Pregnancy Massage

 

pregnancy-massage-therapyPregnancy massage – The therapeutic benefits of massage for pregnant women are vast. There’s evidence that massage may help people who suffer from low back pain and possibly those with chronic headaches would benefit during pregnancy. Massage may decrease stress and promote relaxation, helping you cope with discomfort even if it doesn’t prevent it.

Carrying a baby you changes your centre of gravity and puts a great deal of stress on your back, neck, abdominal muscles, and shoulders

Pregnancy also relaxes your ligaments, so that your pelvic joints are less stable, and changes your posture, pulling your pelvis forward. Add to that the extra weight you’re carrying and you’ve got yourself an aching lower back.

Benefits of Pregnancy massage:

  • Reduces swelling in the hands, feet and ankles
  • Reduces sciatic pain
  • Eases muscular discomforts in areas like the lower back & neck
  • It helps with muscle tension & tightening that can be experienced throughout the body during pregnancy
  • Tones & relaxes muscles and can help increase flexibility.
  • Increases blood and lymph flow which can help increase the elimination of toxins through the circulatory and lymphatic systems, this can also help with fatigue
  • Increases oxygen in the blood, sometimes on up to 10-15% after a massage
  • Strengthens the immune system
  • Stimulates the release of endorphins, the body’s natural pain killers, into the brain and nervous system
  • Helps relieve anxiety or depression
  • Helps increase blood circulation, which in turn delivers more oxygen and nutrients to the mother and baby
