Is Massage safe during pregnancy?
All oils used during treatments on pregnant ladies are essential oil free and safe. Our base oil is either a cold pressed extra virgin olive oil or grape seed oil. Swedish massage is the preferred massage method during pregnancy as it addresses many of the common discomforts one may experience at this time. However, as with any holistic approach to pregnancy you should consult your GP.
If in your first trimester (first 12 weeks of pregnancy), we recommend that you discuss your treatment options with your GP before finalizing your booking with Indigo Fields. The following conditions during any stage of pregnancy are of concern and it is strongly recommended that you obtain your GP’S consent:
- High risk pregnancy
- Previous pre-term labour
- High blood pressure
- Severe swelling
Please note: Your booking with Indigo Fields confirms that you have satisfied any concerns with regard to the treatments booked and that you have your GP’s consent.
