While pregnancy is one of the most exciting life-changing events, many women experience considerable discomfort. Many pregnant women are curious about how massage could help them have a more comfortable pregnancy. At North County Family Chiropractic, we offer our pregnant patients effective prenatal massage that can be given at every stage of pregnancy.

What Are Some Benefits?

Prenatal massage can

  • Relieve pregnancy-related symptoms like cramps, swelling, muscle aches and joint pain
  • Ease labor pain and improve labor outcome
  • Reduce stretch marks by increasing skin elasticity
  • Decrease anxiety and stress, and sometimes depression
  • Promote relaxation
  • Help the body be better balanced

What to Expect

At your first session, you’ll check in with your massage therapist and let them know what you’re experiencing (e.g. swelling, soreness or sciatica nerve issues). You’ll be asked to complete a questionnaire to let the therapist know of anything they think we should be aware of.
Our massage therapists use pregnancy pillows, so much of the massage is given when the pregnant patient lies on their side.


Do I have to have discomfort to get a massage?

No, by getting massage therapy early in pregnancy, we can help balance muscle tone and reduce tension and stress associated with pregnancy.

Is massage safe during pregnancy?

Yes, as long as the massage therapist is trained in prenatal massage as our therapists are.

How often should I come in?

Women usually come in a few times a month throughout pregnancy.

Is massage used with other services?

It can be used in combination with prenatal chiropractic care or as a stand-alone service.
