PRE-NATAL MASSAGE AND PREGNANCY MASSAGE
BENEFITS OF PRE-NATAL MASSAGE
Relieves the everyday discomforts of pregnancy such as an aching neck, sore back and ribs, leg cramps, swelling of the ankles and feet and oedema (fluid retention). This leads to muscle relaxation and relief of joint pain. Pre-natal massage can be particularly helpful for women who experience numbness and/or tingling in extremities, conditions such as sciatica and has been proven to reduce stress hormones within a pregnant woman's body. It also increases the levels of hormones which tend to be low in women who are depressed. This is why post-natal massage also helps with post-partum depression. Pre-natal massage may improve the progression of labour with better health outcomes for both the mother and her baby. More relaxed mothers tend to have a lower risk of interventions during labour and birth. Pregnant women often find a massage rejuvenates their energy because it gives them an opportunity to rest and completely relax. It can help improve sleep due to feeling less muscle tension and generally less uncomfortable.
