I get a lot of questions about positioning for my pregnancy treatments.
I consider the best position for a pregnant woman during massage to be side-lying. Tables that provide a hole in which the uterus can fit may not be reliable and can still apply pressure to the abdomen, or allow the abdomen to dangle, causing uncomfortable stretching of the uterine ligaments.
I use pillows and bolsters to align the body and ensure you and bump are completely comfortable. We first massage one side and then turn over to do the other side. It's very comfortable and allows for a great back and shoulders treatments. This position also allows very effective treatment of hips and lower back for sciatic and pelvic girdle pain.
