What is Prenatal Massage?
Pregnancy massage, or prenatal massage, and unlike a deep tissue massage, is a massage technique specific for moms to be. Very special care is taken when giving a prenatal massage and only Licensed Massage Therapists with the proper training are able to offer them.
Why is it important?
As you may or may not know, there is a lot of added stress when pregnant. Not to mention all the extra aches, pains, emotional & physical changes happening.
A prenatal massage may help alleviate many of these symptoms plus more! Past surveys & studies have shown prenatal massage can help reduce anxiety, decrease symptoms of depression, relieve muscle aches, relieve joint pains, and improve labor outcome. Prenatal massage may also lead to mood regulation and improved cardiovascular health.
Edema, or swelling of the joints during pregnancy, is often caused by reduced circulation and increased pressure on the major blood vessels by the heavy uterus. Massage helps to stimulate soft tissues to reduce the collection of fluids in swollen joints. This also improves the removal of tissue waste carried by the body’s lymph system.
