Camelot Spa is an award winning luxury spa located at The Grand Palm Hotel/Resort, a cool cosmopolitan space to unwind and recharge. But the news worthiest part is that one of their therapists, Charity, offers the most amazing pregnancy massage in Gaborone.
When having a pregnancy massage, it’s important to make sure that your therapist is properly trained to avoid any risk to the baby or mother-to-be. You should have a general consult with the therapist before hand to ensure she knows your medical background and to ensure that there’s no complications to the pregnancy taking place. Whilst doing the massage there are specific areas that should not be covered because they could risk a miscarriage. For example to find out if the client is having any bleeding because if so they shouldn’t have a massage. The most important thing is to know where to massage. Even a foot massage must be different during pregnancy to ensure that reflexology points aren’t used.
There are specific oils that pregnant women can’t have used as they could induce early labour; again a quality therapist like Charity will know this. And there’s also certain positions in which a pregnant women can lie.
Its very important for pregnant women to have massage. It’s good for circulation taking blood to the baby, it’ll help avoid swollen lymphs which can lead to leg swelling. In addition it helps against muscle strain to the back. With suitable oils the added hydration that a massage will bring will help the skin return to its normal elasticity after pregnancy.
