At Got Knots Massage Therapy, our therapists are specifically trained in prenatal massage techniques to ensure the safety of both mother and baby. Our pregnancy massages are designed to address common discomforts such as back pain, swelling, and fatigue while promoting relaxation. So yes, you can get a deep tissue massage when pregnant.

During a prenatal massage session at our clinic, we use modified techniques that avoid putting pressure on certain areas such as the abdomen and lower back which can cause stress on the uterus.

Our experienced staff will work carefully around these areas using gentle strokes along with firm pressure when needed or requested by the client, if we find it is safe to do so.
