Benefits of Pregnancy Massage

Benefits of Pregnancy Massage:

Prenatal massage is a natural, touch therapy treatment which offers a wide range of benefits, aimed at alleviating these and other pregnancy related symptoms.

  • Eases backaches, headaches, shoulder and neck aches that may be caused by muscle tension and shifts in posture to accommodate increasing weight
  • Decreases pain in the pelvic/hip area
  • Increases circulation
  • Improves digestion
  • Reduces fatigue
  • Improves skin elasticity that can help reduce stretch marks
  • Helps reduce swelling in such places as hands and lower legs
  • Can alleviate the stress on weight-bearing joints, like the knees, which are impacted by the extra weight of a growing baby
  • Promotes relaxation and deep breathing
  • Helps stabilize hormone levels by lessening anxiety

Taking time for yourself during pregnancy can be uplifting emotionally. The soothing essence of massage allows pregnant moms to unwind and feel serene, healthy, and comforted during a period of added physical and emotional stress.

Some women also choose to incorporate elements of massage during childbirth to cope with delivery. Massage therapy can also be a therapeutic treatment after pregnancy as your body returns to its normal state, and you begin your exciting life with baby. New moms are also learning how to bring the benefits of touch therapy to their children through infant massage classes.
