Application of various massage therapies, typically delivered while client is on their side, to help relieve the normal discomforts of pregnancy including back pain, leg cramps, swelling, stiff neck and overall stress. Result is relaxation and less pain, which can aid in better sleep and lowered anxiety.
Pregnancy can cause a lot of stress on the body and mind. With changes in weight and posture, discomfort during pregnancy is common, and even expected. However, that doesn’t mean there aren’t ways to ease those aches and pains. One wonderful treatment for physical and mental stress and pain is a prenatal massage.
Prenatal massages are adapted from other types of massage, so they are safe for the pregnant client. Certain areas of the body are avoided to minimize discomfort or other complications. While many massages take place on the stomach or back, prenatal massages are administered while the client is on their side.
Studies have shown that stress and relaxation hormones are significantly impacted when massage therapy is part of regular prenatal care. Cardiovascular health and mood regulation improve, and stress hormones decrease. These changes in hormone levels led to fewer complications during birth, as well as both maternal and newborn health benefits.
Sciatic nerve pain and swelling are reduced, as is anxiety and symptoms of depression. Other benefits may include easing of stiffness and pain in the neck and back, and overall relaxation that can lead to better sleep.
