How Will I Receive My Massage?
When receiving pregnancy massage, you are positioned on your side to give the therapist access to your back, or in a semi-reclining position for massage on the front of your body. Heaven's Hands also utilizes special cushions for pregnant women that provide maximum comfort during the massage.

What Techniques Will Be Used?
Heaven's Hands incorporates a variety of techniques into our work. Depending upon where you are in the pregnancy, the therapist may utilize Reflexology, Swedish Massage, or very light Shiatsu.

Are There times When Massage During Pregnancy Should Be Avoided?
Women with normal, low-risk pregnancies can benefit greatly from massage by a trained pregnancy massage therapist at Heaven's Hands.  However, women in high risk pregnancies should consult with their doctor before beginning a massage therapy program. If at any time during the massage you experience discomfort, tell the therapist immediately.

What About Massage After Delivery of My Baby?
Massage during the weeks after delivery helps to restore muscle tone in the abdomen and reposition the pelvis. Inquire about learning how to massage your baby...touch is a very important part of the bonding process.
