Pregnancy Massage – Prone or Side

Whats the best position to receive a pregnancy massage?

There has always been much debate about ‘what is the best position’ to receive a pregnancy massage. There are mums that love lying face down and other mums that say ‘it just doesn’t feel right’. Looking back through history, mums have always had their bellies oiled, decorated and worshiped.

Pregnancy massage tables, and pillows with cut outs etc are a recent addition within the massage modality and can further strain posterior structures and the already hard working uterine ligaments.
