Reproductive Conditions


Review of Mosby’s Pathology for Massage Therapists, by Salvo and Anderson.

In chapter 11, pathologies of the reproduction system, it gives descriptions about STD’s and the reproduction system such as menstruation, pregnancy, menopause. Massage doesn’t affect the reproduction system directly but it can be used to make PMS and other symptoms more comfortable. When a woman is pregnant, over 12 weeks along, it is best to lay on her side in a comfortable position and abdominal massage is contraindicated. Massage is also contraindicated in the first trimester if a woman has had a history of miscarriages.
