Prenatal Massage

As a Licensed Massage Therapist in New York State I specialize in Prenatal and Postpartum Massage. Typically given in the side lying position sometimes in a semi-reclined position, these sessions focus on increasing circulation and supporting relaxation. Focused work around areas of concern including the shoulders, hips and lower back to relieve tension. Prenatal massage can be safely given through all stages of pregnancy but it is generally recommended to start a routine massage practice after the first trimester.
