Let’s have a look at some ways you and the developing baby can benefit from this holistic approach and prepare you for birth.

Relief of Muscular Pain |

Carrying a baby inside you is a big deal, and it’s no surprise that you feel the pressure of the developing baby on many parts of your body. Regular pregnancy massage sessions during and after pregnancy can relieve a number of chronic bodily aches and pains such as lower back pain, shoulder pain, neck pain, tension headache, muscle cramps, and joint pain.

Relieve Tension and Stress |

Prenatal stress and depression is quite common in pregnant women and can be very problematic for mothers. Pregnancy massage not only stabilises the stress hormone (cortisol) levels, it also boosts the production of feel-good hormones to induce a sense of calmness. As a result, you are able to feel happy and relaxed and enjoy good quality sleep.

Reduction in Inflammation | Pregnancy Massage Melbourne

Besides reduced blood circulation, a number of factors contribute to the swelling or inflammation of joints during pregnancy. Studies show that pregnancy massage not only reduces fluid collection, it also stimulates soft tissues and speeds up the process of waste removal in the lymphatic system thereby reducing inflammation of the swollen joints.

If you want to stay healthy, stress-free, and pain-free during your pregnancy months, you need to schedule regular pregnancy massage Melbourne sessions. However, before you do that make sure to consult with your prenatal care provider especially if you are experiencing any complications.
