Pregnant Women Should Consult Doctor About Massage

Posted on: December 28, 2010

Therapeutic massage isn’t appropriate for some people.  Folks who have a rash, open wounds, or an infectious skin condition as well as people with heart disease should always check with their physician before getting into a massage chair.  Also, if you have recently had surgery or undergone radiation or chemotherapy, definitely consult your doctor before starting any massage therapy.  Although there are massage techniques specifically for pregnant women, it is best to talk to your doctor first and make sure that you find a massage therapist who has been specifically trained to do pregnancy massages.  Many pregnant women actually report a variety of health benefits from massage during pregnancy.
