Pregnancy Massage vs. Non Pregnancy Massage
Viva la difference!
Therapist training: Many massage therapists who regularly do pregnancy massage have advance training specifically in performing prenatal and postpartum massage.
Massage strokes: Massage strokes will vary between the massages and during the different trimesters of pregnancy. This is due to the elimination of some strokes that could cause nausea.
Table positioning: How the woman is positioned on the massage table changes for each trimester. During maternity massage, special tables, side line or maternity pillows will be used.
