Although the goals of both a regular remedial massage and a pregnancy massage are the same, pregnancy the massage is different as it is tailor made to the specific needs of the pregnant woman. The massage therapists working at Melbourne Natural Therapies are specially trained in working with pregnancy. They are all well trained in the safety considerations when it comes to working on a pregnant woman’s body.
Although there is no harm in getting a pregnancy massage from a trained and qualified massage therapist, for women with a high-risk pregnancy it is always a good idea to discuss it first with their doctor before scheduling a prenatal massage at Melbourne Natural Therapies.

A massage therapist specialising in pregnancy knows all the do’s and don’ts of pregnancy massage positioning.
