Why you need a prenatal massage!
Everyone knows that massage is beneficial. But, did you know that massage is even more beneficial during pregnancy?
Let’s talk about some benefits that women experience during a prenatal massage:
- A prenatal massage provides a soothing, nurturing touch. During your prenatal massage, the therapist will focus on areas of discomfort that you might be experiencing to help relieve them. Many women experience back pain. By spending time working on your lower back, the massage therapist is helping to alleviate the back pain caused by the weight of the baby. Other areas of discomfort that massage can help are : stiff neck, leg cramps, headaches, and soreness.
- A prenatal massage provides focused, individualized attention. During pregnancy, many women experience higher stress, provoked by worries and anxieties. This stress can have a negative impact on childbearing and development. By taking an hour to yourself you are allowing your body to relax which helps to reduce the stress caused by every day activities.
- A prenatal massage helps to soothe and relax the nervous system. What does this mean for you? This means that you are going to be able to sleep easier and deeper. Right now I know you aren’t getting much sleep with the baby moving around a lot at night, with a prenatal massage, it will help you to get to better sleep. Most doctors will agree that a relaxed mother will have a happier, healthier pregnancy.
Think of prenatal massage as safe, drug-free pain relief.
