massage chairs

am going to have a pedicure for my birthday and the salon has a massage chair that does your back while you have the pedicure. Do you think it's safe to use in pregnancy?

  • The salon should be well aware of their health and safety rules regards the massage chair. I'd give them a phone and double check - also check with mw/gp. I'd be very dubious if you could use it. I had severe back problems throughout this pregnancy and was not allowed to use any form of electrical/mechanical massger. Also, I tried to get booked in for a back massege where I normaly get my waxing done and they said that only those qualified in pregnancy massage can do it and wouldnt take me. Tried local chiropractors and even they wouldnt touch me!!! Be very careful.
  • Hi no yu wouldnt be able to use the massage chair, when the chair is brought it does state this. I am sure the therapist would not allow you to sit on it but not have the massage going...
    good luck and enjoy your pedicure x
  • Check with your mw. you can get massage while pregnant - i've been for one but it was with a properly qualified person and specifically for pregnancy - I'd be wary of the massage chairs to be honest - i've used them before and they can be a little rough
  • thats why I said massage charis are not suitable... I am a therapist and have trained with a pregnant lady and massage chairs.. on separate occasions and the label on the box said not suitable for pregnant ladies x

  • Oh dear poor you image
    Hope your evening improved..

    I've only ever used the massage chairs in service stations and there is no box to check instructions...they were great for my back when I was travelling for 4 1/2 hours to see hubby last year before he moved up here but now I'll stick to my massage woman cause she's good! Last year in America I had this aqua massage thing that was really freaky but cool...its like a big tube thing you lie in and they shut the lid over you and it has jets of water insidea plastic cover and it just goes up and down your body! Tickles your feet - I jumped a mile when it started!
  • LOL... aout the aqua system... it is nice when you find a good therapist and also nice during pregnancy to have a massage... I will be treating myself to indian head soon as the salon I am self employed in does not have a massage chair and with a bump its not comfy to lay on it (unless I am asleep!), think I will also be having a pedicure soon as wel as a treat and nearer the time of due date I am going to start having reflexology as this can help start labour. I had a client who came in and that night she went into labour! (liitle advice for all those wanting a treat and natural induction)
  • I want to buy a massage chair but dont know which one I need to buy for my grand parents.

  • Massage chair is really important for a pargnent one.

  • Many of the risks of prenatal chair massages are the same as the risks associated with other types of pregnancy massages.

  • You shouldn't use massage chairs if you are pregnant and here's why!  You have pressure points on your back that could trigger labor contractions and the heat will cause your baby's heart rate to increase!
