For this particular post, I sent out my associate Tauyna Blanco who happens to be 5 months pregnant (WHOOP!). Luckily I did not have to twist her arm to get her to agree to get a massage and give me her thoughts on the whole experience.  Here are her thoughts below. Tauyna visited the Massage Heights Cypress Towne Center Location located near Cypress,Texas.

My first impression upon entering Massage Heights was that is was very clean and calming atmosphere. The employee working the front desk was very helpful and knowledgeable. The bathroom was nice with clean plush hand towels and various lotions available for you to use.  My only wish was that there was a separate room for you to relax in while you wait for your appointment to begin. In this particular location you waited up front where people were coming in and out. Massage Height was very beautiful and well taken care of.

My masseuse was very pleasant and help make sure that I was comfortable being almost 5 month pregnant. The massage bed was very comfortable and I loved how the massage bed warmed up. The masseuse listened to where my problem areas were and she spent the time I asked on those problem areas.

I asked Tauyna what was the difference between a regular massage and a prenatal massage for her and she said, “Really the only thing different is you don’t lay on your back. You lay on your side with a body pillow and on your back. They still can focus your problems areas, but its modified. It helps with swelling and helps with back pain, sadly its only last for a couple of days. It did help with my headache I was having due to the pregnancy. With most of my massages relief only lasts about 2 days or so.”

 

I am sure with all massages, results may vary since each person is different in their needs and even their body types. Make sure you talk with your doctor before you receive a massage.

 

When I asked Tauyna if she would visit Massage Heights again whether it be for a prenatal, postnatal, or regular massage her response was ” Most Definitely!”
