Prenatal Massage

Benefits of Prenatal Massage

  • reduces swelling in your hands and feet
  • decreases stress hormones in your body and relaxes your muscles
  • increases blood flow, which is so important when you’re pregnant
  • relieves sciatica, joint pain, neck and back pain, leg cramping, and insomnia
  • lifts depression without the use of medication, according to some scientific studies
  • relieves carpal tunnel pain, and alleviate headaches and sinus congestion

Massage therapy performed during pregnancy can reduce anxiety, decrease symptoms of depression, relieve muscle aches and joint pains, and improve labor outcomes and newborn health.

Massage helps to stimulate soft tissues to reduce collection of fluids in swollen joints, which also improves the removal of tissue waste, carried by the body’s lymph system. Many women have experienced significant reduction in sciatic nerve pain during pregnancy through regular massage.

 

Pregnancy Massage

Pregnancy is a time when a woman’s body endures tremendous stress due to dramatic physical and emotional changes. Using various techniques specially developed for the expecting mother, Pregnancy Massage helps release the pain and discomfort experienced throughout pregnancy. The benefits are profound, including emotional support, the relief of joint pain due to extra weight and postural imbalance, plus improved breathing and relaxation.

Postpartum Massage

Assists with restoring the mother’s body to its pre-pregnant condition. It helps release tension and muscle soreness of the back, abdomen, and pelvis resulting from labor as well as that of the neck, shoulders, and arms due to feeding the infant. The benefits include reducing fatigue, restoring balance and energy, realigning the pelvis, ribs, and abdominal organs, along with easing breast feeding.

Infant Massage

Infant Massage promotes the healthy development of your infant. Caring human touch is crucial for a healthy thriving baby, and the benefits of massaging your infant are potent and numerous. For example, many infants show improved growth and development of the brain and nervous system. Infant massage may also improve the quality of a baby’s sleep, strengthen their immune system, and aid in the bonding process between parent and child.
