Pregnancy Massage FAQ's
Do I have to lie on my stomach?
No - Kala Body does not make you lie on your stomach. We have an electric table that can be adjusted to help you on to the table. We also make sure that you lie on the side (safest for your growing womb) and well supported with expert cushioning. We can also educate you on the best position for sleeping to help prevent restless nights.
Are there differences between a standard massage and a pregnancy massage?
Yes - Our therapist has studied the best massage techniques as well as knowing all the acupressure points to avoid during pregnancy.
Are the massage oils you use safe?
Yes- we love the healing of oils. We only use special massage oils safe for each stage of pregnancy. We can also use plain coconut oil if you prefer.
All pregnancy massage oils made by Pregnancy Massage Australia.
When should I start getting a pregnancy massage?
You can begin at any time - we will do a full assessment when you come in. We will then customise your treatment based on the trimester and stage of pregnancy. We do recommend that you start as soon as possible to get the best possible outcome from your treatment.
Does health insurance cover pregnancy massage?
Yes- depending on your cover, you can have access to insurance rebates as we are a Remedial Massage Therapist who provides a full assessment. Please see your health care provider for their conditions.
There are some instances where we need a doctor’s release to permit you to get a massage. If you are suffering from any other following, please check in with your GP first and bring along a written letter of consent to your massage treatment.
