Pregnancy Massage

 

Pregnant_Lady_1As you embark on one of life’s most profound journeys, you may

sometimes feel as though your body is out of control as your baby develops; placing all manner of stresses and strains on your physical and even your mental well-being.

Regular massage during pregnancy is a proven method to help with the emotional and physical preparation for giving birth, as well as addressing ailments such as achy hips, backache, muscle tension and fluid retention. It eases bodily pains, tiredness, constipation and fluid retention helping you to relax and better enjoy this special time.

Benefits of pregnancy massage:

  • Eases pelvic/hip pain, backaches, headaches, shoulder and neck aches that may be caused by muscle tension and shifts in posture to accommodate increasing weight
  • Increases circulation, improves digestion
  • Reduces fatigue and promotes relaxation and deep breathing
  • Improves skin elasticity that can help reduce post-birthing 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
  • Helps stabilize hormone levels by lessening anxiety

Pregnancy_MassageStudies have shown:

Mothers who receive massage during pregnancy are more likely to give their babies massages, thereby nurturing their bond and promoting the child’s development. Babies born from less-stressed mothers are calmer, less fussy and perform better on infant development.

Why not massage your baby :
