The doula center I went to for my massage was pure stereotype: Plinky-plunky music, beads in the doorways, and the faint scent of "essential oils," the massage therapist was like a real life version of Phoebe Buffay. As much as I had to smirk and the hippie-ness of it all, it really was a great experience.
The therapist was super friendly and took the time to talk with me for a few moments before the massage to discuss my pregnancy, and her massage was a great, relaxing experience. I didn't even find the accupressure to be all that uncomfortable. Granted, it was a bit tender getting squeezed on those pressure points, but I didn't think it was painful.
Afterward, she told me that I "just need to relax," so that's what I'm trying to do -- deep breaths, relax my shoulders, be patient --- ommmmmmm...We'll see what comes.
