How can a Prenatal Massage help you?
Massage offers a safe, natural, and drug-free choice for pain relief – especially since doctors often recommend against taking medications in consideration for the unborn child.
A regular regimen of massage therapy promotes overall well-being and can help eliminate the painful aspects of pregnancy. By reducing stress on load-bearing joints caused by the added weight of the baby, massage can foster the flow of blood and lymphatic fluid. In turn, it eliminates toxins from the body and helps to loosen tense muscles.
Moreover, massage can alleviate stress-forming anxiety by focusing on trigger points. There are numerous benefits associated to the elimination of stress, including helping to stave-off hormonally-induced depression.
Massage can also be used to treat sleep difficulties due to pain or discomfort. Some techniques utilize essential oils and peaceful music – the combination of soothing scents and sounds with the deep kneading of a good massage can be an excellent formula for deep sleep. Plus, massages stimulate the release of endorphins and serotonin in your body, all natural chemicals which counter pain and can help drop you into a deep sleep.
Lastly, massage can help eliminate and prevent chronic injuries or aches caused by improper posture and changes in alignment caused by increasing weight. Massage increases muscle tone and flexibility, enhancing the ability to carry this extra weight while also relieving aches and pains, leg cramps, and muscle spasms.
