01.04.2024

Due to various discomforts such as swollen feet, back pain and itchy skin, many expectant mothers often dream of at least one day at the SPA. While one might wonder about the safety of SPA programs for pregnant women, the good news is that most of them are completely safe and can provide enormous relief and relaxation.

Indeed, pregnancy SPA can be a great method to enjoy a moment of relaxation and relieve stress. However, before booking a massage, it is important to consult with your doctor to ensure that the treatments you choose are safe for your health.

SPA treatments are allowed for pregnant women if they are performed by qualified specialists and take into account the specific conditions of the pregnant woman. Some of them, such as pregnancy-specific hand therapy or hydrotherapy, can help relieve tension and discomfort associated with pregnancy.

Aromatherapy can also be safe and effective for pregnant women as part of a SPA treatment. Essential oils such as lavender or chamomile can help to relax and reduce stress, as well as relieve some of the common discomforts associated with pregnancy. If you are interested in aromatherapy in SPA: how essential oils contribute to relaxation and wellness, more detailed information can be found on the website of the Royal Thai Spa beauty center, where all procedures are described.

Which SPA treatments are allowed to pregnant women: recommendations and features

Conducting SPA programs for pregnant women is possible if they are performed by experienced specialists, taking into account all the health characteristics of the expectant mother. These programs are aimed at mitigating the main discomforts that expectant mothers face with:

  • combating fatigue and leg swelling - includes a relaxing massage aimed at improving blood circulation and relieving tension;
  • skin moisturizing and nourishing - peeling is used here to carefully remove dead cells and renew the skin;
  • prevention of stretch marks - includes special massage techniques aimed at increasing skin elasticity;
  • reducing stress and anxiety - creating a relaxing atmosphere in the SPA center, promoting a feeling of calm and tranquility.

SPA for pregnant women: what is allowed? It is recommended to choose:

  • water procedures: for example, swimming in the pool, water aerobics, hydromassage, which help maintain good physical shape and relieve stress from the spine;
  • professional cold wraps - wraps with seaweed, wraps with clay and fruit extracts help remove excess fluid and improve skin tone;
  • SPA facial care - cleansing, toning, moisturizing and nourishing - these are excellent methods of saturating the skin with vitamins and microelements.

In addition, it is also recommended to massage the legs to relieve swelling, pain and fatigue. It is also important to pay attention to hand skin care, including gentle massage and the use of paraffin therapy to moisturize and relieve tension. No less significant will be a careful and gentle massage of the back and lower back, with the help of only gentle movements and light pressure.

SPA treatments during pregnancy: what is not recommended during the procedures for safety and comfort

Expectant mothers should listen to some general advice:

  • avoid high temperatures - saunas and steam baths can have a negative affect on the fetus development;
  • be careful with anti-cellulite procedures - some methods, such as ultrasound, vacuum or honey massage, may be unsafe for pregnant women;
  • use essential oils with caution - some strong-smelling oils may cause headaches, nausea, or allergic reactions;
  • avoid unpleasant sensations - in case of discomfort, pain or irritation, you should stop the procedure immediately.

It is important to choose the procedures taking into account the gestation period, well-being and medical recommendations. At the Royal Thai Spa SPA center, specialists have the appropriate education and experience, which guarantees safety for future mothers and their babies. The center also offers special SPA treatments for athletes: recovery and relaxation. These procedures are based on special massage techniques aimed at improving blood circulation and relieving inflammation.
