Natural Approach to Healing and Relief

The primary advantage of prenatal massage is that it can help to ease the discomforts that are so common during pregnancy. The techniques used in prenatal massage are also said to help improve the overall health of both mother and baby.

A natural approach is best during pregnancy since the mother’s body is already working hard to support the new life growing inside of her. You also don’t want chemicals, drugs, or other harsh treatments near the developing baby.

Benefits of Prenatal Massage

Here are the benefits of prenatal massage:

Regulate Hormones

Prenatal massage can help to regulate hormones in the body, which can be beneficial for both mother and child. By reducing stress and anxiety, prenatal massage can help to keep hormone levels balanced. This can lead to fewer complications during pregnancy and a healthier overall experience.

During pregnancy, the hormone levels in a woman’s body can fluctuate widely. These fluctuations can lead to a variety of symptoms, including mood swings, fatigue, nausea, and headaches. Massage can help to reduce these symptoms by regulating hormone levels.

Alleviate Body Pains

Prenatal massage can alleviate body pains that are commonly experienced during pregnancy, such as back pain and neck pain. Lower back pain is particularly prevalent as mothers-to-be gain weight and their center of gravity shifts.

Our massage therapists are adept at finding and relieving these problem areas. In addition, they can provide you with information about how to take care of your body during pregnancy to minimize discomfort.

Improve Sleep

Hormone dysregulation and physical aches may interfere with your ability to get a good night’s sleep during pregnancy. Prenatal massage can help regulate hormones and relieve pain, leading to better sleep. Thus, prenatal massage can be a key part of your self-care routine during pregnancy.

Decrease Preterm Birth Risks

One of the most common benefits of prenatal massage is a decrease in the risk of preterm labor and birth. Studies have shown that regular massage can help to reduce stress levels, improve circulation, and increase the production of oxytocin (a hormone that helps to contract the uterus).

Relieve Swelling

Prenatal massage can help to reduce the swelling in your extremities that can be caused by pregnancy. By increasing the circulation in your body, prenatal massage helps to reduce the amount of fluid buildup in your tissues.
