Although pregnancy leaves many radiating from head to toe, the extra weight can be taxing on muscles and bones, leaving some with a sore back and shoulders that would benefit hugely from massage. Of course, there are many warnings concerning SPA treatments during pregnancy, and expectant mothers should certainly avoid heat treatments such as saunas, steam rooms, tanning beds, and hot tubs. Those who make sure they visit a SPA that offers special prenatal massage from practitioners who know which essential oils are suitable for pregnant women's sensitive skin are however sure to benefit from the range of soothing and pain-relieving massages on offer.
