Having a Baby? Discover Proven Benefits of Prenatal Massage
Massage during pregnancy is a healthy way to reduce stress and promote overall wellness, studies show. One of the most beneficial times for massage may be during pregnancy.
The physical changes that accompany pregnancy can have a significant impact on an expectant mother. If you're looking for ways to improve comfort, consider this - a study at the University Of Miami School Of Medicine suggests that prenatal massage therapy may have multiple positive effects that include:
- Lowered anxiety
- Decreased back and leg pain
- Improved sleep
- Reduced joint pain
- Reduced pain associated with sciatica
- Decreased levels of norepinephrine and cortisol (stress hormones)
- Improved circulation
- Stimulate release of serotonin and dopamine (hormones of well-being)
- Promote relaxation
Each pregnancy is unique; each massage is customized to fit the needs of the mom-to-be.
Our prenatal massage clients experience relief from many of the normal discomforts experienced during pregnancy. We help them alleviate low back pain, headaches and sinus congestion.
Either 1/2 hour or 1 hour in length, a prenatal massage is an experience proven to maintain wellness during pregnancy.
