Reproductive Conditions


If I have a pregnant client I need to know the number of weeks pregnant, has she miscarried. A massage is contraindicated in the first trimester AND if the client has had spontaneous abortions. If a massage is given the client must be worked on side-line or in an elevated supine position. Due to high risk of blood clots only gentle pressure in the medial thigh area is indicated. That was valuable to me as I believed no massage should be given to the thigh area. If the clients feet or ankles are swollen the feet must be HIGHER than the knees. Could be difficult if the spa, office you are working in does not have enough support pillows!
