I have googled the subject and I come up with two very different responses. I usually get deep tissue but right now all I want is a massage in my shoulders, neck/head and my arms/hands. Is that possible? As you all know, I am having for now terrible MS so I wonder if it is actually going to make it worse instead of helping me. Also, I don't think I am fully dehydrated but I must be close. It is impossible that my water intake is larger than what I puke and spit every other hour. To be honest, water sometimes makes me gag or get terrible heartburn...crazy I know! Can't wait for this MS to be over!
Im not sure, I was getting them at like 5 and 6 weeks, then my massage therapist said he really shouldn't be doing them until after first trimeseter. So I guess Im going to start up again next week. If you find any good concrete info, let me know!
I'm pretty sure they are as long as they know you're pregnant and are not putting pressure in certain spots. A place near me does prenatal ones and I so need to book another. I hope you feel better soon!
I would think they are safe, but you could always call somewhere that does prenatal massages and ask. Or even your OB! With my last pregnancy I had horrible back pain and some numbness in my leg and my OB prescribed massages for me so DH's benefits fully covered them, but I think I was in 2nd or 3rd tri when I got it done.
Yes they are safe. I've been getting them along from my mom who is a massage therapist. During the first trimester she only did my shoulders/neck and didn't go near by lower back or stomach. Now that I'm in the second she's back to doing full body massages just not real deep still on my back.
Definitely safe and very beneficial for most pregnant women. They helped with hip and back pain during my first pregnancy and I plan to get them again this pregnancy. Just make sure you are getting the massage from someone that is certified in pregnancy massage. Enjoy!
I called my Massage Therapist who happens to be my best friend. She is coming over in about half an hour. She will bring her chair as I think it will be more comfortable for me because of my MS. She will be doing neck and shoulders only. She can't do much more until I am farther along in my pregnancy but she promised me to do as much as she can. I can't wait!!!
