Beneficial for Mother & Baby

What are the benefits of prenatal massage?

First and foremost, prenatal massage makes you feel good. It nurtures and pampers the body at a time when it needs it most.

In addition to soothing the body and dissolving stress, a trained touch delivers a wide range of physiological, psychological, and emotional benefits.

Just like a regular massage, benefits of prenatal massage include:

  • improved circulation
  • aids lymphatic flow
  • detoxification
  • increased relaxation
  • increased endorphin levels
  • ease in neck, back, and joint pain
  • relief of muscle spasms and cramps

What symptoms can prenatal massage treat?

Prenatal massage is a safe and relaxing way to relieve pregnancy’s common discomforts such as:

  • backaches
  • carpal tunnel syndrome
  • leg cramps and shakes
  • headaches
  • heartburn
  • fatigue
  • hemorrhoids
  • nasal congestion
  • sciatica
  • shortness of breath

Why get a prenatal massage?

Prenatal massage does more than benefit the mother. Everything a pregnant woman does — from her diet and fitness to her relaxation and relative state of contentment – also directly affects the child she is carrying.

Study after study has proven that calmness in the mother leads to healthier in-utero development.

Regular prenatal massage can help prepare you for labor by making the pelvis more supple.
