How massage will benefit you during your pregnancy
Studies support what more and more women are discovering about massage therapy during pregnancy – it has been shown to:
- improve maternal mood
- decrease depression and anxiety
- decrease pain
- decrease stress hormones in pregnant women (including those suffering from depression)
- decrease obstetrical complications, and
- improve neonatal health and development.
In addition, the overall benefit of improved mood to maternal and neonatal health has the potential to positively impact the health of individual mothers and children.
Common Concerns about Pregnancy Massage
You and your baby’s well-being comes first. Massage Therapists are professionally trained to work with you to develop an effective and safe massage therapy treatment plan during your pregnancy that will complement the care you are receiving from your doctor and other healthcare providers. Specially-designed massages tables, ergonomic cushions and supports are used to ensure your safety and comfort during your massage therapy treatment. Massage Therapists are also prepared to address the subtle needs of expectant mothers like yourself, including the potential need for frequent restroom breaks and the use of unscented massage oil so as to not aggravate a sensitive sense of smell. Good communication with your therapist will result in the most beneficial and rewarding pregnancy-massage therapy for you and your baby.
