Spa Treatments During Pregnancy
Today, it is unusual to find a spa that doesn’t have services geared toward the needs of the expectant mom. Looking at the ever-growing number of women becoming pregnant, and the expanding age range in which woman are having children, it’s understandable.
With more than 4 million U.S. births every year, there are plenty of mommy clients desiring a prenatal or postnatal massage by someone who understands their particular bodywork needs.
Massage therapists have long catered to the pregnant client, pregnancy spa treatments helping her relax, renew, and even physically prepare for the strenuous birth date. As a therapist, I always enjoy taking care of my mommies to be. Many of them I have taken through several pregnancies. When I finally meet the baby, somehow they always seem to know me and we have a special bond. Some of them are now pre teens, and definitely hold a special place in my heart.
Now, spas are picking up the pregnancy pace as this unique client is walking through their doors seeking respite more than ever before. Here are some pointers for Pregnancy and the spa and a look at what is new.
Pregnancy and Spa Treatments – What’s Safe?
Pregnancy is a great time to be pampered. You surely deserve it even more than you do usually. You need it more than you do usually. And people are more likely to buy you spa-related treats than they do usually.
But you have to be careful. Some products, treatments and techniques are not recommended for you and your baby, and you need to be confident about what you’re having.
These days, most spas are clued in and offer treatments specifically for pregnant women, and these get more imaginative all the time.
Choose a spa and therapist you trust if you can, preferably one that comes with a recommendation. Even then, however, it’s worth bearing a few things in mind so you know what to watch out for.
