tanning when pregnant


Every pregnancy is different, and therefore consulting your GP is the best place to start when it comes to indoor tanning during pregnancy.  At this time there are no studies on the effects of using sunbeds during pregnancy, but because the UV light used in sunbeds does not reach the child, your baby is not at risk.  However, during the first trimester your doctor will most likely advise you not to do anything that will raise your body’s temperature, so it may be best to avoid indoor tanning during this period.  It is also important to consider that that your skin during pregnancy is more sensitive to burning, and therefore the use of sunbeds should be more carefully monitored.

Indoor tanning lotions

Why should I only buy indoor tanning lotions from my salon

Unauthorized outlets like discount websites, local flea markets or non-tanning outlets run the risk of provided you with a product you cannot trust.  Therefore these wouldn’t necessarily have the ingredients previously discussed to ensure that your tan lasts as long as possible and wouldn’t have the same moisturising qualities necessary for keeping skin in perfect condition to ensure an even and glowing tan.  Please ask a member of our team for more information about the tanning lotions we use here at Tanners Lane, and we’ll be happy to advise you on what would suit you best.

Deep tissue massage

Deep tissue massage is primarily used as a morality to reduce chronic (long term) aches, pains and tightness in areas such as the neck, shoulders, and legs and lower back. Deep tissue massage is a form of therapeutic massage that aims on manipulating deeper layers of connective and muscular tissues.

Deep Tissue Massage strokes are applied using direct pressure with knuckles, forearms, fingers, and elbows for penetration of the tissues deeper in. Friction applied across the grain of the muscles breaks the tension points and knots down.

Deep tissue massage works by breaking down adhesion’s (knots or areas of rigid tissue) by using deep pressure to restore normal range of motion and relieve pain. Adhesion’s potentially cause pain, limited motion and inflammation by blocking circulation.

Deep tissue massage is commonly used to treat:

  • Limited movement
  • Stress relief
  • Release tension reducing headaches
  • Repetitive strain injury
  • Postural problems
  • Post-event (after marathons, sporting events)
  • Long term aches
  • Lower back pain
  • Muscle tension and spasms
  • After a gym session

Deep tissue massage can be combined with sports massage to improve rate of recovery and normal function as part of a rehabilitation programme.

We use Deep tissue massage to ease stress, reduce muscle spasms, discomfort and pain by manipulating the soft tissue. This also releases toxins from the muscles, allowing the blood andbeauty salon oxygen to flow properly. With increased blood flow we also speed recovery as oxygen delivery is increased to the muscles and targeted areas of pain.

You may feel soreness after the massage, but this will ease the following day and you will be left feeling relaxed and a lot more mobile!
