Some minor modifications to your massage routine may be necessary for both comfort and safety reasons once pregnancy tests positive.
A more pregnancy-friendly massage position. Early on in pregnancy, you’ll want to avoid putting a lot of weight on tender breasts. Then, as your pregnancy progresses, you’ll need to work around your growing belly. After the fifth month, you’ll need to avoid lying flat on your back because that position can lead to extreme dizziness, even fainting. While the side-lying position is a perennial favorite with moms-to-be.
Less vigorous massage strokes. Deep massage work, particularly on the legs is a definite no for pregnant women. Pregnant women are highly prone to varicose veins and a vigorous leg massage could cause a blood clot in the leg to become dislodged, potentially harmful during pregnancy. Fortunately, massage doesn’t have to be vigorous to be effective, your massage therapist’s less vigorous massage strokes will still help you to do battle with leg cramps, headaches, fluid retention, swollen ankles, and other pregnancy-related aches and pains.
Pregnant women should avoid some essential oils and anything that could raise body temperature, such as body wraps, saunas/steam baths and Jacuzzis.
