Pregnancy Massage

You may think of massage as a luxury to indulge in on occasion. But one of the most beneficial times for massage may be during pregnancy. Pregnancy massage is a catch-all term for any hands-on massage during or after pregnancy (prenatal or postnatal massage). Pregnancy massage is similar in many ways to a normal massage, the main difference being that massage techniques used in pregnancy are adapted to maintain the wellbeing of mother and child. Techniques vary from firmer massages to relieve discomfort, or softer massages to help relax the expectant mother. It’s possible for women to receive massages throughout the duration of their pregnancy, with techniques adapted to each stage of pregnancy. Women in their first trimester may not want a massage or may want to get approval from their doctor because of the increased risk of miscarriage associated with the first 12 weeks of pregnancy. You should also avoid massages on your abdomen during the first trimester.

Benefits include: Relief from aching muscles and joint pain, reduction in anxiety and stress, improved sleep, reduced swelling, reduced cramps, reduced constipation and reduced nerve pain. It also helps to reduce the baby’s stress hormones.
