Prenatal Massage Promotes Health of Mom-to-be & Baby!
Pregnancy (Prenatal) Massage is a wonderful way to maintain physical, mental, and emotional balance and wellness during this amazing time. Regular pregnancy massage addresses the unique stresses of pregnancy - such as mid and low back pain, headaches, insomnia, sciatic pain, swelling, or nausea.
Prenatal massage increases circulation and helps mom’s body handle it’s daily changes - and challenges. As baby grows and mom’s body changes, her center of gravity is affected constantly, which in turn taxes her body to continually modify and compensate in how it functions and moves. Muscles and joints can be achy, tight, or tender, varicose veins and swollen ankles can emerge, and hips can get achy throughout the course of pregnancy. Massage offers an incredibly enjoyable way to address these issues.
Mental and emotional stress are also a factor in pregnancy, as mom deals with natural apprehensions of motherhood, hormonal changes, a rapidly changing body, work/life balance concerns, and more. Massage is generally recognized as a great way to lower stress response hormones and induce a state of relaxation and a heightened sense of well-being. Bringing mom – and baby along with her – into a more relaxed state of mind and body is extremely beneficial. Receiving massage regularly helps maintain and build on those benefits with each session.
Receiving regular prenatal treatments is highly recommended by most obstetricians and midwives and studies have proved it to provide additional benefits such as:
- better self/body image
- healthier babies
- shorter labors (yea!)
- quicker labor recovery
- happier, healthier moms!
