Pregnancy can cause a variety of aches and pains, including back pain, joint pain and muscle tension. A prenatal massage can help to alleviate these discomforts by relaxing muscles and reducing any tension.
Whilst pregnancy is stressful on your body, it can also be quite stressful on your mind. Massage therapy can promote relaxation and reduce stress. It can also cause you to release endorphins, which are natural mood lifters.
Many pregnant women struggle with disrupted sleep patterns during pregnancy. Massage therapy can help to alleviate symptoms of insomnia or other discomforts.
Edema (swelling) is very common during pregnancy (particular in the legs and feet during the later trimesters). Massages can improve circulation during this time and reduce swelling.
Prenatal massages can help regulate hormonal changes that occur during pregnancy. It may help to reduce the production of stress hormones such as cortisol and increase good hormones such as serotonin and dopamine.
Some pregnant women experience sciatic nerve pain, which can be excruciating. Massage therapy can help to alleviate this pain by releasing pressure on the sciatic nerve.
