Massage makes Pregnancy Perfect

Pregnancy massage treatments significantly improve the health and wellbeing of both the mother and her unborn child. Scientist evidence lists many benefits to regular massage in pregnancy. Receiving specialist massage treatments during your pregnancy improves physical and mental health like this:

1) Pregnancy massage reduces anxiety and depression which cause stress triggering hormones and other chemicals which adversely affect the health of internal organs and can impact on pregnancy .

2) Pregnancy massage relieves muscle aches and joint pains. Carrying extra weight and sleeping in awkward positions creates pain. Massage in pregnancy will relax muscle tension and improve lymphatic and blood circulation by applying mild pressure to the muscle groups of the body.

3)Hormones can become unbalanced in pregnancy affecting health and mood. Scientists have found that pregnancy massage received bi-weekly  for only five weeks leads to fewer hormones such as norepinephrine and cortisol (hormones associated with stress) and dopamine and serotonin goes up  -low levels of these hormones are associated with anxiety and depression . Rebalancing hormones means fewer complications during birth and fewer instances of newborn complications, such as low birth

4) Massage during pregnancy reduces swelling .It manipulates soft tissues to reducing fluids in swollen joints. This also improves the removal of tissue waste carried by the body’s lymph system.

5) Pregnancy Massage reduces sciatic pain caused by the  pressure of the uterus spreading tension to the muscles of the upper and lower leg, causing them to swell and put pressure on nearby nerves. Pregnancy Massage therapy releases this tension on. Pregnancy massage clients have experienced a significant reduction in sciatic nerve pain during pregnancy through massage.
