Prenatal / Pregnancy Massage
The goal of prenatal or pregnancy massage therapy is to promote overall health and prepare a pregnant woman physically and psychologically for labor.
Therapeutic massage has been used for centuries to improve overall health, reduce stress and relieve muscle tension. Studies indicate that massage therapy performed during pregnancy can relieve muscle and join pain, decrease anxiety and assist in creating a positive labor experience.
Many health insurance companies cover massage therapy with a referral from your physician or OB/GYN and we are happy to assist you with determining your benefits.
Our rates for pregnancy massage are $70 per hour for cash payment at the time of service, some of the lowest rates on the Eastside for a wonderful massage therapy session!
