Ans. There are a few situations in which massage may be risky. For example, you'll need to avoid massage in an area where you have a blood clot or a bone fracture.
You'd also want to avoid massage on any area where you have a skin injury or condition that could be aggravated by rubbing, including burns, open wounds, skin infections, or eczema. Finally, some people may have allergic reactions to oils used by massage therapists.

By the way, steer clear of hot tubs, saunas, and treatments such as hot wraps. These can make you overheat, which can cause problems for you and your baby.
Be aware that some massage therapists want clearance from your doctor or midwife before treating you, so ask ahead of time.
