Thai pregnancy massage was developed in Thailand. This type of massage has a strong focus on relaxation. The massage is very similar to traditional Thai massage. It is performed on a mat on the floor and you are fully clothed. For most of the massage you will be seated, leaning against a cushion, or lying on your side surrounded by cushions.
