Massage during pregnancy is beneficial in reducing stress and promoting general well-being. It stimulates the lymphatic system, removes excess toxins and strengthens the immune system. It stabilizes hormonal levels, as hormonal changes can cause depression and anxiety during pregnancy, which is why many expecting mothers find relief with a Prenatal Massage.
Many benefits of massage include the relief of normal discomforts experienced during pregnancy, such as backaches, hip aches, stiff neck, leg cramps, headaches, joint pain, and edema. In addition, by relaxing nervous tension, you can experience a better night's sleep.
It also helps prepare the expectant mother for labor by increasing the flexibility of the ligaments, tendons and joints while supporting your body awareness. Your baby feels what you feel and shares your experience of the pregnancy.
Special bolstering is used to ensure your comfort & safety while the massage is accustomed to your special needs, to promote relaxation and relief from aching muscles.
When to Avoid Prenatal Massage
Women with normal and low-risk pregnancies can benefit greatly from massage. However, women in high-risk pregnancies should consult with their doctor before receiving massages. If at any time during the massage you experience discomfort, please let me know immediately.
