Why Prenatal Massage?
Multiple studies confirm that prenatal massage therapy during your pregnancy can help to reduce your anxiety and depression, soothe tired muscle and body aches, and improve labor outcomes for your newborn’s health. Scientifically, prenatal massage creates higher dopamine and serotonin levels while lowering levels of cortisol and norepinephrine (your stress hormones). You will find that it is easy to fall and stay asleep and your immune system will be strengthened.
Pregnancy changes your posture and puts stress on your back, legs, and feet. It can also weaken your core. All of these issues can be helped by massage therapy:
- Muscle Tension Fatigue
- Back and Neck Pain
- Leg Cramps
- Generalized Pain
- Restlessness and Sleep Issues
And the benefits don’t stop there. Studies show that women who have received regular prenatal massage have a greater chance of reduced pain perception during labor and delivery. They also tend to have shorter labors with a lessened chance of premature birth. Prenatal massage has been shown to improve your blood circulation and also strengthen and stimulate the lymph system, which increases your immunity and removal of toxins in your body.
As your baby grows, prenatal massage can help you maintain good posture and adjust to a changing alignment caused by the baby’s increasing weight. Massage increases your overall muscle tone. Your flexibility will also be improved which enhances your ability to carry the baby’s extra weight while also relieving aches and pains.
What to Expect
During the session, mom and baby are pampered together and enjoy the benefits of our certified massage therapist’s dedicated expertise.
