If anyone could benefit from a nice, relaxing massage, it’s expectant mothers. Between the aches and pains, heightened stress and numerous other issues that go along with pregnancy, they need every treatment they can get to help ensure the health and well-being of themselves and their baby. So let’s have a look at a few of the top benefits of Prenatal Massage and find out why they’re so effective.
An incredibly common issue during pregnancy, muscle aches and joint pain can become a constant, especially in the third trimester. This ever-present concern makes every aspect of your day more difficult, having a negative impact on your work, relationships and sleep.
Prenatal Massage focuses on the gentle relief of your worst trouble areas, as well as an overall relaxation of your body, to remove all your built-up tension and allow your mind to ease into a more tranquil state. Putting your busy life on hold for a time to get away and focus on you and your baby can have profound effects on your mobility, mood and more.
Heightened stress is a virtually universal issue for expectant mothers. Adding the stress of pregnancy to a likely already stressful life can put you under tremendous strain. And with limited exercise, powerful food cravings and troubled sleep, your traditional means of destressing are greatly reduced, if not removed altogether.
Similar to the reduction in muscle and joint pain, Prenatal Massage has the same effect on your stress levels. And similar to regular massage, it can help regulate blood pressure — allowing the body to relax and let go. Some time away for a little pampering melts the stress away like nothing else can, leaving you all the more prepared for tomorrow’s challenges.
As with so many health concerns, many of them are interconnected. You’re in pain, so you can’t sleep. The pain and lack of sleep cause more stress. More stress leads to worse sleep and more aches. On and on in vicious little circles.
But with Prenatal Massage — especially at regular intervals — relief is cyclical too. Reducing pain can lead to improved sleep, which can reduce stress. Reduced stress can lead to even better sleep and even less pain. Maybe interconnected health issues aren’t so bad after all!
