Problems Laying Flat During a Massage

I need some suggestions. When I get a massage I have trouble staying on my stomach for a long time because I have large breasts. Does anyone know a way to alleviate all that pressure on my breast while getting a massage?

I had my first massage this summer while on vacation. I have the same problem. My massage therapist placed a small pillow under me below my breasts (on the ribs between breast and waistline) this made a HUGH difference!!

I am a massage therapist, so here are a few tips, your therapist should be able to work you when you're positioned slightly on your side or if your massage therapist has pregnancy pads, try those.

Above all, talk to your therapist about your discomfort, if they are unwilling or not knowledgable about helping your discomfort, find a new therapist.

Good Luck.

I'm not that large-breasted and I was uncomfortable too. Breasts are not meant to be squished like that! For me what helped was a small rolled-up towel placed vertically on my sternum between my breasts. Good luck, and I know how massage therapy can help.

Hi I have exactly your problem and what I do is put one hand over the other and then rest my chin on them.

This way I'm elevated chin upwards and the whole weight is not taken by my breasts. Try it and you'll want the massage to go on.
