Clients in all trimesters are welcome, however, we encourage those who are high-risk to consult with their doctor before receiving massage.
During the first trimester, massages are usually the same as a normal massage. Laying face down and face up on the table. Less pressure is used on the lower back. Areas which are troubling the client are focused on or a generally full-body session for relaxation is performed.
Once laying face down isn't an option, Amber will have the client lay on the sides for the massage. We use a large, firm body pillow and standard pillow so the client is as comfortable as possible. As pregnancy progresses, more focus is usually given to lower back, hips, legs and feet.
