+ Questions about: Massage
What are the conditions when I should refrain from getting a massage?
At Pia Esthetics Day Spa, we're all about ensuring your massage experience is not only blissful but also safe. While massages are a fantastic way to relax and rejuvenate, there are certain situations where it might be best to hit the pause button. Let's explore when you should consider rescheduling your pampering session:
1. Battling the Bugs:
- Cold or Flu: If you're sniffling, sneezing, or just feeling under the weather with a cold or flu, it's wise to reschedule. Massages boost circulation, which is great, but not when it could potentially spread an infection. Your well-being is our top priority, so we recommend waiting until you're feeling better.
2. Expecting a Bundle of Joy:
- Pregnancy: For all the amazing moms-to-be, we offer specialized massages that cater to your unique needs. Our therapists are trained to ensure you and your baby are comfortable and supported with pillows, and the massage is performed while you're cozily positioned on your side. However, it's always a good idea to consult with your healthcare provider before booking your session.
3. Navigating Health Challenges:
- Serious Health Conditions: For guests with significant health concerns like heart, kidney, or liver issues, or those undergoing cancer treatment, our standard massage therapies might not be the best fit. But don't worry, our therapists can guide you to specialists who are trained to handle these specific health conditions.
4. Medication Matters:
- Prescription Medication: If you're on any medication, especially those affecting blood pressure, please inform your therapist. And a heads-up: muscle relaxers and massages don't mix well. They can dull your sensitivity to pressure and might leave you feeling sore later.
5. Alcohol and Massage:
- Alcohol Consumption: Planning to have a drink? Save it for after your massage. Alcohol and massage can be an uncomfortable combo, as the increased circulation from the massage might intensify the effects of alcohol, leading to nausea.
Remember, your safety and comfort are our utmost concern at Pia Esthetics Day Spa. If you're unsure whether it's the right time for a massage, just give us a call. We're here to guide you to the best decision for your health and relaxation.
