Prenatal Massage in Southfield, MI

At The Root of Wellness, our massage therapists are professionally trained in Prenatal Massages. Having a prenatal massage can be very beneficial throughout the entire nine months of the pregnancy; however, if you are having a high risk pregnancy it is best to discuss your condition with your midwife or physician before seeking a therapist.
