What Are the Benefits of Pregnancy Massage?
Pregnancy massage is an adapted treatment for the comfort of the client’s growing tummy and physiological changes, i.e. heartburn, sciatica, pelvic discomfort, nasal congestion and upper and lower back tension. The aim is to relief possible side effects that occur during pregnancy, such as anxiety, swelling in the feet, ankles and hands, sickness and nausea, and tension in the back and hips. Pregnancy massage also releases the “feel good” hormones such as oxytocin, dopamine and serotonin, whilst decreasing the release of stress hormones leaving you both relaxed and stress-free. Constant stress can cause long-term problems for you and the baby, making pregnancy massage an important part of your pregnancy journey. Having a massage is a great way to cope with stress. Following the birth, massage treatments can assist the body to re-balance and encourage a natural and rapid recovery in the form of post-natal massage.
