New moms and moms-to-be know that a massage has a dreamy appeal: the chance to make your body feel good again. To accommodate gravid tummies, Medical Massage has special tables built with a stretchy sling that supports the belly. The group’s therapists are trained to erase particular discomforts like lower-back pain, sciatica, and neck and shoulder tightness with their hybrid of Swedish and deep-tissue techniques. Just as important, they also know what not to do: potentially irritating oils and fragrant creams are verboten. Certain labor-inducing acupressure points are also strictly avoided. All that, and these people just plain know how to rub a person right.
