A prenatal or pregnancy massage relaxes muscles, eases sore spots, and enhances circulation and mobility for pregnant women. Trained prenatal massage therapists understand the unique circumstances of the pregnant body. A qualified professional prenatal massage therapist will have completed a maternity course to learn basics such as positioning and pressure points for pregnancy. Several factors affect the cost.

Duration

Prenatal massage therapists offer sessions in varying lengths, lasting typically from 30 minutes to 120 minutes. The longer the massage, the more it will cost, although the shortest option will usually cost more per minute. Here are some rate examples:

  • Be Well Massage Therapy of Haddonfield, New Jersey, offers a 30-minute massage for $45, 45 minutes for $60, 60 minutes for $75, 75 minutes for $90 and 90 minutes for $105.

  • Jaci Yeager Massage Therapy & Associates of Wayne, Pennsylvania, 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.

Other therapists offer only one set time. For example, Alchemy Massage and Bodyworks of Lansdale, Pennsylvania, offers a 60-minute massages for $60 and no other options.

Packages

Some providers offer packages of multiple massages, which is a good way to save. Be Well Massage Therapy offers three-massage packages for $210, which is a $5 savings per massage, and a five-massage package $350, also a $5 savings per massage.

Location

Some prenatal massage therapists have their own office or studio location; others travel to clients. The latter may charge travel fees in addition to the cost of the massage. Affordable Professional Massage of West Chester, Pennsylvania, offers an hourlong massage in his home office for $39, but charges $49–$65 to travel to clients, depending on their location.

Tipping

Some therapists include gratuity as part of their fees. If it’s not obvious that a tip is included, the standard rate for tipping is 15 percent to 20 percent of the massage fee. It’s not necessary to tip for massage services provided in a medical office.

Cost-saving strategies

Weekday when prices can be slightly lower for some providers. Also, some insurance plans cover prenatal massage. Package deals provide multiple massages at a reduced rate.

Anointed Hands Massage

I am 7 and half months pregnant and was looking for a kind and competent massage therapist. Cheryl is all that and more. She took the time to ask me detailed questions about my pregnancy before she proceeded with the most heavenly massage. Her use of Deterra essential oils and the diffuser really elevated the experience for me in comparison to other massages. Would highly recommend and will be going back very soon :)

Josephine Russell Massage at Glatter Fitness

Josephine was very professional and knowledgeable about pregnancy/prenatal massage. I appreciated being able to visit her when the gym was closed, so it was an extra-private environment.

Pea in a Pod Pregnancy Massage

Princina is the best Prenatal Massage Therapist in Southern California hand down. She was nice enough to come to my girl friends house early Sunday morning on Valentine's Day. That already said a lot to me. To take the time out on a holiday to come give my girlfriend the best massage she has ever gotten really impressed me. I have taken my girl friend to very high end massage places and they do not compare to Princina Benson. She came fully equipped and even spent an extra 30 minutes making sure my girl friend was fully relaxed. Anyone who reads this, you have to experience a taste of heaven for yourself. THANK YOU PRINCINA.
