Healing Arts Pregnancy Guidelines


Healing Arts Modalities for Pregnancy

While Kripalu is closed for the remainder of 2020, we are not booking onsite Healing Arts Services

Healing Arts is pleased to offer a variety of sessions for our pregnant guests. All Kripalu Consultations and Energy Work sessions are available. For bodywork sessions, the Healing Arts Department has worked in close consultation with a pregnancy massage specialist, as well as experts in each of the modalities, to create clear guidelines for establishing consistently safe, effective, nurturing sessions to our pregnant guests. Our guidelines are conservative in order to provide the greatest security possible for guests and practitioners. Some modalities are only appropriate during certain stages of pregnancy, due to the techniques, products, or body positioning involved. All therapists who offer pregnancy modalities have taken the Healing Arts Pregnancy Massage training in addition to specialized training in each modality.

For everyone’s safety, comfort, and well-being, it is crucial that guests and advisors adhere to the established guidelines when selecting and booking sessions. 

The following services are available to pregnant women:

  • Pregnancy Massage
  • Pregnancy Massage with Essential Oils
  • Shirodhara (first trimester only)
