Pregnancy is a very exciting and sometimes challenging time for women.  It creates many physical and emotional changes, so adapting nurturing touch and massage for Mother-to-be instils a sense of connectedness to her unborn child, and a heightened sense of self awareness.

Pregnancy massage is a perfect way to reduce stress while promoting general wellbeing.

Other benefits include:

  • Massage helps to soothe and relax nervous tension, which will help you sleep more easily and deeply. Incidentally, Doctors all agree that a relaxed Mother will have a happier, healthier pregnancy and possibly an easier childbirth experience.
  • It relaxes tense muscles and tones loose muscles, and can also increase muscle flexibility. Flexibility will be most helpful during the last trimester, and the birth itself.
  • Massage increases local and general blood circulation, which brings more oxygen and nutrients to the cells of both the Mother and foetus. This means greater vitality and less fatigue for Mother and better nourishment for her baby.
  • Massage can help relieve depression or anxiety caused by hormonal changes. It stimulates glandular secretions within the body which helps stabilize hormone levels.
  • It helps carry away the lactic acid and other cellular waste that builds up, so helps relieve muscular fatigue, cramping, tightness, stiffness and tension.
  • By aiding in circulation, massage eases the load on the Mother’s heart, and helps to keep her blood pressure in check.
  • Massage relieves many of the normal discomforts during pregnancy such as backaches, stiff neck, leg cramps, headaches, oedema, and sore swollen ankles and feet.

 

You can rest assured that while your own body is cared for, the health and wellbeing of your child is also of utmost

importance.
