her as long as she practices. Heidi has eased my aches and pains for over a year. She must feel the knots that creep up on me and works on them until they release. I am 84 and know how quickly I can lose mobility in my shoulders and arms if I didn't have Heidi's help. My wife urged me to start in getting a massage when my shoulder froze. This is one of those times I suggest you men listen to your wives."

"Marcus is extremely skilled at what he does—after hearing what my problem areas were he pinpointed them right away and used different methods to massage and relax them. His technique is great; he is very in tune with what he does and the results show it. I felt so amazing after my first session with him and cannot wait for the next one!"

"My experience at Seva studio exceded my expectations. During my Reiki treatment I felt deeply connected with Lauren's process and by the way I reacted to the method that she used during my treatment. It was my first experience with Reiki and I feel that it definitely helped me with the issues that were afflicting me, and allowed me to be more self aware and less stressed. The environment upon entering was soothing and induced immediate relaxation. Lauren focuses each treatment based on the individuals personal history and motivations. I would recommend Seva Studio to anyone looking for healing through Reiki, yoga or meditation."

"Had a great massage with Janthima. She has a naturally pleasant disposition and is very professional. She worked on an area around my shoulder and really made it feel better. This may sound like a contradiction, but she used a rather gentle touch that was somehow super effective at getting out the knots. Great massage!"

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.
