A: Utah requires that massage therapists in Salt Lake City must be licensed in order to perform massage therapy. Licensing is the strictest form of regulation for the massage therapy profession, requiring that a person complete specific educational courses through an accredited program, and a certain number of training hours. It is more advanced than a massage certificate.
A: It is generally safe for a woman to get a massage when she is pregnant, but there are some important things to know before you decide if it’s best for you. In general, massage is useful for improving overall health, reducing stress, and relieving tension or aches and pains that come with pregnancy. It may also help regulate hormones, reduce swelling (edema) in the joints, and reduce sciatic nerve pain common during pregnancy. However, not all massage therapists specialize in prenatal massage, so it’s important to find a therapist who is certified in this area.
Due to the heightened risk of miscarriage in the first 12 weeks of pregnancy, some massage therapists will not perform massages during the first trimester. Women who have other high-risk pregnancy conditions, such as hypertension, preeclampsia, history of pre-term labor, severe swelling, or severe headaches should talk to an OB/GYN or family doctor before you receive a massage to discuss the risks and determine if it’s right for you.
