But for those without a physical problem should get a massage at least once a month to decrease tension, stiffness, stress, and to prevent problems before they happen. There’s an old adage that “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” It is much easier for us to help you prevent a problem than it is for us to help you fix a problem.

I am pregnant. Can I get a massage in the 1st trimester?

The 1st trimester is the greatest risk for miscarriage. If you are having a normal pregnancy and are in good health, a massage may be okay. If you are one who is at high risk, and if you have previously had a miscarriage, then you should definitely speak to your doctor/obgyn to see if massage is right for you. If you are in good health and still have doubts, you should speak to your doctor/obgyn before getting a massage. A knowledgable, certified massage therapist knows to avoid certain pressure points that can stimulate labor, such as the back of the lower calf area on your legs and too much circular massage on the Abdominal massage should be avoided until 2nd trimester and no reflexology for 1st trimester.

Once you are in your second trimester you should no longer lie on your stomach Also, if you lie on your back you should have a small pillow or towel under your right hip/low back area to keep the pressure off of the vena cava–you do not want blood flow to the baby being disrupted.
