There is no better time to pamper yourself than when you are expecting. Not only can a day at the spa leave you feeling relaxed and refreshed, it can also help to soothe away pregnancy aches and pains. Here are a few spa treatments that you can request to help you feel your very best during your pregnancy and beyond.
Prenatal massage can have a multitude of health benefits. Massage therapy can help to lower anxiety, improve your sleep, and decrease back and leg pain. In particular, reflexology, or the practice of applying pressure to specific areas of the body, can be very soothing to swollen legs or feet. When scheduling an appointment, be sure to choose a therapist well versed in prenatal massage and ask that unscented lotion or oil be used, as some forms of aromatherapy can stimulate uterine contractions.
Foot and Scalp Therapy
Like it or not, our feet suffer a bit of wear and tear during pregnancy. Ease aching toes and find some release with a relaxing foot treatment. Let an experienced technician wrap your feet in a warm compress, stimulate blood flow with a rejuvenating foot scrub, and massage away any tension. Prenatal foot therapy can also help to restore balance.
Supplemental oxygen has many benefits, including enhanced muscle energy, better absorption of vitamin and minerals, and improved circulation within the skin. Perfect for use two to three days before a special event, such as a baby shower or other celebration, an oxygenation treatment can draw oxygen to the skin and create a radiant and healthy glow. Results can last up to ten days and can promote the healing and rejuvenation of stressed skin.
